MDE extension getting pushed automatically but failing

Copper Contributor

Hi members,


My tenant has Defender for Endpoint already for cloud-native devices and at the same time, I have Defender for Cloud Plan 1 enabled for my Azure VMs (Windows 11). These machines are also reporting on Defender for Endpoint but the MDE extensions keeps failing due to unsupported OS. I did a workaround and turned OFF Endpoint Protection from the Plan 1 and the issue is not occurring anymore.


My question: Should I deploy MDE from Defender for Endpoint for these machines and keep "Endpoint Protection" turned OFF from Defender for Cloud? It seems it is conflicting.
