Azure AD Connector account as Directory Synchronization Account

Brass Contributor

Hi guys,


I installed AD Connect in my demo environment and everything is working great, but my Azure AD Connector account is a Global Admin in my tenant, like a normal admin. I saw in the documentation that with the install of AD connect a Directory Synchronization Account is created like:


But I do not have it after the installation and nothing will show up if I run:


Get-AzureADDirectoryRole | where {$_.DisplayName -eq "Directory Synchronization Accounts"} | Get-AzureADDirectoryRoleMember

Have I done something wrong and how can I obtain it after the installation?

Found it, I don't know why this account is not created at the installation, but when I command "Add-ADSyncAADServiceAccount" from the AD connect server the account was created.
