Dear Sir/Madam,

Nice to meet you. Here is Patrick.

When I access my Azure AD Connect, I run the command Get-ADSyncScheduler

I found the option MaintenanceEnabled is Ture by default.

I would ask what's the difference for me to set True/False for this option?

Any impact for keep set it as True/False?

Thanks,
Patrick

    Hi, if you set to $false , then AADConnect wont be able to run its basic tasks that it needs:

    @FUNG, Patrick HK [ITS] ,

    Hi Patrick,

    Thanks for reaching out.

    I'd want to add to what @Andy David - MVP has already said.

    Yes, changing MaintenanceEnabled to false causes issues, hence it's not supported to disable maintenance tasks. Hope this helps.
