Microsoft has released a new feature in Intune called “Intune Connector for Active Directory” which currently is a preview release feature. This feature is used to join devices to the on-premise Active Directory domain (using ODJ – Offline Domain Join) and the Azure AD tenant within Intune, during Autopilot device enrollment. This creates a Hybrid domain joined scenario for client devices to process local group policy and be managed by Intune. This is particularly useful as many customers have on-premise services such as, group policy, mapped network drives and printers that must authenticate from the local AD domain controllers. While testing this feature in my lab and working with a customer, I have seen “Server Error Code 80180005” or “Error code 80070774” on client devices. It turns out in my experience, this error was occurring because the computer name prefix was incorrectly configured.[Read more…] about Intune Hybrid Domain Join Error 80180005
For IT professionals using SCCM or MDT for Windows 10 / Server OS deployment, you may experience failures during the domain join process of your task sequence. Typically, the computer account fails to join the OU because the OU(s) don’t have the correct join account permissions set. Often, when working with customers I see that their Active Directory domain join service account permissions are incorrectly configured. In some cases, customers are using a DOMAIN ADMIN account which is a bad security best practice.[Read more…] about Correct Domain Join Account Permissions – SCCM / MDT OS Deployment
Most people are already familiar with the well know website list of Microsoft Azure management URLs. Microsoft has additional, Azure standalone Management websites for items such as “Preview” and “Intune Only”.
So, I thought it would be good to share these additional newly discovered website URLs. The list of Microsoft Azure Management URLs come in handy when you want to view a subset of information without other clutter. This should make life easier when you want to look at Azure cloud management services and avoid building a custom Dashboard in the Azure Portal.[Read more…] about List of Microsoft Azure Management URLs
