Add an Entra ID Account

Add an Entra ID Account

Nerdio Manager allows you to use Entra ID when creating an account. This also allows you to create Entra ID Joined host pools.

Entra ID-joined VMs remove the need to have line-of-sight from the VM to an on-premises or virtualized Active Directory Domain Controller (DC) or to Entra Domain Services. In some cases, it can remove the need for a DC entirely, simplifying the deployment and management of the environment. This reduces your costs and complexity significantly. Entra ID-joined VMs can also be automatically enrolled in Intune for ease of management.

This is because the VMs are automatically joined to the same Entra ID that the Azure subscription is connected to.

Once you select this option, a warning message displays, as shown in the screen shot above. You are required to select the confirmation. This is because there are a few limitations of Entra ID Joined while it's in preview. See this Microsoft article for known limitations. For example:
