  • Hi Tarique A

    From your description, do you mean you want to remove Skype for Business attributes in AD server?

    We recommend you follow the steps the article referred because deleting Skype for Business attributes manually may cause some uncertain problems.

    In my research, if you want to make sure you do not have anything that depends on Skype for Business, you need to disable users with populated Skype/Lync attributes. Because the presence of values in ms RTCSip-DeploymentLocator attribute in the local Active Directory lead to the SfB Online deployment (after Azure AD Sync) to "think" or "interpret" that the users were still hybrid or OnPrem and this prevented to remove the last on-prem servers.

    About the problem during Skype for Business decommission process, please refer to:
