Support Azure AD domain join for Windows Server 2016
Microsoft should strongly consider implementing support for Azure AD join in future builds of Windows Server 2016. I how a couple of customers that have nearly finished the transition to all cloud and is left with a couple of servers due to legacy software. They are currently left with the option to deploy Azure AD Domain Services for supporting a couple (2-5) servers.

This should be part of 2019 server, be much easier for file authentication. Rather than running active directory locally or on premise.. if it works for wi. 10 then why not...

It is possible to join Windows Server VMs in Azure to Azure AD DS by following...
Use a template to join a Windows Server VM to Azure AD DS | Microsoft Docs
This should be possible with on premises physical and virtual Windows Server computers as well.

There is a definite need for AAD Joined servers to leverage Modern Auth capabilities instead of Legacy auth protocols offered in AADDS.

This is a must-have as more and more of our infrastructure moves to cloud-only.

We log in to on-prem win10 workstations with AAD accounts.
And plan to deploy a few Windows 2016 servers in Azure.
Surely you cant mean that we cannot login there with the same users?
Robert Kingston commented
I also strongly support this. It would be a great feature to have.
Nicola Farina commented
Absolutely agree, would be a great feature!
Tomasz Lupert commented
Currently it is higly recommended to add this feature.
Tor Sommernes commented
I support the proposal. We have customers who are reluctant to move to the cloud, just for the same reason.

Much needed feature, we need users to login on on-premise Windows 2016 servers via RDP using their office365 organizational accounts, but this is only currently possible on Windows 10!
