PS> Get-MsolDomainVerificationDns -DomainName “<federated_domain_name>”

ms########)Tip: To preserve some of the setup completed in the previous steps, leave the Windows Azure Active Directory Module for Windows Powershell command prompt window open until configuration of the Office 365 Connector has been completed.
