One concept is confusing me. At my newly joined work environment we have Active Directory federations services installed — where my understanding is: our every login request for our domain.com is routed to our ADFS and once authenticated by Internal AD ADFS gives Yes or No to Azure.
However, I have also found on one of server AD connect is installed. Where as my understanding is that AD connect is used for Passthrough or Hash synchronization, which should not have any connection in our environment as it is federation and this configuration/install is some OLD stuff of config mistake ?
Or Am I missing some important concept here?
is there a role for AD connect in ADFS ?
