Remove extension properties from sync

Hi,

For testing I added some directory extensions to sync with Azure AD: alt text

After that I started to receive error messages:

 Unable to update this object in Azure Active Directory, because the attribute
 [extension_2241f0b77381486bb25ee28906a52afd_thumbnailPhoto], in the local Directory
 exceeds the maximum allowed length. If you want to update, reduce the length in the
 local directory services, and then try again

I removed those directory extensions from sync. But I still receive error messages. Powershell returns this: alt text

How I can remove those extension properties from sync?

@TomassPetersons Did you run full sync after you removed these extension attributes? Removing extension attributes from sync scope requires a full sync.

Same thing is happening to me, and I performed a full sync after removing the attribute extension. I don't know why it is trying to sync an attribute that does not exist.
