Error when you try to use the New-MSOLDomain cmdlet to add a subdomain to an existing domain: "New-MsolDomain: Unable to add this domain"

PROBLEM

You try to add a subdomain to an existing domain in a Microsoft cloud service such as Office 365, Microsoft Intune, or Microsoft Azure by using the New-MSOLDomain cmdlet. However, you receive the following error message:
New-MsolDomain: Unable to add this domain. It is a subdomain and its authentication type is different from the authentication type of the root domain.

CAUSE

This issue occurs if you try to use the New-MSOLDomain cmdlet to add a subdomain to an existing domain that's set up for federated authentication. The New-MSOLDomain cmdlet tries to add the subdomain as a standard authentication domain.

SOLUTION

To add a subdomain to a domain that's set up for federated authentication, follow these steps:
  1. Connect to Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) by using Windows PowerShell. For more info, go to the following Microsoft website:
  2. Use the New-MSOLFederatedDomain cmdlet.

    The syntax to add a subdomain is as follows, where <subdomain> is the name of the subdomain that you want to add:
    New-MSOLFederatedDomain -DomainName:<subdomain>
