Windows 365 Hybrid AAD Join Health Check PC?

Copper Contributor



We have recently deployed W365 Enterprise in our environment. Upon provisioning our first PC using Hybrid AAD Join we have noticied an additional computer object labelled "CPC-Hth*". Is this something required for the health checks of the service? 
Cannot find informaiton on the MS Docs regarding what this object is used for.



Some one has posed the question on the Github repo for the docs but yet to receive an anwer from MS.
No mention of health check devices · Issue #2714 · MicrosoftDocs/memdocs (

Anybody got any ideas?

Yes, this is a normal behavior;
When a Cloud PC is provisioned, it’s automatically joined to the provided domain. To test the domain join process, a domain computer object is created in the defined Organizational Unit (OU) with a name similar to "CPC-Hth" every time Windows 365 health checks are run.
