Intune AAD join device

Occasional Contributor

For Intune, is it required that devices be joined in AAD domain or could we leave our devices joined in our AD domain and then set up hybrid Azure AD as described here?

Yes. You can setup auto mdm registration see this article.

But you can join the machine in hybrid config to have intune manage it.

Do you know if you could use the autopilot feature in Intune if you have hybrid setup?

Hi Colton,


You cannot use AutoPilot in combination with a hybrid setup. When using AutoPilot your device will be automatically joined to Azure AD and if configured to Intune. From Intune it isn't possible to join your device to your local AD.


Best regards,

Is the only feature you lose through a hybrid setup AutoPilot?
