Need to change AAD service account

Copper Contributor

We are using AD connect to sync users/passwords from on premise but we need to change the username and or password of the account used on the AAD connector.

Haven't tested but this should work:

1. Create a new account for sync and give it a "Directory Synchronization Accounts" -role

New-MsolUser -UserPrincipalName -DisplayName "Sync Account" -Password yourpassword -PasswordNeverExpires $true -ForceChangePassword $false
Add-MsolRoleMember -RoleName "Directory Synchronization Accounts" -RoleMemberEmailAddress

2. On AAD Connect computer, run the following command and give the new credentials
