My understand is there is not a supported way to do this. What I would do is 
install a new AAD Connect server in Staging Mode, import any custom rules you 
have (you can export those to PowerShell in the Rules Editor), run it, and get 
it so you have zero unexpected deltas in the Sync Manager. At that point, you 
can shutdown the old AAD Connect, and rerun the wizard and take your new one 
out of Staging Mode.

You should have practically zero downtime with this approach.

Subject: [NTSysADM] AAD Connect question

Does anyone know if you can install AAD Connect with the default SQL Express 
and then later move the database to a SQL server? I know you can do this going 
from WID to SQL on ADFS:

But I can’t find anything about this on AAD Connect, which makes me think it’s 
not supported.
