ADConnect Users that do not exist in AD are synchronized

Hello everybody,

I have a very strange problem.

We have an environment with Adsync and Password Write Back activated already an anointing for some time.

We noticed a situation with 2 users.

These users no longer exist in our AD, but they appear as synchronized in AAD / Office 365.

I already delete these users manually in AAD and after a while they appear again as synchronized

I surrounded the command below and really users are synchronized, but as I mentioned users do not exist in AD.

What could be happening, has anyone been through this situation?

Get-AzureADUser -All $true | Where {$_.DirSyncEnabled -eq $true} | Select -Property DisplayName,UserPrincipalName ,DirSyncEnabled,LastDirSyncTime

Best regards,

    Consider opening a ticket with Azure support and ask them to remove those orphaned objects.
