Hi folks,

I have Intune and SCCM working together in my environment, using CO-Management.

But I was thinking, I have a simple doubt.

To Enroll new computers in Intune I need a working SCCM Client on each machines, right?

But, after the Intune enrollment, if my SCCM Client stops to communicate with SCCM Server or is removed from the machine... the computer will be pulled out from Intune too or will keep working in Intune without SCCM Client?

    Once enrolled in Intune, the device will remain enrolled. However, depending on the MDM authority on the device, the workload management can get affected if the Configuration Manager agent is not healthy. Take a look at this - windows-autopilot-for-pre-provisioned.html

    If the MDM is Intune only, so after the enrollment can I remove SCCM Client?

    @Patrick Mor , From your description, it seems we have both SCCM and Intune in our environment. And you want to do co-management and remove configuration manager agent. If there's any misunderstanding, feel free to let us know.

    In general, co-management is mainly for the devices we want to be managed by both configuration manager and Intune. Based on my understanding, it seems there are some devices you want to be managed only via Intune. If so, I think we can consider other enrollment methods instead of co-management. For example, we can choose Autopilot Azure AD join method for new devices only want to join to Azure AD to speed up the business ready time. Or we can choose Azure AD join + automatic enrollment for existing devices. Or for Hybrid Azure AD join device (Both join to on premise AD and register to Azure AD), we can also choose Autopilot Hybrid Azure AD join for new devices. And GPO enrollment for existing devices. Here are some links with windows enrollment for your reference:

    Hope it can help.
