Azure AD Connect Update Removes Scheduled Task
Good Morning Everyone,
This morning I was setting up Azure AD Connect for a client who will be migrating to Office365. As a part of the project I had to configured Azure AD Connect on one of their servers for Password Synchronization. Microsoft has updated the tool and removed the scheduled task for AD Synchronization.
The 2 biggest changes from a deployment perspective are:
- The default synchronization cycle has been lowered from 3 hours to 30 minutes. You can change this setting but if you set it to a value lower then 30 minutes then it will be unsupported by Microsoft.
- The Syncing configurable options have been moved from the scheduled task to Powershell only.
As of today there are only a few documents about this on the internet and they don’t show up on the front page of google. Here is what I found while troubleshooting the changes this morning.
