Trust Onprem AD to Azure AD

Leonardo Iacoviello 1 Reputation point

Hi all,
I've this scenario: one Onprem domain configured and one Azure AD with a development environment.
Now all developers use Azure Users to logon into VM joined to Azure domain.
My need is to permit developers to logon into Azure vm with onprem AD credentials.
Is there a way to make a trust between Onprem domain to Azure AD?
What is the best approach to accomplish this?
Thanks in advance.

    Hi @Leonardo Iacoviello ,

    Azure AD Connect should be helpful to get your requirement done:

    With Azure AD Connect your on-premises user accounts can be synced to Azure AD. This way it should be possible to login with an on-premises user account on an Azure AD joined VM.

    First you need to make sure that users are synced from on-premises to Azure AD.
    You will have to spin up a new VM in Azure and promote it as a domain controller. Post this you need to establish a connection between on-premises domain and domain controller in Azure.

    Make the VM that is used by developers as part of domain in Azure AD. Now, users can use there on-premises credentials to login to VM.

    Let me know if this helped in resolving the issue.
