Hi, and welcome to this lesson about Configuring and Managing Azure AD Device Join. My name is Hallam Webber, and I'm an Azure instructor with 25-plus years of experience in the IT industry, and since 2014 I've focused on Microsoft Azure and related technologies.
This lesson is intended for students who want to learn how to join devices to and remove devices from Azure AD, as well as certain aspects of device management. The information presented in this lesson will be helpful to students preparing for the SC-300: Microsoft Identity and Access Administrator exam.
We start by looking at the difference between Azure AD joined and registered devices. Followed by a whirlwind tour of Windows installation methods, which gives us context for joining scenarios and has subtle implications for the limited device management available in Azure AD. Microsoft Intune and Azure AD are closely integrated, so the line between the two can appear a little blurry in terms of device management, but we’ll keep it Azure AD focused.
To get the most out of this lesson, you should have had some exposure to Azure Active Directory and Windows OS installation. The topics discussed here only apply to Windows 10 and 11. We will be using PowerShell cmdlets.
