Require Azure AD login to Linux VM

Per Austreng 1 Reputation point

Ive configured several Linux hosts as described at and I am able to use the CLI to log in with Azure AD credentials. However, I am still able to log in with local accounts when I am looking to restrict access to Azure AD credentials only.

The document references using "Use Azure deploy and audit policies" for this purpose but I cant figure out how. I opened a support ticket and I've been bounced around to multiple groups and 6 weeks later the ticket is still open with no engineer in site that knows how to do this.

Does anyone have an idea on how to proceed?
