AADSync: Forcing/Manual Syncs

To perform a manual/forced sync in the AADSync tool, you now use the “DirectorySyncClientCmd.exe” application.


  • Launch PowerShell
  • Navigate to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Azure AD Sync\Bin
  • Run “DirectorySyncClientCmd.exe”


Depending on whether you want to do an initial sync or a delta sync, you append “initial” or “delta” to the command.

Until later,
