What Is WVD?

WVD offers the advantages of BYOD and enterprise mobility for organizations looking to grow quickly without the expense of new infrastructure or devices. It eliminates the hassles of packaging and deploying apps for company-issued devices and makes it easy to scale back as needed. In addition, it is a flexible option for organizations experiencing layoffs or reorganization. It eliminates the need to manage outdated devices that are not compatible with the company’s security policies.

Azure virtual machines must run supported virtual machine OS images

To be able to use the Azure cloud computing service, you must ensure that the virtual machines you create are running supported virtual machine OS images. Typically, these images are the same as those offered by commercial distributors. You can download prebuilt images from the Virtual Machines Image Gallery. However, be aware that the images provided by third-party vendors are not screened for security or compatibility. If you use an unsupported image, you may forfeit your Azure availability SLA.

If you want to use Azure virtual machines for your business, make sure that your machines run supported virtual machine OS images. For example, if you’re using Windows, you should run the Microsoft Edge browser. This browser will have the latest security updates and technical support. In addition, you should use the Azure trusted launch feature to ensure that your virtual machines will launch correctly.

To take advantage of Azure virtual machines, you must be a Microsoft customer. In addition to running Windows server, you can also install and use other Microsoft software on a per-hour or evaluation basis. In some cases, the Microsoft License Mobility program may apply to Azure virtual machines. In other cases, you can also purchase specific versions of server software.

Azure virtual machines must be domain-joined or hybrid AD-joined

Before you can create Azure virtual machines, you must first ensure that your virtual machines are domain-joined or hybrid AD-connected to your domain. This will enable you to create Azure AD joined catalogs. This way, you can create virtual machines that have the same domain identity as your on-premises computers. Once the hybrid Azure AD joined catalog is created, you can assign users and groups to the virtual machines. For this, you must first sync your on-premises AD with Azure AD.

Once you’ve done this, you should enable the Azure AD service on your virtual machines. Then, install the right AAD extension for the new domain. Make sure to reboot the machine after you’ve changed the AAD join settings. If you’ve installed Microsoft Office on your Windows devices, you might notice an effect on the AAD device registration. This is different from the AAD join and is important for the sign-in experience for Microsoft 365 apps.

To ensure that your Azure virtual machines are domain-joined, you can change the settings in the Azure Active Directory portal. You’ll need to make sure that the hybrid Azure AD join settings are enabled. You’ll also need to configure Azure AD’s conditional access policy.

You can use Azure AD to join your virtual machines in a Microsoft Endpoint Manager environment. Just make sure to specify mdmId in the extension settings. Once you’ve done this, you can deploy the extension using the Azure CLI. This will require you to specify parameters such as host pool and AVD.

If your Azure virtual machines must be domain-joine / hybrid AD-joined to your domain, you can set RBAC roles for them. You can assign Azure AD roles to your users, or assign them to other devices such as Macs and iOS devices. This will ensure that your users have the appropriate privileges.

When creating a Windows VM, make sure that you join your Azure AD tenant to your Azure Active Directory domain. This will allow your users to login to the Azure virtual machine using their AD credentials. If not, your users will receive an error stating that their credentials don’t work.

The Azure AD management platform manages users, groups, and credentials. It also supports modern authentication mechanisms such as SAML and OAuth. It’s also possible to connect Azure AD to thousands of SaaS applications. Azure AD does not replace Active Directory, which is still essential for security and user management.

Azure virtual machines must be unblocking URLs

Having your Azure virtual machines unblock URLs is critical for your business’s online presence. However, outbound traffic control is cumbersome and fragile. Organizations that have bureaucracy or strict change control policies are most likely to need it. Instead of enabling outbound traffic control, use a just-in-time (JIT) policy instead. JIT policy is supported by Azure Virtual Machine blade and Azure Security Center.

If you want to block outbound traffic on your Azure virtual machines, you can use a Layer-4 solution like Network Security Groups. With this solution, you can block outbound traffic to a specific location or service tag. This way, you can keep your Azure virtual machines protected from malicious traffic.

While this tool supports unblocking URLs for Azure Virtual Desktop, it does not support unblocking IP ranges. Only certain URLs can be unblocked, and you must configure the firewall to allow communication flow. If you have Next Generation Firewall on your machine, you need to use Azure IP dynamic list to enable unblocking for that particular Azure Virtual Desktop. If you’re using a Next Generation Firewall on your Azure virtual desktop, you must unblock the following URLs to allow your users to connect to your virtual desktop.

If you have a large number of Azure virtual machines, you can assign multiple hosts to each host. This way, you can ensure that your sessions are distributed evenly. You can use depth-first or breadth-first load balancing to ensure a consistent user experience. You can also configure each session host to allow a specific user to access them.
