Copy local AD contacts to O365

Recently I needed a basic method to copy over contacts from a local AD to O365, and in cases where a read-write contact already exists; update it. The scenario made sense, as we were working with multiple source AD’s where some had contacts of each other’s mail users, causing adsync conflicts. Thus we decided to take contacts out of ADsync scope and just copy them once.

The logic of the attached script is as follows:









Note that the script ONLY imports the displayname, primary and all secondary email addresses, and sets an extra X500 address for the legacy exchangeDN to avoid outlook cache hit misses.
