Answer is B ( No ) Initial will perform a full sync and add the user account created but it will take time, Delta, will kick off a delta sync and bring only the last change, so it will be "immediately" and will fulfill the requirements.

In the solution of this question they say ‚Äú-PolicyType Initial‚ÄĚ. However you must use ‚Äú-PolicyType Delta‚ÄĚ to get only the change made and sync it immediately. So the answer is ‚ÄúNo‚ÄĚ.

Yes, this technically works, but as per the question, you want the change to be immediate. If the Initial was run against a large directory, that could take some time. Instead, run a Delta to just capture the change made and sync it immediately: Start-ADSyncSyncCycle -PolicyType Delta. Thus answer is B, NO.

Immediate in this case can just mean that you don't need to wait of scheduled Sync, so to run the Initial sync should work also

This is the problem with Microsoft exams, interpreting the meaning of a work like immediately in a question. There is no way to "replicate the user information to Azure AD immediately", every replication process takes time. I would take the immediate to mean the fastest way. We don't know the size of AD so an initial could take a long time, so a delta is the only way, so I say the answer is B No, but Microsoft...

But is questions, it says needs to replicate the user information immediately. so it is pointed here for single user who recently added.

Selected Answer: B
As per MS article, take note of manually running; Full sync cycle A full sync cycle includes the following steps: Full Import on all Connectors Full Sync on all Connectors Export on all Connectors It could be that you have an urgent change that must be synchronized immediately, which is why you need to manually run a cycle. If you need to manually run a sync cycle, then from PowerShell run Start-ADSyncSyncCycle -PolicyType Delta. To initiate a full sync cycle, run Start-ADSyncSyncCycle -PolicyType Initial from a PowerShell prompt. Running a full sync cycle can be very time consuming, read the next section to read how to optimize this process. https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/hybrid/connect/how-to-connect-sync-feature-scheduler

A. Yes. The solution meets the goal of replicating the newly created user account from the on-premises Active Directory to Azure AD immediately. The Start-ADSyncSyncCycle PowerShell cmdlet is used to manually start a synchronization cycle of Azure AD Connect, which replicates changes from the on-premises Active Directory to Azure AD. By specifying the -PolicyType parameter with a value of "Initial," a full synchronization cycle is initiated, which replicates all changes that have not been synchronized to Azure AD.

Don't rely on 3rd party blogs. Use the MS documentation. The answer is B.

It's incorrect. Answer: B (no) -Delta is missing, since it needs to be immediate. Command would be : Start-ADSyncSyncCycle -PolicyType Delta

For the scenario where a new user account has been created in the on-premises Active Directory and needs to be replicated to Azure AD immediately, using the -PolicyType Initial parameter with the Start-ADSyncSyncCycle cmdlet would be the better option. This is because the Initial policy type triggers a full synchronization of all objects in the on-premises Active Directory to Azure AD, while the Delta policy type only synchronizes changes that have occurred since the last synchronization. Since the new user account is not yet synchronized to Azure AD, a full synchronization is required to ensure that it is replicated immediately.

No, the solution does not meet the goal. Running the Start-ADSyncSyncCycle -PolicyType Initial cmdlet initiates a full initial synchronization, which is not necessary in this case. To replicate the new user information to Azure AD immediately, you should run the following PowerShell cmdlet: Start-ADSyncSyncCycle -PolicyType Delta This cmdlet initiates a delta synchronization, which only synchronizes the changes made in the on-premises Active Directory, such as the new user account, to Azure AD.

I would choose B (No). There is no reason to perform an initial sync to synchronize recent changes. Although, the wording is ambiguous. Technically, an initial sync would synchronize those changes eventually.

B- No. To summarize, the main difference between ‚Äúinitial‚ÄĚ and ‚Äúdelta‚ÄĚ sync in AAD synchronization is that the initial sync transfers all the objects and attributes from the on-premises AD, while the delta sync only transfers the changes made since the last sync.

Selected Answer: B
The solution partially meets the goal. The Start-ADSyncSyncCycle -PolicyType Initial cmdlet initiates an initial sync cycle, which replicates all the changes from on-premises Active Directory to Azure AD. However, it is not recommended to use this cmdlet unless it is the first synchronization cycle because it will affect the performance of the server. Instead, you should use the Start-ADSyncSyncCycle -PolicyType Delta PowerShell cmdlet, which will replicate only the changes made to the on-premises Active Directory since the last synchronization cycle. This cmdlet will allow you to replicate the new user account to Azure AD immediately
