New Azure AD Connect Preview Released
You can now preview the new Azure AD Connect!
The long awaited new version of Azure AD Connect is now available for preview! With so many people finding it challenging to connect Microsoft Azure Active Directory to on premises identity infrastructure, Microsoft responded with Azure AD Connect.
The Azure AD Connect wizard is a tool that will help guide you in connect your on premise identity infrastructure to the cloud. You just choose your topology and needs (multiple or single directories, federation or password sync), and the wizard with configure everything required to get your connection up including AD FS, sync services, and Azure AD Powershell module.
The new tool includes the functionality previously released as AAD Sync and Dirsync, and these tools will not be released individually any more. Future improvements will all be included in Azure AD Connect updates so it will be simple to find the most current functionality.
