Azure AD Application Proxy, Single Sign-On and Conditional Access

Introduction

As the topic suggests, the following post will be about the Azure AD Application Proxy feature – a feature within Azure Active Directory. I haven’t blogged specifically about this feature before, but I do think it deserves a mention here as well.

I will go into details on how to provide secure remote access to an internal IIS website, and give an example on how to add single sign-on to that experience while protecting everything with Conditional Access.

This post will be followed up with a continuation, where everything will be put to use on a mobile device with a Microsoft Intune managed Edge browser. Curious? Read on and stay tuned 🙂

How to automatically join Windows AutoPilot devices to On-Premises AD (Hybrid Azure AD Join)

Introduction

Good news everyone! The feature was introduced at Ignite earlier this year and now it’s finally here. Windows AutoPilot now allows you to join your Windows 10 v1809 devices to your on-premises Active Directory (Hybrid Azure AD Join). All the magic lies in a new Intune connector for Active Directory. Sounds exciting, right? This will be everything you need to know, on how to get started with this new amazing feature.

Deploy the SCCM Client using Microsoft Intune and the Cloud Management Gateway (CMG without PKI certificates)

Introduction

Last week I blogged about how to get properly started with Windows AutoPilot. This week I’m continuing on the topic, and going into details on how you can deploy the SCCM (System Center Configuration Manager) client as a part of the Windows AutoPilot enrollment and thus achieve Co-management with SCCM and Microsoft Intune.

I have previously blogged a lot about Co-management. Focus here has been enrolling devices already managed by SCCM into Intune MDM.

This post is the opposite. This time we are deploying a device through Windows AutoPilot, enrolling it into Microsoft Intune and then deploying the SCCM client through the Cloud Management Gateway. Sounds interesting? Read on 🙂

How to get properly started with Windows AutoPilot: Everything you initially need to know!

Introduction

It’s time for me to take on a new topic on the blog. I have been experimenting, working and blogging a lot about SCCM, Intune and Co-management, but never really touched base with Windows AutoPilot. Time is due and this will be the first in a series of posts about Windows AutoPilot and how to eventually reach Co-management with SCCM and Microsoft Intune through Windows AutoPilot.

First things first though. This post will give you everything you need to know on how to properly get started with Windows AutoPilot. Curious? Read on 🙂

Summary of SCUG.DK meeting (System Center User Group Denmark) Fall Edition starring David James

Introduction

In line with traditional practice on my blog, I’m kicking off my posts with an introduction – this time is no different.

The topic is something new however, and that’s even though I have been a frequent SCUG.DK attendee the past many years. I don’t dare to make a promise about making this an habit either, but I do think this event in particular deserves a written summary. So here goes my very first of it’s kind; the summary of SCUG.DK Fall Edition starring David James also known as @djammmer on Twitter.

And by the way, I’m not used to doing summaries – so please bare with me if I missed something obvious. I took notes and did a lot of pictures while tweeting live from the event, so there’s a slight chance I missed out on a thing or two. Apologies in advance.

Also, during this event there was a dedicated request to do tweets with the #MMSMOA hashtag for the chance of winning a trip to MMS 2018 Desert Edition, so if browsing Twitter for interesting Tweets, you will find some of them located on both #SCUGDK and #MMSMOA. 🙂

Deploy Outlook for iOS with a Managed Exchange Account using Microsoft Intune

Introduction

More good news! Microsoft Intune now provides us with an even easier way to pre-configure an e-mail account for Outlook on iOS (and android). This is done with the use of an App Configuration Policy and the additions to the configuration designer when configuring the Outlook app. Let’s walk through the process.

Auto MDM Enrollment fails with error code 0x8018002a (Troubleshooting MDM enrollment errors. Co-management with SCCM and Intune)

Introduction

Not going to do a great introduction on this one, but I think it deserves a mention anyway (I couldn’t find the situation or error explained elsewhere). More specifically, this is about an error I encountered myself in a Co-management scenario, where the computer fails the auto enrollment into Intune MDM. Let’s dig in 🙂

Block access to company resources if running an out-of-date iOS version using Microsoft Intune and Conditional Access

Introduction

Do you need a simple, but yet effective way of forcing people into updating iOS on their company enrolled Apple devices? Simply block access to company resources if iOS is not up to date. Here is how you can do that using Microsoft Intune and Conditional Access in Microsoft Azure.

Flipping the switch, part 4: Moving Device Configuration workload to Intune MDM (Co-management with SCCM 1806)

Introduction

Again, continuing the Co-management and flipping the switch journey, and moving the brand new Device Configuration workload to Intune MDM. This is the latest addition to the co-management world introduced in Configuration Manager 1806 (released 2 days ago at time of writing) and it’s absolutely amazing.

This means we finally (almost) can ditch group policies altogether and do our device configurations with Intune MDM. I will give you how to and an excellent example in this post. Read on. 🙂

The highlighted configurations now also work on co-managed computers

5 simple (and perhaps out of the ordinary) advice on how to improve and strengthen your SCCM and Intune knowledge

Introduction

This will be something completely different and new coming from my end. So please be aware; a lot of strong coffee is potentially needed. That be, because I usually talk about how to do something technically around Configuration Manager and Microsoft Intune, or something technically related to those topics, and the typical reader would probably expect content in that context.

This time I’m going beyond that. “Why?” you may ask. Because I felt like giving back with a topic and content that I know that can make a difference. Not just limited to a specific technical topic, but as a whole, make a difference on how one will succeed in general with Configuration Manager and Microsoft Intune (and possibly other stuff too).

I believe in helping and promoting others, and as of such, I will give you 5 (and possibly some unique) advice on how you can improve and strengthen your SCCM and Intune knowledge. (No guarantees though, but the bullets mentioned in this post helped me a lot)
