We have one Windows 2008 server with Exchange 2010 on premises, we will not be moving to the cloud, we purchased 60 license for Office365Pro plus (only desktop applications), my question is as follows:

We have 60 licenses of Windows 2008, 60 for Exchange and 60 for Office 365 Pro plus open (recently acquired), our "problem" is that we have too much rotation on our personal, so we keep making new users on our active directory as well as in our Exchange, we know that each license is for one real user, so it doesn’t matter that we have 100 users in our active directory as long as we only have 60 real users, people that leave the company are not being deleted for backup purposes.

So, making a fusion between Active directory and Office 365 account will tell Microsoft we have 100 users which, but they know we only have 60 license of windows/exchange, off course we only be using 60 license of Office365 Pro plus for the users that we do have on the company.

Will this bring us problems with Microsoft related?
