WVD with Azure AD Domain Services Endpoint Manager

Brass Contributor

I am using WVD in a cloud-only environment. The session hosts are connected to the Azure AD domain services. The Azure AD Domain Services acts as a DC in the domain.

Now I would like to manage my session hosts (Windows 10 multi user) with the Endpoint Manager. How can I get the Session Hosts into the Endpoint Manager?

One consideration is to create an extra server with AD Connect in the Azure AD DS domain. However, I don't find this way so nice.


Thanks for your support

You can't since AADDS doesn't let you Sync Computer Objects to AzureAD. (It's one way from AzureAD to Windows Domain). AADDS is a limiting factor to all kinds of hybrid setups honestly.

The consideration you are making can't work either I believe. An AADDS domain is always a single forest on its own. You can't extend it via other Windows AD servers.
Thank you for your answer.

I was thinking of a member server with AD Connect in AADDS. Is this possible?
Hi Stefan,

That's what I meant with the second part of my response. That's not possible since you cannot add extra AD servers to an AADDS domain.
I don't understand. Why can't I install a member server with AD Connect?

I know that I cannot install another Domain Controller.
Sorry I misunderstood. In any case that won't work because you are not a domain/enterprise admin in the managed aadds domain. So you cannot provide credentials during that part of the AD connect installation.
