Removing Inactive Domain Users from Global Address List – Azure AD SYNC

2 Feb

Generally speaking, we can use “Hide from Exchange Address lists” to achieve it.
You can hide the account from the Global Address List in Office 365 by setting the msExchHideFromAddressLists attribute for the object to “true” in their on-premises Active Directory. The prerequisite is that on-premises AD schema is extended for Exchange. You can open the Properties of this accout, and then locate the Attribute Editor tab to check this attribute.

Please refer to this article to see the attributes that are synced from local AD to Windows Azure Active Directory: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/19901.dirsync-list-of-attributes-that-are-synced-by-the-azure-active-directory-sync-tool.aspx

You can see the attribute msExchHideFromAddressLists is listed on the table.
After that, please force DirSync to update the change, and then wait a little time
