Hi,

 

is there a way too use Windows Virtual Desktop Environment with an existing on Premise AD, already syncing to Azure AD? What is the best way and fastest solution to connect WvD Azure vnet to the on Premise existing AD?

@adipatti It's been a best practice (in general; not WVD-specific) to add another domain controller in the Azure environment. To do that (or at least answer your direct question below), you would need to configure a site-to-site VPN between the on-premise environment with the AD is and the Azure virtual network where your Azure resources (like WVD's session hosts) are.
