This article intended to give basic walkthrough on how to set up an Azure Active Directory instance and demonstrate some simple example of what you can do with it once it has been set up – sort of AAD “show and tell”. I believe a lot of people prefer hands on approach, where you trying to use technology right off the bat, throwing glances at documentation as necessary. This blogpost can be a good starting point for such type of learning journey.

Local Administrator Password Solution - Logo

Microsoft is offering the Local Administrator Password Solution (LAPS) that provides a solution to the issue of using a common local account with an identical password on every computer in a domain. LAPS resolves this issue by setting a different, random password for the common local administrator account on every computer in the domain. Domain administrators using the solution can determine which users, such as helpdesk administrators, are authorized to read passwords.

LAPS allows you to manage local administrator account passwords on domain-joined computers so that passwords are unique on each managed computer, randomly generated, and centrally stored in Active Directory infrastructure.
