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!

(2019-12-10) Azure AD Connect v1.4.38.0 Has Been Released

Posted by Jorge on 2019-12-10


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.

New Features And Improvements

    • We updated Password Hash Sync for Azure AD Domain Services to properly account for padding in Kerberos hashes. This will provide a performance improvement during password synchronization from AAD to Azure AD Domain  Services.
    • We added support for reliable sessions between the authentication agent and service bus.
    • This release enforces TLS 1.2 for communication between authentication agent and cloud services.
    • We added a DNS cache for websocket connections between authentication agent and cloud services.
    • We added the ability to target specific agent from cloud to test for agent connectivity.

    Fixed issues

    • Release 1.4.18.0 had a bug where the PowerShell cmdlet for DSSO was using the login windows credentials instead of the admin credentialss provided while running ps. As a result of which it was not possible to enable DSSO in multiple forest through the AADConnect user interface.
    • A fix was made to enable DSSO simultaneously in all forest through the AADConnect user interface

    I ran the MSI and upgraded from the previous version without any issues and ran at least one scheduled sync cycle! I do not have auto-upgrade enabled, therefore unfortunately I cannot say anything about this version.

    Cheers,
