Azure AD compliance RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi 

    Would someone be able to explain to me why when a device is registered within azure AD it creates two instances of this device.

    See below.

    Why are 2 instances of the device required and what is the difference between each?

  • Hi Rick,

    This is answered in the FAQ.

    Q: Why do I see duplicate device entries in the Azure portal?

    A:

    • For Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016, repeated tries to unjoin and rejoin the same device might cause duplicate entries.
    • Each Windows user who uses Add Work or School Account creates a new device record with the same device name.
    • For down-level Windows OS versions that are on-premises Azure Directory domain joined, automatic registration creates a new device record with the same device name for each domain user who signs in to the device.
    • An Azure AD joined machine that's wiped, reinstalled, and rejoined with the same name shows up as another record with the same device name.
