I'm really stuck so I'm reaching out for a little help.
I am trying to setup Azure AD connect on my AD and O 365 environment, but am having a huge problem. I have existing accounts on office365 and want to match them with AD accounts. I have researched "Soft Matches" and attempted to match the UPN and ProxyAddress or Email to no luck. I just get Dirsync errors saying I have duplicated userprincipale name and duplicate proxy addresses. Isn't the whole point of soft matching is that they should be the same?
I made sure EnableSoftMatchOnUpn was enabled.

Thanks for the quick reply.
The STMP and UPN's are exactly the same. I'm only testing this feature with one account at the moment before I take it organization wide. I deleted all the aliases from the profile while troubleshooting. I checked the event viewer but did not see any events. I deleted my office365 account and ran a sync again and it created a new one and worked correctly, but I already have an organization with established office365 accounts and data and would hate to have to delete all of them just to have to transfer over the data.
I checked the article you sent, and it suggests that I try soft matching which I'm not able to get working. I will try hard matching though, I read you have to manually convert the GUID though so it seems troublesome for an entire organization to be synced.

I'm facing same troubles as you did, I'm in migration preparation to sync local AD with AzureAD.
Could you tell me how you solved the issue ?

I realized that my conflicts in synchronization are caused by user objects in Deleted users. Once I hard delete then synchronization does not detected any other issue and works well since than.
