I upgrade my ad-connect server to the last version (, And now I have a problem with the password sync, from AD to 365, it's taking 30 minutes to sync.

(I don't have any problem with my forests...)

Any suggestions?

    @Bar076 Thanks for reaching out.

    Unless there is some issue, this should not take that much. Check event logs for events that might show errors for password sync.
    On your Synchronization service client, check if there are any errors ?

    Also check if the DC with which the service is communication, is it too far ? Check with other DCs and add the nearest one on preferred options to see if that makes any difference. you will need to add the fqdn of the DC there.
