Are you currently on AAD Connect 126.96.36.199? If so, you need to act now!
Microsoft's AAD Connect version 188.8.131.52 is causing serious issues regarding the Azure AD Connect Health feature. Azure AD Connect Health is a critical component when it comes to monitoring your on-premises identity infrastructure. It allows you to maintain a reliable connection to Microsoft 365 and Microsoft services by providing monitoring capabilities to your key identity components.
Due to the severity of this bug and the importance of Azure AD Connect Health, users who updated to the 184.108.40.206 version are strongly encouraged to immediately take action to minimize damage and remediate the issue.
Fortunately, on March 31, 2021, Microsoft released AAD Connect 220.127.116.11 which remediates the major bug issues affecting Azure AD Connect Health in the previous 18.104.22.168 version. This update was released by Microsoft as a download only update and is not available for automatic update. In addition to these critical bug fixes, 22.214.171.124 contains a lot of important new features including updates to software that allows users to use the new AAD V2 endpoint.

Active Directory is the foundation of your network, and the structure that controls access to the most critical resources in your organization. The ENow Active Directory Monitoring and Reporting tool uncovers cracks in your Active Directory that can cause a security breach or poor end-user experience and enables you to quickly identify and remove users that have inappropriate access to privileged groups (Schema Admins, Domain Administrators). While ENow is not an auditing software, our reports reduce the amount of work required to cover HIPAA, SOX, and other compliance audits.
