(2014-11-01) A New Version Of Azure Active Directory Sync Services Has Been Released (v1.0.470.1023)

Posted by Jorge on 2014-11-01


A few days ago, Microsoft has released a new version of the Azure Active Directory Sync Services (AADSync)

This version adds the following features:

  • Password synchronization from multiple on-premise AD to AAD
  • Localized installation UI to all Windows Server languages

Upgrading from AADSync 1.0 GA

If you already have Azure AD Sync installed, there is one additional step you have to take in case you have changed any of the out-of-box Synchronization Rules. After you have upgraded to the 1.0.470.1023 release, the synchronization rules you have modified are duplicated. For each modified Sync Rule do the following:

  • Locate the Sync Rule you have modified and take a note of the changes.
  • Delete the Sync Rule.
  • Locate the new Sync Rule created by Azure AD Sync and re-apply the changes.

Permissions for the AD account

The AD account must be granted additional permissions to be able to read the password hashes from AD. The permissions to grant are named “Replicating Directory Changes” and “Replicating Directory Changes All”. Both permissions are required to be able to read the password hashes.

Release Note: Changing the AD password

After password sync has been enabled, if the password of the account used by the AD Connector is changed through the UI then password synchronization must by disabled and re-enabled.
