Move Azure Directory Domain Servie to on-premise

PakBIT Inc 21 Reputation points

I am currently using Azure Active Directory Domain Services. It is costing too much now. I want to move this domain to on-premise with all users and other objects and remove from cloud. I can't find a way. I do not want to create a new domain and have my computers/users to join new domain.

Microsoft Entra

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

    There are no facilities for LDAP writebacks outside of the managed domain in that virtual network, which means that the changes are NOT written back to the on-prem AD through the AD Connect sync process if you have configured in this case you dont have anyways.

    Only option I can think of is setting up the new domain and migrate the resouces unless you want to check the pricing and work on that, Azure Active Directory Domain Services usage is charged per hour, based on the SKU selected during the deployment process.

    Check the pricing and see if reducing the SKU might help ? active-directory-ds

    Thanks. I have less than 10 users and Azure Domain services is still a lot expensive. I decided to move to JumpCloud. For my needs that works for me.
