Scenario

1. using ADD connect

2. employee resigned

3. account in AD was deleted

4. employees was rehired after 15 days

5. user was re-provisioned in AD and assigned license in office 365

 

 

Will users data be restored or still available after re-provisioning license?

 

thanks

Yes, since the user has been "soft-deleted" and you have recovered him/her in less than 30 days

Hi Marvin,

 

@Juan Carlos González Martín is correct, but for your case the best practice is to disable the account on AD and do not delete to avoid different ID's on sync.

That all depends if you have on-prem Hybrid Exchange server, then it's probably going to be a bit more difficult.

OneDrive should restore, only way to know is create the account, let it sync and check it. If it doesn't it's because it reconizes that account is a different ID, but I think it only goes by UPN so it should just show back up automatically when you assign the license.

Your probably going to have to do some On-prem magic for e-mail ahead of time by making the user a mail user, with smtp / routing addresses as the other users so when it spins up exchange online, on-prem knows to route there.

Yes, if it match the id of the user.

 

Remember, the best practice is to disable the user, not deleted to avoid issues of restore data.

As long as you undelete the user in AD you will be ok. You have enabled AD Recycle Bin haven't you?

When the user is RESTORED it keeps the same immutable ID/source anchor value (objectGuid or ms-ds-consistencyguid attribute value). This means when the restored user is synced back to the cloud ALL data is restored (up to restores within 30 days).

When the user is CREATED NEW AGAIN it gets a new immutable ID/source anchor value (objectGuid or ms-ds-consistencyguid attribute value). This means when the user is a new user and no data is restored (mailbox might if primary email matches, but there are conditions here that.you best want to avoid)
