Azure AD connect Cloud sync for AVD

Stefanos Armenoglou 21 Reputation points

Hello All,

Can we use the new azure ad connect cloud sync instead of the classic azure ad connect to an azure virtual desktop installation?

I need to sync multiple disconnected forests to an azure ad tenant and implement an azure virtual desktop for different companies.

As far as I know the new cloud sync is my only solution for this kind of identity sync but I do not know If I can use it also to build the azure virtual desktop.

Thank you,

Stefanos Armenoglou
