Follow these simple steps to convert a domain to a federated domain. Take precaution to run the windows powershell from the desktop shortcut. Right click the desktop shortcut and 'Run as administrator'.

  1. $cred=Get-Credential
  2. Connect-MsolService -Credential $cred
  3. Convert-MsolDomainToFederated -DomainName xxxx.com -SupportMultipleDomain

In Step 3, if you dont have multiple domains in AD then you can leave out the SupportMultipleDomain switch

In Step 2, I was getting this error: 'The term 'Connect-MsolService' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program.'

Then I realized i didn't read your first paragraph properly. That is to run the powershell from the desktop shortcut. I was running it from the 'Start'. Surprisingly, when i run from the desktop icon, it works like a charm. Thanks for the tip
