Version 126.96.36.199 of Azure AD Connect that was released just last week seems to have an issue with the Azure AD Connect Health agent.
You intend to synchronize objects from one or more on-premises Active Directory Domain Services implementations to an Azure AD tenant.
You install Azure AD Connect version 188.8.131.52 to act as the synchronization tool. Azure AD Connect is Microsoft's free tool to synchronize objects from Active Directory and LDAPv3-compatible identity stores to Azure AD.
After installation of Azure AD Connect version 184.108.40.206, the Health services are not registered.
The issue is caused by an error in Version 220.127.116.11 of Azure AD Connect. This error will be resolved in subsequent versions of Azure AD Connect.
If the Azure AD Connect Health for Sync agent registration fails after you successfully install Azure AD Connect, then you can use a line of Windows PowerShell to manually register the agent.
Use this PowerShell command only if the agent registration fails after you install Azure AD Connect.
Manually register the Azure AD Connect Health agent for Sync by using the following line of Windows PowerShell:
Register-AzureADConnectHealthSyncAgent -AttributeFiltering $false -StagingMode $false
The command takes following parameters:
- AttributeFiltering: $true (default) if Azure AD Connect isn't syncing the default attribute set and has been customized to use a filtered attribute set. Otherwise, use $false.
- StagingMode: $false (default) if the Azure AD Connect server is not in staging mode. If the server is configured to be in staging mode, use $true.
When you're prompted for authentication, use the same Global admin or Hybrid Identity admin account (such as firstname.lastname@example.org) that you used to configure Azure AD Connect.
The Azure AD Connect Health services will start after the agent has been successfully registered.
