Unattended installation Azure AD Connect
Provide The ability to perform unattended/silent installation of Azure AD Connect using either/ or both commandline or answer file for the installation parameters.
This is highly needed for re-Deployment of test/Dev environments and especially for hosting/service providers with many customers
We are not planning to implement this functionality at this time.
Ryan Fisher commented
Is this declined because of the move towards the online sync service?
Dicky Moore commented
Hang on, can we really not automate this? Come on, Microsoft! Everything should be automatable, otherwise your users will be lost to linux.
All you software needs to support full automation. What is the point of you trying to push your customers down the DevOps route when you make decisions like this!!!!
Aad Lutgert commented
Do you have an update?
Sten Lootens commented
We really need this for our OTAP Infrasturcture as code environment.
How is this still not a thing? :(
Rob Waggoner commented
Do you have a ETA on when this capability will be available?
Product is pretty useless without this.
Mike Bain commented
I can’t believe this isn’t a thing. Unattended installation, powershell configuration, and server core should all be supported for Azure AD Connect.
JJ Dios commented
Is this still being investigated?
Manuel Bonvarlet commented
I would like this feature to do mass-install automatically.
We would like this as well...
Scripted install (file for settings)
Install on a Core/Nano server
Docker support? (For multi tenant...)
Tim Wiser commented
Any update on this yet? We'd love automatic installation.
We need this, too.
Goebel Niklas commented
We need this, too. We have many customers and I have to update all Azure AD Connect systems...
Leee Jeffries commented
I'll second this, its a very nice to have in an IaC environment like Azure/AWS or Google.
Adam Brown commented
Another vote for this, This is really needed
Another vote for this, particularly with server core support. A scripted install + good PowerShell coverage is all I need.
Rob de Jong (Azure AD IAM) commented
Hi - we're currently investigating this idea to see what we can do
Ivan Palikuca commented
It would be great if such installation can be supported on Server core, it is pointless to run sync application in Desktop experience, rather implement this as a server role and ability to manage/setup this feature using RSAT or something like that.
