Joining ONTAP SVM on Azure Active Directory

AlexandreOliveira

Hello, I have a customer planning to migrate his AD to Azure and they would use the Azure AD service (https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/resources/videos/azure-active-directory-overview/).

 

Is it supported by ONTAP? Will they be able to join the CIFS SVM on it?

 

Thanks!

I think the answer is no, Azure AD is a Identity Provider (IDP) not a full directory service.

Microsoft offers Azure Active Directory Domain Services but is a full cloud solution.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory-domain-services/overview#:~:text=Azure%20Active%20Directory%20Domain%20Services%20(AD%20DS)%20....

 

Hope this help.
