If you have run the Azure AD Connect installer and you face the stuck issue then you have to cancel the upgrade progress. Go and check the precaution requirements are met first then try to repair your Azure AD Connect upgrade using the installer.

Error may pop-up when you cancel your half way of your upgrade progress. Rerun the Azure AD Connect installer and select repair will finish up where you last left.

*Note

Impact:

  1. Synchronization is stopped while you are upgrading or repairing
  2. New User creation will not get sync immediately while you are upgrading or repairing
  3. If you have larger amount of users and devices (example 2000 and above) then you will have longer upgrading time. Estimated 10 to 15 minutes
