Hello Everyone,

If i enable device write-back and delete "Hybrid Azure AD joined" device from Azure AD, does it remove the device from On-Prem AD also.

No, devices that have the status Hybrid Azure AD Joined will not be written back, as these devices originated from Active Directory in the first place.

Device writeback helps you to keep a track of devices registered with Azure AD in AD. You will have the device objects in the container "Registered Devices"

So any other option to delete "Hybrid Azure AD joined" device from AD if i delete the hostname from Azure AD ? Dont want to do it from On-prem AD
if you deleted the hybrid Azure AD Joined device from Azure AD, the device will be synced again from AD. to delete the device from AAD you need to move the device in AD to an OU not synced to Azure
