Question about Microsoft 365 Business RRS feed

  • Question

  • We're looking into Microsoft 365 Business option and wanted to know if it can be used to manage PCs / Laptops once they're joined to Azure AD. We have created the tenant and added users, applied the Microsoft 365 Business licenses and join a test machine to the Azure AD.

    What we're trying to accomplish is get rid of an on-premise AD and manage identities and device access from Azure AD. Everything on the O365 / Azure AD has been setup, but when we reset a password for one of the users we can still access the PC with the old password. The password change only edits access to the cloud resources (email) but not the local PC. As mentioned before, the PC is joined to the Azure AD and when the user logs for the first time to the Azure AD joined PC the password set in Azure works. We are looking into this with the hope it can do what an on-premise AD can do like reset passwords, lock accounts and prevent access to a domain joined PC. 

    Can this be done with this Microsoft option? Or is there something else that needs to be added like Azure P1, P2 subscription?

    Any information will be appreciated, Thank you!
