A new version of AAD Connect – Azure Active Directory Connect – is now available.

This new version introduces new features such as:

  • Automatic update – currently only for previous installation using Express Settings
  • Support for MFA for administrator account during the installation
  • Change of the sign in method for end-user after installation – to switch between password sync and federation


  • You can now configure domains/OU’s filtering during the setup (or using the wizard after the upgrade)

Also, an important change; the default synchronization schedule is now every 30 min and it is also now supported to change it

You can download this new version http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=615771&clcid=0x409

As usual, any new features need to be configured after the upgrade by starting the configuration wizard
