We are setting up a greenfield AD DS and related services on Azure Virtual Machines (Windows Server 2019) for a customer and migrating most of the services either to Azure PaaS or hosted from Azure VMs.

One such service that we need to setup is Volume Activation service for Windows Clients (and probably few servers) that are on-prem.

If we enable Active Directory Based Activation (ADBA) via VAMT or Volume Activation Service role, will it interfere with the Azure KMS (kms.core.windows.net) which activates the Azure VMs?

 

Is this a Microsoft supported configuration?
