Extend local Microsoft Active Directory domain to Azure (VM) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all

    First sorry for the question, I am sure that this subject must have been addressed many times, but I did not find an explanation that would make me understand..

    I need to extend my local domain (Active Directory on- premise) to an instance in Azure (VM).

    Can I simply replicate the objects from the local AD to a cloud AD (VM), through a site-to-site VPN between locations?

    That is, I want to keep the same domain, same forest, etc., just add a new domain controller to the existing domain, as I would if I were working only in an on-premise environment. I know all the process of adding domain controllers in a domain, promoting it to master, and everything else.  My doubt is that both will be in different locations and different networks as well, so I don't know if there is anything different to be done.

    ps: Windows Server 2016

    tks all!
