(2020-01-30) Deprecation Of Azure AD Connect Versions

Posted by Jorge on 2020-01-30


Starting on November 1st, 2020, Microsoft will begin implementing a deprecation process whereby versions of Azure AD Connect that were released more than 18 months ago will be deprecated. At that time Microsoft will begin this process by deprecating all releases of Azure AD Connect with version 1.1.751.0 (which was released on 4/12/2018) and older, and Microsoft will proceed to evaluate the deprecation of older versions of Azure AD Connect every time a new version releases.

You need to make sure you are running a recent version of Azure AD Connect to receive an optimal support experience. If you run a deprecated version of Azure AD Connect you may not have the latest security fixes, performance improvements, troubleshooting and diagnostic tools and service enhancements, and if you require support Microsoft may not be able to provide you with the level of service your organization needs.

If you have enabled Azure AD Connect for sync you will soon automatically begin receiving Health notifications that warn you about upcoming deprecations when you are running one of the older versions.

Please refer to this article to learn more about how to upgrade Azure AD Connect to the latest version

In other words: if you are still running the old stuff, start planning to get rid of it! There is NO excuse! Smile
