Hi,Good morning

Looking at ms their faq

"So, user needs to establish connection with the domain controller (either via VPN or being in the corporate network) before they're able to sign in to the device with their new password."

Hi @JE,

I agree with Rudy you always need VPN with Hybrid Join.

I used to be in the same boat but I used password write back from AD Connect to Active Directory, this way helped a lot as the users will be able to change their password from the cloud and write back to Domain Controller which always make them in sync with Active Directory. The user still needs vpn or on prem to refresh the cached password in his/her pc but at least you always have synced passwords.

Hope this helps!
