Azure VM Users

JFAzure 0 Reputation points

I am Azure Windows 11 virtual Machine. How do I add different users to it? I would like to add different people that will have a specific access to the Virtual Machine (similar to adding users to a home computer).

Thank you!

    is the VM Azure AD Joined?

    If yes, you can add their Azure AD User accounts to either the "Virtual Machine Login" or "Virtual Machine Administrator Login" IAM role at the Resource Group level where the machine is deployed. However, they will only be allowed to have one user on the VM at any one time.

    If you need multiple concurrent user sessions, you'd need to deploy an Azure Virtual Desktop Host Pool and create your VMs using the "Windows 11 Multi Session" image which would allow for multiple concurrent logins.

    Links below should help you with this:

    Hello there,

    Managed identities for Azure resources provides Azure services with an automatically managed identity in Azure Active Directory. You can use this identity to authenticate to any service that supports Azure AD authentication, without having credentials in your code.

    This article describes how to set up System Center - Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) user roles.

    Hope this resolves your Query !!
