Connect company-owned PC to Azure AD Domain Services RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am new to Azure. Forgive me if my question is already answered

    Overview
    Our company does not have any on-premises infrastructure and we would like to mange company-owned devices through a cloud solution.
    we have settled on Azure platform and are tenants through Office 365 subscription.

    What we have achieved so far
    We have been following available documentation on how to set up virtual network, V.M. and domain services. Our V.M. is joined to the domain and we are able to see users who are in the Azure Active directory using ADAC. There are no viewable computers because none is joined to the domain.
    We are currently stuck on this guide:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory-domain-services/active-directory-ds-ldaps-configure-dns

    We don't know how to update this entry.
     

    What we would like to achieve
    After this step is completed, we would like to join user PCs to the managed domain.

    What we would like to know
    For us to connect user PCs, do they need to be on the same network with the V.M. and Domain Services(this would mean connecting through VPN)?

  • Hi,

    joining workstations to an Azure AD Domain Service is not an supported scenario

    This service is only intended for lift-and-shift of applications which cannot be migrated to Azure AD directly and instead need an "real" Active Directory.

    Manage company owned devices in a cloud-only solution should be done with Intune.
