Hi there,
I have a question regarding GPO in AD hybrid mode (on prem AD & AAD):

Can local domain GPOs apply on my computer if Im not on the local network but outside? Or its impossible with an hybrid mode to receive GPO from the local Active Directory

Thanks for the clarification

    You would have to be connected to your domain controller (via VPN for example) in order to receive the GPOs from your AD environment. The fact that your have an AD hybrid would not help here. Alternatively you could look into using Administrative Templates from Microsoft Endpoint Manager as a means to provide policies directly from the cloud.
