Azure AD still shows old users and contacts

Hello,

We are moving to M365 and have been using ADConnect to sync the on-prem AD to Azure AD (AAD). We are seeing all the users/groups/contacts being synchronized in AAD, however, we also notice that older accounts that have been removed from on-prem AD are not getting removed from AAD. Is there a way to fix this? Is there a way to do a full sync where on-prem AD can fully overwrite AAD? Any help or advice will be appreciated.

Thank you,
Sau

You can force a full sync as detailed here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/hybrid/how-to-connect-sync-feature-scheduler#full-sync-cycle
Note this will not affect any objects created directly in Azure AD, or objects that have been orphaned. You'll need to remove such manually, if needed.

Thank you. Just to confirm, this will however update/remove entries on AAD that were synched from AD right?

Yes, unless they are orphaned.
