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!

(2018-04-01) Azure AD Connect v1.1.750.0 Has Been Released

Posted by Jorge on 2018-04-01


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.

Azure AD Connect: Version Release History

1.1.750.0

Released: 3/22/2018

Released for auto-upgrade and download

Prerequisites for Azure AD Connect

More information about Azure AD Connect

IMPORTANT: When the upgrade to this new version completes, it will automatically trigger a full sync and full import for the Azure AD connector and a full sync for the AD connector. Since this may take some time, depending on the size of your Azure AD Connect environment, make sure that you have taken the necessary steps to support this or hold off on upgrading until you have found a convenient moment to do so.

IMPORTANT: “AutoUpgrade functionality was incorrectly disabled for some tenants who deployed builds later than 1.1.524.0. To ensure that your Azure AD Connect instance is still eligible for AutoUpgrade, run the following PowerShell cmdlet: “Set-ADSyncAutoUpgrade -AutoupGradeState Enabled”

Fixed issues:

Azure AD Connect

  • Set-ADSyncAutoUpgrade cmdlet would previously block Autoupgrade if auto-upgrade state is set to Suspended. This is now changed so it does not block AutoUpgrade of future builds.
  • Changed the User Sign-in page option "Password Synchronization" to "Password Hash Synchronization". Azure AD Connect synchronizes password hashes, not passwords, so this aligns with what is actually occurring. For more information see Implement password hash synchronization with Azure AD Connect sync

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

Cheers,
Jorge

    Every time sync rules are updated it will always trigger full syncs. Although the docs do not mentioned it, it will update sync rules, hence the notification.
    Especially in large/complex environments ALWAYS install in some test environment first and/or upgrade the staging aerver first to see what happens
