I have followed the instructions but still cannot seem to connect to Azure AD. If I install the latest Azure AD powershell module I can connect via powershell. As soon as I uninstall and install the version described in the HOW-TO I get that it threw an exception. Please advise.

We are an education location. The main difference I see is when signing in. With the newer version the dialog box that pops for sign in is a web form. When using the module described in the HOW-TO it is the simple username and password dialog box.

Hello,

As soon as I uninstall and install the version described in the HOW-TO I get that it threw an exception.

Could you post here a screenshot of the exception you face?

When I use the newer Powershell module I am able to log right in.

Here is the log file when it is connecting.

Hello,

To resolve the issue:

  1. Stop Softerra Adaxes Service.
  2. Uninstall Microsoft Online Services Sign-In Assistant.
  3. Download the Microsoft Online Services Sign-In Assistant here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/downloa ... x?id=41950 and install it.
  4. Start Softerra Adaxes Service.
0

That worked... Not sure where I messed up.

Thank you

For some reason, Microsoft has 2 editions of Microsoft Online Services Sign-In Assistant with exactly the same name and version :roll: It is very easy to get confused.
