Unable to update Cryptopolicy object in Windows Azure Active Directory

We are in the process of moving our email to Office 365 using the Hybrid method.  This has been up and running without any problems for a couple of months now.  Two days ago I had to reboot the server that runs DIRSync and ever since then, every time there is a sync between our Active Directory and Azure we get the following error message.

"Unable to update this object in Windows Azure Active Directory, because the attribute [ProxyAddresses, Mail], is not valid. Update the value in your local directory services."

There are five errors all for a contact named Cryptopolicy.  I have found five different contacts with this name in AD under "Program Data\Microsoft\ADFS\....." so I guess these are the objects in question.  None of them have the ProxyAddresses or Mail attribute set.

Everything appears to be working OK but I am just wondering why for no apparent reason this error has started to appear and more importantly could it be caused by a more serious underlying problem.

many thanks for any information you may be able give on this.

Those should be excluded from dirsync, you have probably made some customization on the default filter rules.

Hi Vasil

You are correct, I added a custom filter, this is obviously what caused the issue.  I have now amended the filter to include the problem contacts and the errors have stopped.  Thank you for  your help.
