Subject: Local workgroup to Azure AD

I have 300 distributed machines around the world that I inherited in a workgroup. Now the company wants centralized mgmt and log in files. Azure AD was a natural choice for this. I am trying to figure out how or if its even possible to use ProfWiz to migrate the local profile data to the new Azure AD profile. I will have an MDM deployed as well, InTune so I can push out the software after the fact. I am looking at the corp license of ProfWiz. Any direction will be greatly appreciated.

It is certainly possible to migrate a local account profile to an Azure AD account. Please see Migrating to an Azure AD Account on page 38 of the - User Guide

Thank yo for the reply. I read that section after you pointed that out. However what about scriptiing it post Azure AD join and me pushing down ProWiz using an MDM?

Bumping this to see if anyone has an answer on how to script connecting someone to Azure Active Directory.

Found this in a reddit, might be of use:

You can create a Windows Provisioning package with your Azure AD details - you can then run:

Add-ProvisioningPackage -Path "MyAzureADJoinPAckage.ppkg" -ForceInstall

We used this with MDT to automatically join computers to Azure AD

How to make a provisioning package:
