Sync Accounts from Azure to On-premise Active Directory & RDS authentication

We currently have all our accounts in Azure and curious if we can sync these accounts to the on-premise domain. We do not have an on-premise domain yet but are considering setting one up for a Terminal Server using Remote Desktop Services. We want to setup the domain locally because I believe it's required for RDS.

We can then have the existing accounts be able to authenticate on the RDS.

1.) Can you sync from Azure to on-premise domain?

2.) Is a domain controller necessary for RDS, and is there a way to bypass a domain, setting up an RDS server, and utilize Azure authentication?

    Hi,

    1. You have to setup first the on prem AD server and sync it to Azure not vice versa.
    2. No, you need an on prem AD server.

    Hopw this helps!
