My VM is on-prem running in Hyper-V, so that is of little help...

Yes there is. 

 

The articles linked previously are for Virtual Machines that have been created within Azure. 

 

I have managed to connect a Windows Server 2019 Standard machine, that is running as a VM on my local laptop, to Azure Active Directory.  

It has connected over the internet the same as windows 10 operating systems do. 

 

I can login with my Azure AD Account and manage it fully and apply policies to it. 

 

I would not recommend this. 

 

It involved getting the Microsoft Store Installed, at which point I could then login and associate my Work account to the device. 

I could then install the company portal. 

 

I can provide further details if required.

Hi, 

What do you think about managing the Infra. servers (Windows 2019 DC) hosted in the DMZ via the AD Azure?

Thanks in advance.

Windows Server 2019 Datacentre can be Azure AD domain joined as part of the offering of it's license. 

 

Joining a server to Azure AD does not sound like it will be the correct solution to the issue you currently have. 

 

Do you have a Microsoft Support representative assigned to your company that you can work with, to advise and assist you?
