I have performed many Azure AD joins in the last year. I still have many more to go. Some of these migrations are from Workgroup to Azure and some are from On-prem domain to Azure.

I keep searching the internet for a faster way to complete this. The actual Azure AD Join is easy, but some clients have applications that are profile specific and either need to be re-installed or re-setup.

I miss the old days where Microsoft had there on Profile migration tool. That does not seem to work with Azure. I have found 3rd party utilities that claim to do this but I have downloaded and tested the free version, with no luck.

What is the fasted way to migrate a profile to a newly AAD joined computer?

    If I understand your question correctly, it sounds like you are looking to migrate local profiles to Azure AD joined devices.

    EDIT: USMT is not supported for Azure AD joined devices. There isn't an officially supported way to achieve this, though there are some third party tools that might be able to support this migration. You could potentially use OneDrive and Autopilot as a workaround.
