Machine sign-in formats for Azure AD

Mountain Pond 1,321 Reputation points


I would like to add devices to Intune via Group Policy. The devices are in the domain, but the domain for azure is

The user exists in both Azure and AD.

Of course, I will not be able to enter, because. the system will contact AD.

Found this option: AzureAD\ But the answer is returned to me is not a valid username or password.

What are the alternative login methods? So that the user is signed in as an Azure AD user, not as a domain user.

Thank you.

    @Mountain Pond Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Q&A.

      • What is the point of this article then? Of course, in most cases, the domain space will match AD and AzureAD.

    The article describes about onboarding a device to MEM/Intune and have policies deployed via Intune for an On-Prem environment.

    1. The main idea behind this is to manage/deploy policy to the device over any network without requiring the device to be in line of sign with the DC.
    2. It does not compare on-prem and AAD UPN/credentials. Only Azure AD joined devices are signed in to using an organizational Azure AD account, for Hybrid AD join devices users should be signed in with there on-prem credentials.

    Please do let me know if you have any further queries by posting in the comments section.

    @Mountain Pond Thanks for posting in our Q&A.

    It is by design. When a device is both joined to AD and Azure AD, we can't use an Azure AD account to sign in this device. We can only use a domain user or a local user to sign in this device.

    Hope it will clarify something.
