Join Azure AD won’t work while logged on as the Builtin Administrator

If you ever tried to join Azure AD with your Windows 10 client while you were logged on with the Builtin Administrator account, you have probably noticed it didn’t do anything at all. Clicking on “Join Azure AD” didn’t seem to do a thing.

Join_Azure_AD

That’s because Microsoft disabled the usage of that functionality while logged on as the built-in Administrator. You can verify this is the issue by looking into your Application log with Eventviewer:

Join_Azure_AD_error

Simply log on with another account (Microsoft or local) and retry and you’ll see it works :)
