    Hi @Lulu

    Before stating the upgrade you should backup your servers.

    You can export all your azure AD connect settings , to be able to rebuild the server in case of issue.

    Start the upgrade on staging server , if the upgrade is ok , you can disable the staging mode on it and enabled it on the other server before launch its upgrade.

    HI Lulu,

    Have you looked at this link?

    I personally would just do it manually since you likely only have a few servers to do this on.

    For validation, I would just create a new AD user and verify it was added to Azure AD after a short period.

    Good luck.
