I cant seem to understand the enrollment process for devices using or office 365 and azure active directory.
Some devices are AD Joining

Some devices are AD registering

Some devices are showing under devices in Office 365 portal.

Some devices are showing as managed by Microsoft Intune.

 There doesn't seem to be any consistency .

I understand the concept of AD join/register, but from a user perspective, how are some joining and registering?

Why do some machines get put into MDM/Intune and not others.

We have also seen where a users profile gets removed from their laptop and a new one created using their work email.

 

Ive tried adding a vm then using the access work and school which resulted in the vm being 'Azure AD registered' and MDM-Intune.
What process put in with Intune? I can't see any settings/policies that are applying to make this happen.

 

User reports that some get a notification in their office apps saying that it cant activate the software, despite them using it for months then eventually it reboots, asks for work email credentials and balsts their machine.

 

Can someone clarify why some machines ad join , some register and some get intune managed? (Eg user adds their work cred specifically , gets ad registered then mdm)
HOw do I stop things getting intune managed?

 

Thanks in advance.
