Hi All

 

Apologies if it has been asked before.

 

Anyway is it possible and supported to configure Hybrid Azure AD Join / Automatic Device Registration via GPO on Server 2012 R2?

 

On Server 2016 there is Computer Configuration > Admin Templates > Windows Components > Device Registration > Register domain joined computers as device = Enabled

 

However on Server 2012 R2 GPMC the following does NOT exist:

 

Device Registration > Register domain joined computers as device = Enabled

 

What does exist is:

 

Computer Configuration > Admin Templates > Windows Components > Workplace Join > Automatically workplace join client computers

 

Will this setting work on Windows 10 devices  / Hybrid Azure AD Join?

 

Or do the servers with GPMC / domain functional level need to be upgraded to Server 2016?

 

Info greatly appreciated

The workplace join task on windows 10 machines is enabled the moment you domain join the machine.
Even if GPO is not created, This gpo which you are refering is use to plan scoped deployment of Hybrid Azure AD Join.
