Re-installing ad sync after a hybrid deployement

Last Modified: 2018-11-30
I would like to know if it is possible to setup ad sync after an exchange hybrid installation. This is the scenario.

I have an office 365 account that was in a hybrid scenario but now is cloud only. Exchange server is decommissioned.

I have experience setting up ad sync after a cut over migration using a method similar to the one shown here:


I can find lots of articles that tell of the problems in decommissioning the last exchange server and keeping ad sync, but none which say you can't stop ad sync and re set it up from scratch. Obviously im not going to just try it. But would like to know if anyone can shed any light what is preventing it.

Its very frustrating to me I cannot keep password sync after implementing the best form of migration.
