I'm just testing this solution out and trying to control costs.  Do I have to have a Domain Controller or Azure AD Domain Services to use Windows Virtual Desktop with Windows 10 multi-host?

Hi @AjantiDaggar ,


You are correct, you need a Windows Server Active Directory in sync with Azure Active Directory. This can be enabled through:

  • An Azure VM in your VNET, with the Windows AD role & Azure AD Connect
  • Azure AD Domain Services

So it is important, during the deployment, that you select a VNET that has either one of these options enabled in it so the SessionHosts (WVD hosts) can join that domain.


Hope this helps
