All About Identity And Security On-Premises And In The Cloud – It's Just Like An Addiction, The More You Have, The More You Want To Have!

(2016-12-11) Azure AD Connect v1.1.371.0 Has Been Released

Integrating your on-premises directories with Azure AD makes your users more productive by providing a common identity for accessing both cloud and on-premises resources. With this integration users and organizations can take advantage of the following:

  • Organizations can provide users with a common hybrid identity across on-premises or cloud-based services leveraging Windows Server Active Directory and then connecting to Azure Active Directory.
  • Administrators can provide conditional access based on application resource, device and user identity, network location and multifactor authentication.
  • Users can leverage their common identity through accounts in Azure AD to Office 365, Intune, SaaS apps and third-party applications.
  • Developers can build applications that leverage the common identity model, integrating applications into Active Directory on-premises or Azure for cloud-based applications

Azure AD Connect makes this integration easy and simplifies the management of your on-premises and cloud identity infrastructure.

Prerequisites for Azure AD Connect

More information about Azure AD Connect

New features:

  • Pass-through Authentication (Preview)

Known issue:

  • The issuerid claim rule for ADFS is missing in this build. The issuerid claim rule is required if you are federating multiple domains with Azure AD. If you are using Azure AD Connect to manage your on-premises ADFS deployment, upgrading to this build will remove the existing issuerid claim rule from your ADFS configuration. You can work around the issue by adding the issuerid claim rule after install/upgrade. For details on adding issuerid claim rule, please refer to this article on Multiple Domain Support for Federating with Azure AD.

Fixed issues:

  • Azure AD Connect installation or upgrade fails if Port 9090 is not opened for outbound connection.


  • N.A.

I ran the MSI and upgraded from the previous version without any issues!
