Bringing traditional Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) to the cloud, typically required to set up, secure, and maintain domain controllers (DCs). Azure Active Directory Domain Services (AADDS or Azure AD DS) is a Microsoft-managed solution, providing a subset of traditional AD DS features without the need to self-manage DCs.

One such service that requires AD DS features is Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD). I have successfully deployed WVD with Terraform, but until recently, I struggled to do the same with AADDS. Today, I show you how to deploy AADDS with Terraform.
