KB-6342: Adding users via Powershell Error: New-MsolUser: You must provide a required property: Parameter name: FederatedUser.SourceAnchor

Centrify Identity Service, App Edition ,   Centrify Identity Service, App Plus ,  

12 April,16 at 10:59 AM

Issue:
When attempting to add Active Directory users using PowerShell, the following error message occurs:

New-MsolUser: You must provide a required property: Parameter name: FederatedUser.SourceAnchor

Root Cause:  
Once a domain is federated, users can no longer be added to O365 via PowerShell.

Resolution:
Users can only be added via provisioning - using Centrify O365 provisioning (in Active Directory or Centrify User Service users) or using Azure Active Directory connect.
