Microsoft recently announced that from 1st September 2022, they will stop supporting Version 1 of Azure AD Connect.
Azure AD Connect is a tool provided by Microsoft to synchronise Windows Server Active Directory environments with Azure AD. All version 1 installations of Azure AD Connect will stop working 12 months from the date they are superseded by a newer version.
We are advising that all customers running Version 1, upgrade as soon as possible to avoid any potential disruption.
If you do not upgrade and continue to run a retired version of Azure AD Connect, it may unexpectedly stop working. You also might not have the latest security fixes, performance improvements, troubleshooting diagnostics tools, and service enhancements.
Cobweb can complete the upgrade to Version 2 for you through our Professional Services team who will conduct a discovery to determine the upgrade path options and recommend a course of action.
Alternatively, you may choose to carry out the upgrade internally.
To ensure you are not impacted by this change, you should implement a plan to have your existing installation of Azure AD Connect upgraded to version 2 as soon as possible.
To find out more information, book an upgrade or for any other Azure-related enquiry please fill in our contact form.
