Hi,
It seemed your question was more related to auto creating user accounts in AAD.

Thus, i've added tag for AAD and kindly wait the experts there to assist further.

Thanks for the patience.

BR,
Jenny

Hello @remoteUser1-3524 ,

RemoteApp services requires a Active Directory Domain Services environment to work if you are trying to deploy it in an on-premise windows server setting. You need a local domain controller where our user's will reside. RemoteApp is a part of Remote Desktop Services server infrastructure does not provide any specific way to auto create the users . You would need to create all the users manually or using some script within the Active Directory domain where you have joined the Remoteapp server.

If you are setting it up on the Azure Cloud , then you can use the Windows virtual desktop host pools to get same kind of remoteApp experience for your users and have users from your Azure Active directory (synced with on-prem AD) use the remote app. Here you have another option to setup Azure AD domain Services and join the WVD hosts to the Azure AD domain services managed domain which will again use the existing users in the Azure AD domain services instance.

All in all users do not get created automatically by the system and you would have to manually create them or automate the task using any script in order to get 30 users created in the backend system supporting RemoteApp infrastructure. I have tried to explain all the possible scenarios as it was not mentioned that what is the backend environment for Remoteapp setup . I have provided some links which are related and would encourage you to go through them. If the information provided is useful , please do accept the same as answer so that it benefits others in the community searching for similar answers. In case you have any additional queries on this , please let us know and we will be happy to help further.

Thank you.

@ShashiShailaj-MSFT it looks that the win 2019 domain controller cannot run Remote Desktop Management service in the domain controller, microsoft doesn't allow it to run in the same machine, right? I am unable to get it work. it always complain remote desktop management service on local computer started and then stopped

@remoteUser1-3524 , There are no such restrictions from product side but we strongly discourage it as per the article. 2799605 . No Its not blocked , you can still install it . I tried it in my lab by creating a windows 2019 domain controller and it worked fine.

It may be possible that you have any group policy which might be causing some blockage. For example User mode redirection of services over the RDP session are blocked by policy on a domain controller. you may see event 36 as below if you enable RD services on a win 2019 domain controller.

Hope this clarifies. I would strongly recommend to segregate the roles of DC and RDS server on two different servers.

@ShashiShailaj-MSFT any suggestions to automate to create 30 users using scripts for ADDS? microsoft said the difference between regular AD and Azure AD is that Azure AD can do the automation of creating users, but I don't see any detailed documentation for doing it.
