Disassociate from Azure AD logon. RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a number of Office 365 Users who are visible on Microsoft 365 Admin Center.

    They are set up as local users on their respective workstations.

    However, the Microsoft 365 Admin Center administrator has an AzureAD logon on his laptop.

    That user profile seems to be causing trouble accessing local file shares by user/password matching.

    Also, the user profile comes up as a school/company logon which does nothing but confuse and obstruct normal things.

    How can we get rid of the AzureAD school/company logon on this computer - in favor of using a local logon?

    We need to keep the Office 365 connection along with mail, etc for the User?  We don't need to lose anything in the process.

    Good day Fred,

    It is a known issue which raise all the time to people that have multiple accounts

    >> How can we get rid of the AzureAD school/company logon on this computer - in favor of using a local logon?

    Simply clean all the browser cache and cookies. There is no magic here, the reason a person recognize is because the browser stores the information locally.

    Another option instead of cleaning the browser is to use the private mode which all common browsers have. In Chrome it called "incognito mode", in IExplorer it called "InPrivate"
