Microsoft has released Azure Active Directory Connect 1.1.443.0 which includes several bug fixes and new features that your environment will need, especially if you use AD FS:
- Added support for updating AD FS Farm SSL Certificate
- Added support for managing AD FS 2016
- You can now specify existing gMSA (Group Managed Service Account) during AD FS installation
- You can now configure SHA-256 as the signature hash algorithm for Azure AD relying party trust.
That last bullet point is very important now that the SHA1 algorithm has been cracked, as I wrote last month.
Azure AD Connect makes on-premises and Office 365 directory integration easy and simplifies the management of your on-premises and cloud identity infrastructure.
