Migrate GPO to Intune and do Hybrid Azure AD join

Testa 531 Reputation points


My client uses only GPO with AD joined. They would like to do Hybrid AAD join and register all the devices to Intune Automatically. They also want to migrate GPO to Intune as well. My questions:

1, They should do Hybrid AAD join first or it does not matter?

2, The documents below for the steps to set up Hybrid AAD join are correct? Is there anything we should be careful?


3, To register devices to Intune automatically, the steps ("select Windows Enrollment > Automatic Enrollment. In the configuration, you set the MDM user scope and MAM user scope:...") can be used, right? We do not need to use group policy?


4, As for migration of GPO to Intune, what steps should we take if the GPO language is not in English (I believe it only support in English right now)?

    @Testa Thanks for posting in our Q&A. I will answer your questions:

    1.Yes. We should do Hybrid AAD join first.

    2.You can refer to this article.

    3.It is needed to configure automatic enrollment. If you want to enroll devices using group policy, we still need to use group policy to do enrollment.

    4.Currently, there is no method can make it. It is suggested to try to manually deploy configuration profiles that the settings are same as the related GPO.


    Hope it will give you some ideas.
