Microsoft announces simplified Azure AD Connect Health licensing model

Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) Connect Health helps you monitor and gain insights into your on-premises identity infrastructure and the synchronization services.  Microsoft yesterday announced the general availability of Azure AD Connect Health for Windows Server AD DS and Azure AD Connect Health Sync Error Reports. Microsoft also announced a simplified Azure AD Connect Health licensing model. Read about the changes below.

  • First Connect Health agent requires at least one Azure AD Premium license.
  • Each additional agent requires 25 additional incremental AADP licenses.
  • Agent count is equivalent to the total number of agents registered per role (AD FS, Azure AD Connect, AD DS) per server.

Azure AD Connect Health for Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) provides monitoring for domain controllers that are installed on Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2, and Windows Server 2016. The Health Agent installation enables you to monitor your on-premises AD DS environment from the cloud.

With the Sync Error Reports within Azure AD Connect Health for Sync it’s now easy to get all the relevant information about sync errors in one place. This reduces the time required to fix errors and helps your users embrace the cloud.
