Hi All, A few Weeks ago, i was surprised with an Warning in Microsoft 365 Admin Center. The Directory sync Status showed that i was using an old Version of AAD Connect. Warning Message: We detected you’re using an outdated directory sync tool, We recommend you go to the Microsoft Download Center to get the latest version of Azure AD Connect. When i checked in Entra Admin Center, i could clearly see that it was showing the newest AAD Connect Version.
