- Check the device’s connectivity: Make sure the device has a stable internet connection and is able to communicate with Azure AD. You can do this by running a network diagnostic tool or by testing the device’s connectivity to other resources, such as websites or file servers.
- Check the device’s status in Azure AD: Sign in to the Azure portal and go to Azure Active Directory > Devices. Here you can see the status of the device, including whether it is joined to Azure AD and whether it is compliant with any policies that have been set. If the device is not showing up in this list, it may not be properly joined to Azure AD.
- Check the device’s event logs: The event logs on a Windows device can provide valuable information about issues that may be affecting it. You can access the event logs by going to the Control Panel and selecting “View event logs” under the System and Security category. Look for error messages that may indicate the cause of the issue.
- Use troubleshooting tools: There are several tools available that can help you troubleshoot issues with Windows devices, such as the Microsoft Support and Recovery Assistant (SaRA) and the Microsoft Support and Recovery Assistant for Office 365 (SaRA for Office 365). These tools can help you diagnose and fix common issues with Azure AD-joined devices.
- Contact Microsoft Support: If you are unable to resolve the issue on your own, you can contact Microsoft Support for assistance. Microsoft has a team of experts who can help you troubleshoot issues with Azure AD-joined devices.
