    Hi folks,

    We have shipped a public preview of integration with AAD DS: https://azure.microsoft.com/blog/azure-active-directory-integration-for-smb-access-now-in-public-preview/

    What we have in preview is a first step along a much larger roadmap for integration with AAD/AD for authentication and authorization. As the blog post says, this initial preview is really about Windows cloud VM access to the Azure file share with an AAD identity. Future refreshes to this feature will add non-Windows (Linux, macOS, etc) support, and the ability to mount the Azure file shares on-premises with your AAD identity. You can learn more about this in our Ignite session as well (at around 22:00): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GMzh2M66E9o

    We’ll keep you updated on our progress. In the meantime, don’t hesitate to continue posting feedback on this feature below.

    Thanks,

    Will Gries
    Program Manager, Azure Files

    Hey Folks,

    We have made some great progress on this idea and most of our services today do support move resources across groups.

    We are still working towards 100% support and while we do that it would be great if you can help us prioritize the missing services.

    Please file individual asks on each service category present in uservoice and vote for it.

    Thanks,
    Azure Portal Team

    Folks,

    Thanks for the questions and suggestions. And apologies for not sharing any update on this thread for so long. We’ve been working on this problem and have announced changes on our official team blog (see here: https://cloudblogs.microsoft.com/enterprisemobility/2016/09/15/cleaning-up-the-azure-ad-and-microsoft-account-overlap/).

    First, we are acutely aware of the UX pain this is causing and we are sorry for this. We are trying to undo a decade and a half of systems divergence. There are literally hundreds of different engineering teams across Microsoft involved in this effort. So this is taking time.

    Second, we can’t easily “merge” two accounts, or allow IT to “take over” personal Microsoft accounts. There are two main hurdles: (1) The terms of service are fundamentally different for the two account types and (2) they are based on different technologies with different stacks (different identifiers, SDKs, token formats, etc.). We’re working to converge the two stacks but again this…

    Hi Ariel, see me question above. I have a whole structure (MSDN sub, One Drive, phone, a couple of computers and so on) associated with my MS account carol@mydomain.com. Now I have added mydomain.com to Azure AD and need to change the association to the Azure synced account.
    Because the MS/Live account was used to set up the Azure AD I can't evne get the Azure account to have the correct name carol@mydomain.ch, it is still called carol@carolmydomain996@onmicrosft.com)

    I really need a "merge my old MS/Live account that used my domain email address with my newly created Azure/Office365 org account which has the same name" preferably automatic, or at leaset a wizard, but a documented procedure would do.

    Could not agree more. I've had a Microsoft account carol@mydomain.com for 20 odd years. All my devices and MSDN subscription and OneDrive and Phone are associated with this account.

    I am now in the process of syncing my on-premise domain with Azure, the Azure / MSDN subscription "belongs" to the Microsoft account, and there seems to be no path to move the subscription to the Azure AD account. which I would like to have the same UPN.

    Even if it were necessary to move through and intermediate account, with a different name (as is now possible in MSDN where the subscription owner can be changed) that would be acceptable.

    In need of a method to collect all my carol@mydomain.com stuff somewhere.
