AADC Support for Windows Server 2022 AD with Functional Level 2016

Copper Contributor

Hi Community,


I would like to know if AADC is supported for Windows Server 2022 with AD functional Level 2016.

@ZaimAbdulRasid, just to be precise, do you ask, if it is supported to work in an Active Directory with Windows Server 2022 DCs and Windows 2016 functional level? Or is the question, if an install of Azure AD Connect on a Windows Server 2022 DC is supported?


Azure AD Connect supports a functional level of Windows Server 2003 or later.

The currently supported operating system versions for an installation are Windows Server 2016 and 2019, as mentioned in the Download Center.
The information provided in the Download Center conflicts with the information available in the documentation. The documentation states "Windows Server 2016 or later".
I stick with the information provided for the current build available in Download Center.

Yes it is compatible, because this version you are downloading is already the new version 2.0. If you have servers with ad connect check the version, because in August it will be discontinued and there may be a problem.
To clarify, AADC install on Windows Server 2022 is it supported or compatible? Or has anyone every tried to install AADC on Windows Server 2022?

The reason because we are pushing to setup the AD using WIndows Server 2022 instead of Windows 2019.
Compatible in a sense of Functional Level compatibility or AADC install on Windows Server 2022? thanks.
ad connect v 2.0 funciona em 2022, eu recomendo instalar em 2019 até sair um documentação e para evitar problemas relacionados ao windows server 2022
