Access Denied in Event Viewer Remote Connection in azure joined devices

Raghuram Chandrasekaran 5 Reputation points

In the on-premise AD Joined machine's Event viewer, Connect to another computer worked with the AD Credentials. But in Azure Joined machines, Connecting with Entra ID Credentials results in Azure denied. Any idea why it results like that? Is there any difference in the authentication? I would like to know what I am doing wrong.

Two machines that I'm trying to establish a connection to are also Azure Joined with Windows 11 pro. I tried all username formats in Entra, but it resulted in an unknown username, Creating Windows Event ID 4625. The Entra user I'm trying to perform this operation has global admin permission in Entra and is a member of local Event Log Readers.

The username format that I used

  • azuread\
  • azuread\username
  • username
  • domain\username.

Help on this matter would be very useful!
