When you deploy Windows on a device, these events are logged:
Log Name: Microsoft-Windows-User Device Registration/Admin Source: User Device Registration Event ID: 307 Level: Error Description: Automatic registration failed. Failed to lookup the registration service information from Active Directory. Exit code: Unknown HResult Error code: 0x801c001d. See https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=623042
Log Name: Microsoft-Windows-User Device Registration/Admin Source: Microsoft-Windows-User Device Registration Event ID: 304 Level: Error Description: Automatic registration failed at join phase. Exit code: Unknown HResult Error code: 0x801c001d. Server error:. Debug Output:\r\n undefined.
Here is an example of the event IDs:
These event IDs occur when the infrastructure isn't prepared for Hybrid join. When the device tries to do Hybrid join, the registration fails, and the events are logged.
If the infrastructure is in a non-Hybrid join environment, these event IDs are expected during Windows 10 deployment. They can be ignored.
If you have a Hybrid scenario, see Troubleshooting hybrid Azure Active Directory joined Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016 devices for troubleshooting steps.
