  1. Hello Prajwal,

    Is it possible to enroll existing windows devices into Intune?
    the users already logged in their AZ accounts and we recently decided to have MDM/intune in place, how can we manage to enroll these devices without any disruption to users?
    do we need to remove users from AZ AD and add them again?

    thanks

    • I’m also interested in this option. We have existing devices in our organization that are not domain-joined or Azure domain connected but would like to get them added to Intune/Endpoint Manager. Since I do not have their credentials (MFA adds another level of difficulty to this anyways), do you know of a way to add these devices other than walking the user through it?

      • I too would be interested in this we have hybrid joined that are already visible in azure but not in devices i want to add them in in a staged way rather then big bang….ideally using an AD group.
