After the reinstall of the same verion of AD connect.
The error generate was "Unable to validate credentials due to an unexpected error, Restart Azure AD connect with/interactiveAuth Option to further diagnose the issue"
Also connect using the global admin details on the PC's connected to local domain.
Error from the landing page is "Sorry,that didn't work, Please go back to office.com and try again. thanks"

    First of all - for PTA you need PTA agent installed, probably it was installed. Second - are you sure, that after fresh installation of AAD Connect you set the same settings? Did synchronization of accounts between on-premises and Azure AD working fine? It should be visible information about synchronization errors in Office 365 admin portal home page or Azure Active AD - Connect Health blade. Of course you need use cloud account to logon if PTA is not working properly.
