Azure AD Connect version is a bug fix release

Azure AD Connect Splash Screen

Last week, a new version of Azure AD Connect was released: version This version is a bug fix release.

After every fresh major release of Azure AD Connect by Microsoft, several smaller hotfix releases update the functionality to prevent issues where administrators are not able to perform certain configurations or gain access to functionality.


Fixed issues

The following issues are addressed:


No Seamless Single Sign-on when account already exists

Version addresses an issue where an admin can’t enable Seamless Single Sign On if the AZUREADSSOACC computer account is already present in the Active Directory.

This account is the equivalent of the krbtgt account, but only for Kerberos traffic to the Azure AD Kerberos endpoint. If the account already exists, it could have a different password than what is stored in Azure AD. Now, this information is exchanged for proper setup of Seamless Single Sign-On, instead of erroring out.


Version 2 Import Delta Import Conflicts

Version addresses an issue that caused a staging error during delta import actions using the Version 2 (V2) endpoint for a conflicting object that was repaired via the health portal.


Incorrect import of disabled rules

Version addresses an issue in the Import/Export configuration where a disabled custom rule was imported as enabled.

The Import/Export configuration functionality was introduced in Azure AD Connect version
