Paths to co-management

There are two primary ways for you to set up co-management. It's important to understand the prerequisites for each path. They each require some combination of Azure Active Directory (Azure AD), Configuration Manager, Microsoft Intune, and Windows 10.

  1. Auto-enroll existing Configuration Manager-managed devices into Intune
  2. Bootstrap the Configuration Manager client with modern provisioning

Path 1: Auto-enroll existing clients

Taking this path can get your existing Configuration Manager-managed devices quickly enrolled into Intune. The management of these devices from Configuration Manager is no different from before you enable co-management. Now you get all the cloud-based benefits. This path is transparent to your users.

Here's what you need to set it up:

Path 2: Bootstrap with modern provisioning

Here's what you need to set it up:

  1. Setup enhanced HTTP
  2. Create the cloud services in Azure
  3. Configure the management point and clients to use the cloud management gateway
  4. Use Intune to deploy the Configuration Manager client
