A client of mine had me install AD Connect a few years ago to sync pwds to their new O365 tenant. Now they are asking for it to be removed as they want to enforce a different password on their O365 mailboxes than on their AD accounts. It took a fair bit to get this working properly and I would prefer that I somehow just disable this "semi-permanently" than to uninstall all components.
I know I can stop the sync service but I want to make sure that:
a) it does not somehow start back up on its own (on an upgrade or a reboot etc.)
b) and by just suspending synch, O365 does not start to show all kinds of errors
If I cannot just disable safely, then I need to know how to uninstall in such a way that there are not a lot of errors being thrown in O365. There does not seem to be a document on how to uninstall properly so any suggestions appreciated.
