AADConnect : Unable to connect to the Synchronization Service Manager

Posted by

This is a reminder to myself, long time ago I needed to configure an ADConnect service, since today. I used other account to configure the service, but when I tried to access to the server with another account I was receiving the follwing error:

Unable to connect to the Synchronization Service.

Some possible reasons are:

  1. The service is not started.
  2. Your account is not a member of a required security group.

See the Synchronization Service documentation for details

Solution:

Check if the Microsoft Azure AD Sync Service is started

Check is your account is a member of the local ADSyncAdmins and/or ADSyncOperators group,if not, add the current user to this group and logoff and logon again !
