Be Aware: Your company's AAD Connect may Auto-Upgrade

Tuesday, July 25, 2017
Azure Active Directory Connect version 1.1.561.0 was just released and it expands the scope by which AAD Connect will automatically upgrade.

AAD Connect automatically checks for new builds ever since version 1.1.105.0, but some previous configurations have been unable to auto-upgrade due to customization. Examples include using a defined service account instead of the default account and AAD Connect staging mode installations, but their are many more new scenarios. Don't be surprised by unexpected upgrades now that this new version has been released.

Read my article, "Understanding Auto-Upgrade Options in Azure AD Connect" to learn the details about how it works and how to control it.
