Integration of AD domain with Azure AD for accounts without licenses attached

We plan to integrate our on-premise AD domain with our existing Azure AD tenant. We have accounts in bought in on-premise AD domain and in Azure AD tenant. The Azure AD has only the subset of accounts in relation to on-premise AD domain. Only some of Azure AD have Microsoft 365 E3 license attached to their account, and some Visual Studio Professional. Some have no license attached to their account.

My question is when we integrate on-premise AD domain with Azure AD, and our on-premise AD accounts are synchronized with AD, what will they be able to do without any license attached to it? Will those account be able to login to domain computers, can we enable MFA for them for domain computers login?

Any addition information about this topic that I did not explicitly asked will be appreciated.

    Hi @Zoran Jankov

    Thank you for asking this question on the **Microsoft Q&A Platform. **

    My question is when we integrate on-premise AD domain with Azure AD, and our on-premise AD accounts are synchronized with AD, what will they be able to do without any license attached to it?

    The Short Answer, yes

    Will those account be able to login to domain computers

    If the accounts exist on your Domain Controller, yes

    can we enable MFA for them for domain computers login?

    If you want to use the Azure AD resources, I think not. If you are already using MFA, it will not affect your methods of authentication.

    Hope this helps,
    Carlos Solís Salazar
