Azure Active Directory Sync (aka DirSync) OU Filtering “missing-partition”

Problem:  DirSync OU Filtering – missing-partition-for-run-step dirsync

In this blog I am not going to describe how to configure DirSync OU filtering.  You can find a great description of how to do that very thing here.

In this blog I am going to describe how I resolved the following error while configuring DirSync OU filtering

Error:  missing-partition-for-run-step dirsync

I this scenario, my customer’s organization had a parent domain (company.com) and child domain (child.company.com)

I was trying to sync an OU in the parent domain only. Turns out, that in order to use DirSync OU filtering in this scenario, I have to select OU’s in both parent and child domain.

Solution:

Created an empty OU in the child domain (called it DirSync for example), selected this OU for DirSync filtering in addition to the OU I wanted in the parent domain.

Problem solved J
