Rename Azure AD Sync Server

Rename Azure AD Sync Server

Q. Can I rename my Azure AD Sync (AADSync/DirSync) Server?

A. Behind the scenes Azure AD Sync (AADSync/DirSync) leverages Forefront Identity Manager (FIM) which does not support a server rename. If you want to rename your AADSync/DirSync server then the process would be:

  1. Uninstall AADSync/DirSync
  2. Rename the server
  3. Reinstall AADSync/DirSync
