Windows Autopilot to enroll hybrid Azure AD-joined error

I came across this issue where joining the on-premise Active Directory failed during Windows Autopilot.

The full error message from the event viewer of the machine where the Intune Connector is installed.

The Intune Connector for your Active Directory creates Microsoft Autopilot-enrolled computers in the on-premises Active Directory domain. The computer that hosts the Intune Connector must have the rights to create the computer objects within the domain.

Microsoft Autopilot error details continued…

Follow the guide to delegate control to the computer account hosting the Intune Connector. It solved the issue in this case, as the rights was misconfigured.

  1. Open Active Directory Users and Computers (DSA.msc).
  2. Right-click the organizational unit to use to create hybrid Azure AD-joined computers > Delegate Control.The Delegate Control command.
  3. In the Delegation of Control wizard, select Next > Add > Object Types.

  7. Select Create a custom task to delegate > Next.
  8. Select Only the following objects in the folder > Computer objects.
