Moving AADC (federation with ADFS) to another server

Dragos Criveanu 21 Reputation points


When moving Azure AD Connect from one server to another which is basically a new install, do I have to perform any other tasks to establish the ADFS trust with the new AADC install other then pointing to the existing ADFS farm? The domain is already federated.

Thank you.

    New Azure AD Connect does not have any impact on existing ADFS/WAP infrastructure. Azure AD Connect is completely separated from it. Azure AD Connect can be used to simplify some operational tasks on your ADFS infrastructure like initial config, creating necessary claim rules, updating certificates, etc., but even this is not mandatory - you can do the changes manually directly on the ADFS/WAP servers.

    So, simply said, you can deploy new Azure AD Connect and you don't need to do any changes on your existing ADFS/WAP servers.
