Revise licensing requirements for initial registered agents
The current licensing system requires 25 AAD Premium licenses for each additional registered agent beyond the first (i.e. 26 licenses for 2 agents, 51 licenses for 3 agents, etc ...). That's a shame as it makes it impossible for smaller businesses to get even close to full coverage of their relevant infrastructure.
For example, assume a best practices infrastructure with:
- 2 x Domain Controllers
- 2 x AD Federation Servers (installed on DCs)
- 1 x AAD Connect server
- 1 x AD FS Web Application Proxy (on AAD Connect server)
That's 3 Windows servers with two DCs & ADFS servers per best practice, yet would require 126 AAD Premium licenses to cover. I see a lot of SMB infrastructure with this basic design and an investment in Azure but they can't get the full benefit of AAD Connect Health because they are well short of the AAD Premium license count.
