Windows Server in Azure

New Contributor

Hello, I have a request to create a Windows Server 2022 VM in Azure cloud with Active Directory configuration, to act as Domain Controller. They want to join their local PCs to this domain controller. How do I go about that? Do you just do the normal Azure AD Join with your work/school account or do you actually need to treat this as a local AD and do the classic domain join (which I assume needs a VPN connection?). 


Thank you for your help!

Can further elaborate your plan on AD, sync by AD Connect?

@Kidd_lp hello, sorry, I forgot to mention. Yes, after deployment and user/group creation, will sync resources to AAD with AAD Connect.
