Important!

Please note that only Windows 10 Computers which are not based on Windows Server can be joined to Azure AD. For computers based Windows Server you need to setup an Azure AD Domain Service then join the computer to the domain. See this tutorial for more information.

Note that a number has been added to the domain name to created the identifier. This happens when a directory having the same domain name already exists.

STEP 3

Add Domain User Access to your Cloud Computer

There are multiple ways to add a Domain User Access to a computer:

Directly from the Directories pages, click on the Actions button of the directory, click on Add VM access then select the VM you want to link to this directory. Note that you can add VM access in bulk by selecting multiple VMs.

You can allow all the users of your directory by checking the option include all users from this directory or only a specific user by entering his email and information.

To add multiple specific users just re-do this step.

A flag telling you that the Cloud computer is linked to the Directory will appear.
