DirSync is no longer supported and M$ wants me to upgrade to Azure AD Connect

DirSync is currently running on its own VM and is working as it should. The question is: where do I download and install Azure AD Connect to ?

You mean this?

Microsoft Azure Active Directory Connect 
Azure AD Connect allows you to quickly onboard to Azure AD and Office 365

AND THIS

Integrating your on-premises identities with Azure Active Directory

Thanks guys - its a tad confusing for me because the VM we are running DirSync on will be retired as we are moving everything to Azure.

So it looks like I have to install a parallel install on an existing DC or member server (single domain)

Tad harsh, both tools are free.

But I'd advise you to evaluate what AD Connect will do for you and what DirSync is doing.

Both do very similar jobs......but notice I said similar, there are some differences we are trying to understand.

Not trying to be harsh...

I honestly have not been able to touch any of it but would love to learn more about it.

I read through the second link and I "think" if I had the infrastructure could get it working...  But it seems anything AZURE is Obscure by design...

Again wasn't trying to be harsh at all, I have not worked on it yet either.

I think his reference was to me using the term EMM Dollars !

This whole Azure thing is going to be fun !!

Consolidating 40 VM's and running published apps in Azure remote app.

I will try to keep you guys in the loop with how it is going.

Why do I feel like an early adopter ?

Yes, I was referring to the M$.

Yes your an early adopter, and no your a late follower.
Azure is changing so quickly, what was new 3 weeks ago is now old and replaced with another new.

There's no need to install it on a dc though, a member server will do. And the azure connect wizard is very straighforward, so i would suggest setting up a lab wit a dc and a member server and just try it.

The only thing that could be make it more complex, is if you sync certain specific objects or have custom settings in your dirsync. So check that in depth before setting up azure connect in your prod env.
