ADFS: Device registration adventure with GMSA account

I decided to set up a Lab environment for Windows Hello for Business. One of commands required on ADFS server is Initialize-ADDeviceRegistration. Syntax for the command is pretty easy, but all my attempt failed with:


Initialize-ADDeviceRegistration : The specified identity ‘mydomain\myADFSserviceaccount’ could not be found. Some or all identity references could not be translated

Reason: I am using a Managed Account for ADFS, so I need to put “$” at the end of the account name: ‘mydomain\myADFSserviceaccount$’
