As alternate way to configure SCP is to download the ConfigureSCP.ps1 powershell script. However use this script when you don’t have an enterprise admin creds.

Check if Windows 10 Device is Azure AD Joined

In the above step, the Hybrid Azure AD join configuration was successful. Now it’s time to see if your Winodws 10 device is hybrid joined to Azure AD or not.

Using the below command to find out if the device is Azure AD joined or not.

dsregcmd /status

After running the above command, under Device State, check the AzureADJoined. Currently it shows NO.

The best part here is Windows 10 devices are hybrid joined automatically. You have to wait for at least 5-30 minutes or more to see the result.

In my case, it took around 25 minutes to see the results. You may reboot the Windows 10 device if you don’t see any change in the device status.
