Machine identities

Each Machine Creation Service (MCS) provisioned machine must have a unique machine identity, also known as computer account. Machine identities can be created and managed in the machines locally or in a directory, such as on-premises Active Directory (AD), Azure AD, or both. Using MCS, you can provision machines as non-domain-joined, on-premises AD joined, Azure AD joined, or hybrid Azure AD joined.

For information about how to configure machine identities in the Full Configuration interface, see Create machine catalogs.

Machine identity types

The following machine identity types are supported.

Machine identity type Description
On-premises AD joined Identities are created and managed in on-premises Active Directory. Provisioned machines are joined to on-premises Active Directory using the assigned machine identities.
Azure AD joined Identities are created and managed in Azure AD. Provisioned machines are joined to Azure AD using the assigned machine identities.
Hybrid Azure AD joined Identities are created in on-premises Active Directory and are synced with Azure AD through Azure AD Connect. Provisioned machines are joined to on-premises Active Directory and Azure AD. The machines are then Hybrid Azure AD joined.
Non-domain-joined Identities are created and managed in the machines locally.
