Activate Azure Enterprise Subscription

Hi, here is a quick walkthrough of how to activate your top level Azure Enterprise Subscription Account on

This is where you define your organization, departments and organizational structure down to the individual faculty level.

NOTE: You do this before you log into .

NOTE 2: DO NOT add student and teachers here. This is for administration, IT and some researchers. You add teachers and students later in

  1. Find your activation email and copy or click the link (if you click it, make sure you are not logged into any other account.) azure welcome email
  2. Use your OFFICE 365/AZURE AD ACCOUNT for your enterprise. Do not use a Microsoft account such as
  3. Verify that you are using your correct workplace account to login to the service.
  4. Verify that again. I am serious. Make sure you are using the right account. If you are unsure, stop what you are doing and email me
  5. Your EA subscription is now linked to your workplace account. You are done.

Now you should add extra administrators. Click on Manage and “Enrollment” and add minimum 2 named admins.


Now, look at your organizational structure and start to add Departments. Remember to add administrators to each department.

AddDepartment (1)


Once you have set up your departments and accounts you may add additional subscriptions. Remember that services that run on different subscriptions do not talk to each other. Click Subscriptions and add extra subscriptions. You may create as many as you would like.



As you have multiple subscriptions with the same name, it is smart to change the name of each subscription. you do that in the click on “Subscriptions” then select the subscription you would like to rename and click “Rename


Finally it is time to add users or co-editors to your subscriptions. This can be students or teachers that only need access to this subscription for teaching or learning reasons.

Observe the insight and control you have over the information, and at a moments notice you can withdraw access to the document.

Azure Active Directory and Roaming Profiles

In Windows 10 you can join a machine to Azure AD instead of a local domain.


When you join Azure AD your account is given administrator privileges automatically. If you switch users by Ctrl+Alt+Del and Switch user, that user is set as a Standard user.


If you do not know who will use the computer, only the first user will be administrator, the rest will be standard users and can not install programs.


This action is default and can not be changed. Simply giving machines out to students will result in the first users becoming administrators. If you boot all machines before deployment and log in with your user, that user will be blocked after about 20 devices.



How to fix this? Take a look at this post:
