Remove entry ("old" appended to domain name)

Copper Contributor



I have recently signed up for Azure with my new business domain. Before this, the domain was added and verified under a different Azure account. It has since been removed though.


However, now when I log in with my account and click on the profile icon in the top right, it displays "". Also. when I navigate to MS Entra in the overview page, the name is also instead of just So for some reason it appended "old" to the domain name.



in MS Entra > Settings > Domain Names | The domain name is correct but the onmicrosoft domain looks strange, it is and is set as primary. When trying to make the actual domain my primary domain, I get the error message "Unable to make domain name '' primary of"

Why is that and how can I change this?
