Setup a SyncTest Directory in active directory for confirming the AD Cloud Sync was going to work

Jim Hutto 0 Reputation points

I recently moved from AD Connect to Azure Cloud Sync. Part of the testing was setting up a folder in active directory and adding a user. Then add the folder to Azure Scoping filter. Then I sync. It worked.

Now I need to remove the folder. Not sure which to delete first.

Azure Scoping filter line with the directory

Or Just delete it in Active Directory first and let it sync and the remove the scoping filter.

    Thank you for posting your question in Microsoft Q&A.

    It depends on if you want to keep the synced user in Azure AD or not.

    If you want to keep the synced user then you can delete the Active directory.

    If you want to delete the user to Azure AD then you can remove the OU out of synced scope and then run sync cycle. Post that you can uninstall AD connect and then delete the Active directory.

    Let me know if you have any further questions.
