AADConnect breaks when on prem Domain Admin PW changes

Iron Contributor

Hey everyone,


I've had this problem the last 3 or 4 times my AD domain admin password changed - aadconnect would break until I went into the FIM client on the machine and updated it.  I don't remember this happening before?  Did something change or do I have something configured incorrectly?


We are currently using 1.1.654.0.

What's the exact "break" though? Are you perhaps running the sync service in the context of this account?

Excellent question.  I don't remember exactly - I want to say I get sync error emails.  But I won't know for sure until May 11.


I just know that we start seeing symptoms that the sync is not working correctly.  Each time the PW expires, we have to follow this to resolve the problem  https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/connect/active-directory-aadconnectsync-chan...


I will keep an eye on it come May 11 and report back.
