I am trying to decomission our hybrid on premise S4B and Lync systems. I've followed this guide decommission-remove-on-prem
. When i come to publish the topology i get the following error:

Error: An error occurred: "System.InvalidOperationException" "Central Management store does not match configured Central Management store database."

I can't find anything after googling it and my knowledge of Skype isn't great. Can anyone help with what his error means?

    @Darryl ,

    Which step do you get this error message?

    Please note that the official document in your question applies only if you are using Method 2 for managing user attributes, as described here.

    In addition, before decommissioning on-premises Skype for Business environment, please complete the first three steps:

    Step 1. Move all required users from on-premises to online.

    Step 2. Disable your hybrid configuration.

    Step 3. Move hybrid application endpoints from on-premises to online.
