Convert my federated identity to standard

I setup my tenant with a Lab for federation and now the lab server no longer exists. I need to change my tenant back to standard. I tried to follow this article.

    Hello @ThorFayad-9505 ,

    As your server does not exist so you can use the Set-MsolDomainAuthentication cmdlet directly to convert to managed authentication for your domain . You would need to use the Connect-MsolService to connect to the Microsoft Online service before you can run the below command . As you have already run the script that you linked I believe you would have it already setup on your machine. You can change the authentication for the domain to Managed using the following cmdlet .

     PS C:\Users> Set-MsolDomainAuthentication -Authentication Managed -DomainName
     PS C:\Users> Get-MsolDomain
     Name                        Status     Authentication
     ----                        ------     --------------                Verified      Managed                     Verified      Federated                 Verified       Federated                  Verified       Managed                     Unverified   Managed
