Following the release of a new version of the AAD Connect, Microsoft has changed again the way to configure the directory synchronization schedule and the manual start.

Enable the schedule

After the installation or the upgrade, the synchronization process has been paused.

To resume it, open a PowerShell console and run the following command Set-ADSyncScheduler -MaintenanceEnabled $false -SyncCycleEnabled $true

Configure the directory synch schedule

As said in my previous post, the new synchronization period is every 30 minutes

If you want/need to change this schedule, open a PowerShell console and run the following command

Set-ADSyncScheduler –CustomizedSyncCycleInterval

Manual Start of a Synch

If you need to manually start a synchronization, still within the PowerShell console run the command

Start-ADSyncSyncCycle -PolicyType Delta for delta sync

Start-ADSyncSyncCycle -PolicyType Initial for a full sync
