Some of us want to use Essentials server rule for federation with Office365 in small companies, where we have more than one DC. Until now, this was a non supported functionality and it was not possible to install it (in this case, you received an error, that this is possible only on a DC – here is the article). August rollup for Server 2012R2 solves this issue and now it is possible to use the Essentials sync option for Office 365 also if you have more than one DC. You can download the update here..
