Quick post and fix for Azure AD Connect in case of you face “stopped-server-down” error

Because this environment is running purely at Azure I thought that error is related to Network Security Groups which are under construction at the moment in this environment. Ran AADC Network and Name Resolution tool but it was all green

Next try was following commands which worked for me

  • Set-ADSyncScheduler -SyncCycleEnabled $FALSE
  • Start-ADSyncSyncCycle -PolicyType Initial
  • Start-ADSyncSyncCycle -PolicyType Delta
  • Set-ADSyncScheduler -SyncCycleEnabled $TRUE

After commands above everything was working as expected

Hope this helps in case you face similar error!
