ADMT v3.2 has been updated and re-released at To download the tool, you will need to sign in to the Connect site and sign up for the "Azure AD connection program."

The tool version remains 3.2 because the update does not include any new functionality. The main changes were to allow the tool to be installed on any version of Windows Server and allow it to migrate computers that run any version of Windows.

The ADMT Migration Guide is also updated and available for download at and online at

  • Even after login with the Microsoft Account, I'm not able to download the ADMT latest version. Kindly update the link to download the ADMT tool.

  • Thanks Hemananth. I am getting same error. I'm told someone is working to correct it. I will reply back when fixed.

  • Ok, the link is fixed. Thanks again to everyone who reported this.

  • Hi,

    the link is broken again. Is it possible fix it? Thanks

  • Thanks for reporting this Giovanni. Another person who works here at Microsoft also reported an error but I am not able to repro. The links are working for me. Are you able to join the Azure AD Connect program? That is a requirement in order to download anything from the AD Connect site.

  • Link is still broken.

  • Basically every link "linking" to the download of ADMT 3.2 is broken. The only link that does seem to work is the link to download the 'Active Directory Migration Tool (ADMT) Guide: Migrating and Restructuring Active Directory Domains', which doesn' service much of a purpose without the actual tool.

  • Thanks for reporting this Simon. Can you try opening the link in a new IE instance? In my case, I got an error if I try to open the link in my current IE instance, but if I open a new in-private IE instance, the link is working. I have reported this to the site owners.


  • The site owners say the link is working for them too, both in regular IE and in-private instance. If you experience an error, please let us know what error you are seeing, along with what browser you are using and any other repro steps that may help. You should be signing in by using a Microsoft account. We really appreciate everyone's help with this. It's been a difficult error to diagnose because we can't get consistent error repros.
