Task Scheduler has disappeared in AADCONNECTPosted: March 3, 2016
The new version of the AADConnect has changed the way to configure the directory synchronization schedule and the manual start.
Don´t get crazy searching the task schedule from prior versions because in this new release has disappeared.
A new Powershell module has been set for this purpose.
Go to PowerShell and run Get-ADSyncScheduler.
It will show you something like this:
By default the synchronization period is 30 minutes and synchronization process is disabled (SyncCycleEnabled)
Run Set-ADSyncScheduler -MaintenanceEnabled $false -SyncCycleEnabled $true to enable the synchronization process cycle.
Run Set-ADSyncScheduler –CustomizedSyncCycleInterval if you want the scheduler to run at any other frequency than the default 30 minutes.
Run Start-ADSyncSyncCycle -PolicyType Initial to initiate a manual Initial synchronization.
Run Start-ADSyncSyncCycle -PolicyType Delta to initiate a manual Delta synchronization
