    We’re currently working on this capability and will provide an update when it’s done.

    However, instead of expanding the “Additional Local administrators” setting, we will support adding AAD groups to Windows 10 local groups (.e.g Administrators, Remote Desktop Users) via MDM policy and elevate user privileges on logon. This will provide greater flexibility to assign different groups to different devices

    Try this one on for size. It might just be good enough for now ...

    If you want a user to be local admin on a machine, this can be accomplished through intune powershell extensions quite easily, even with checks agains an AAD group. Hit me up on twitter is this is something I should blog about, and please specify some scenario that I should target. @michael_mardahl

    I do not see Microsoft pushing anyone to use ReFS on their servers, unless the application storing the data on the ReFS disk fits into a very narrow category.

    ReFS is great for Backup solutions that support storing data on ReFS, HyperV disks and some types of databases.

    For just storing files its not going to give you much bang for your buck, except maybe some resilliency if you have it on properly configured storage spaces.

    Putting Azure Backup into this picture, you could use Azure backup inside a VM that has it's vhd on a ReFS storage system. and not use it for souring files directly of the ReFS system.

    Azure Backup is not really a complete backup solution, it's not much unlike the built-in backup tool of windows server, but even more limited - I don't expect this to change anytime in the near future.

    There are plenty of other solution to get your files into Azure Storage if you feel you must have the "raw" data on ReFS.
