Do you have Device Writeback enabled on Azure Active Directory Connect? Do you know how to check if a device has been written back?

I have been recently working with a customer and errors within AAD look which pointed to an issue with Device Writeback not being enabled on Azure Active Directory Connect.

But how do you check if the device is writing back? Well, I’m glad you asked. First of all, we need the Device ID which is obtain running a cmd via command prompt.

dsregcmd /status

Once you have this information you will need to run the following command using PowerShell on one of your domain controllers.

$deviceid = “Enter ID here”
Get-ADObject -LDAPFilter “(cn=$deviceid)” -SearchBase = “CN=RegisteredDevices,DC=OfficeC2R,DC=com,”

If you are returned an error i.e Directory Object Not Found. It is safe to say the device hasnt been registered yet.

And its as simple as that
