If you ever want to update the account password that Azure AD Connect uses for its service account, you can do this by running a PowerShell cmdlet. Additionally, you will want to keep this handy in the event you receive the notorious “Error validating credentials” error message.

To do this, on the Azure AD Connect computer, open a PowerShell window with the administrator context and run the following:

Add-ADSyncAADServiceAccount

You’ll need to supply the Azure AD Global admin credentials, but this will effectively change the password for both Azure AD and the sync engine.
