Hello!

 

When we installed Azure AD Connect on the first server we used option "Create new account", those moment new account was created in our AD with prefix MOSL_xxxxxxxxxx. This accound has all necessary access rights for working with our local domain forest. Now we want to create second (staging) Azure AD Connect server, can we use the same account for our second installation? Or there is some limitations for this? How we can know this account password, or we can reset it? If we reset the password where we need to change it inside our first installation?
