Locate Your Azure AD Connect Server

KB ID 0001558


Either you know you are using Azure AD Connect, but don’t know what server it’s running on, or you just want to see if someone has installed it! Here’s how to find which server it’s running on.


In ‘Active Directory Users and Computers’ > Search for MSOL > This should display the GSMA (Group Managed Service Account) that is used to run the service* > In the account properties > on the Description attribute, scroll to the right and you should see the Computer/Server that the service was installed on.

*Note: Unless someone chose a different account when they installed Azure AD Connect, with custom settings, (see below).
