AD Connect Export Permission Errors

We have setup AD Connect with Password Hash to o365 and see our accounts listed in the o365 Admin portal. When I look at the logs for AD Connect, the Exports are failing because of permissions issues. Originally the onprem account we used was not a domain admin but it did have the Replicate Directory Changes All” and “Replicate Directory Change permissions setup and made sure it applied to all sub objects. This is not work. Even adding the account to the Domain Admin's group did not work. I do see all of the correct permissions on the OU we are trying to sync. Finally, have have made sure replication is working between all DC's. Thoughts...

    @rr-4098 Thank you for posting your question in Microsoft Q&A platform.

    Permission issue can be seen for any writeback attributes in AD connect. If AD connect service account doesn't have writeback permission for any particular attribute, then it will throw permission error on AD connect export for on-premises AD connector. In the error you can click on permission error and you will be able to see different attributes and there changed value if there is any. You will have to find which is the attribute value which is trying to written back to on-premises AD. Depending on the writeback attribute you will have to set the writeback permissions to that particular attribute. You can follow below article to fix the issue that you are facing.
