Is it possible to have Windows 10 AzureAD joined machines allow different users to login?

Hi there -

I have remote offices all over the world where we're trying to slim down on the footprint but not having local domain controllers or any physical servers. I have AzureAD setup and I can join machines to it remotely over the internet. It seems that when this is joined to AAD the user that registered it is the only one that is allowed to login to it. I had another forum question for this where they suggested we use AzureAD\UPN to login as a different user but that didn't seem to work.

Is this possible? Could I have remote machines that are not joined to an On-Prem DC, that can authenticate different users logging in locally (eg not RDP they're just sitting at a destkop)?

    Hi, not sure I understand the question - all Azure AD users can logon to Azure AD joined machines, it works the same way as if you had local DC.

    As for RDP, you can create a remote session without any issues from AAD machine to AAD machine. Sessions from non-AAD machines are doable but you need to disable Network Level Authentication on the AAD machine.
