Joining thick clients to Azure Active Directory Domain Services controlled domain

Can I use Active Directory Domain Services to replace on-prem Domain Controller?

How would I join on-prem (thick clients) to Azure AD DS?

    Hi @Don Collier ,

    there are some differences between Azure ADDS and self-managed ADs you should think about:

    If you have deployed the Azure ADDS you are able to join the domain with your on-premises clients.
    Just make sure the DNS is working properly and you routing and network connections are working.
