How To Disable Azure AD Connect Auto Update

By default, Azure Active Directory Connect is configured to auto-update itself every time Microsoft releases a new version.

In some controlled environments with Change Management procedures, changes cannot be happening automatically without a change request and schedule maintenance window.

Get started

To get started, the first thing I do is check if auto-update is enabled on the Azure AD Connect Server using the PowerShell command below.

Get-adsyncAutoUpgrade

As you can see, Auto update is enabled

To disable auto update, I use the command below.

Set-ADSyncAutoUpgrade -AutoUpgradeState disabled

In case, you need to enable auto-update merely use the command below.

Set-ADSyncAutoUpgrade -AutoUpgradeState Enabled
