Manually syncing Azure AD

When Azure Connect is setup the quickest way to fire off a manual sync is through powershell.

For a full sync (new accounts etc):

import-module adsync
Start-ADSyncSyncCycle -PolicyType Initial

For a incremental sync (faster but not as thorough):

import-module adsync
Start-ADSyncSyncCycle -PolicyType delta

I normally save these as .ps1 files on the desktop of the server to I can quickly run them.
