    You can use this method:
    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/hybrid/how-to-connect-import-export-config

    or an older way of doing it:

    The better option is to build a new server and make the that primary and then remove AADConnect from the current one

    thanks for the info. We ended up restoring the server from backup and managed to upgrade the version and now its syncing.

    The only issue i have is that i am getting this.
