I have a client ho has been using DirSync for a few years, everything working great until recently when syncing stopped.
It seems that now might be a good time to upgrade to AzureADConnect.
As I understand it AzureADConnect is better installed on a different server that the local AD DC (where DirSync is currently installed) but will AzureADConnect just pick up where DirSync left off? Don’t want to set off a first sync and then find everything gets duplicated – or wiped!
Anyone else tried this?
Azure AD Connect can be installed on a DC. See requirements here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/connect/active-directory-aadconnect-prerequisites
Here are instructions on how to upgrade from DirSync: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/connect/active-directory-aadconnect-dirsync-upgrade-get-started
It’s SBS we’re talking about and the DC keeps complaining that PowerShell 3 isn’t installed, I’ve installed it several times so that’s something else I’ll have to deal with. I’ve installed Azure AD Connect on a different server to avoid the problem for now, however I want to be sure that this won’t mess up the currently sync’d accounts that are already in the cloud.
I’ll take a look at the links and see where that takes me :)
