You need to create the users on onprem AD they will then get synced to Azure AD via connect. If you create users on Azure AD, they will remain on Azure AD only mastered by Azure AD.

To join a device to Azure AD you need to use the credentials of a global administrator.


Hi, so when in Azure, looking Azure Active Directory, what are you seeing under Azure AD Connect? Are you showing any issue?  Has Azure AD Connect been installed on-prem? If so, what issue does it show?
