We are investigating how to take B2B into use with our clients. Many of our clients are smaller companies who don't have AAD in use or even IT-know-how what it is. Now if we invite some client users as Guests to the MS Teams for example, then viral un-managed AAD would be spinned off (if they don't have AAD).
I would like to know has anyoney communicated this with your client org's and their IT departments and what is the general response if you go to them saying "we will invite your users to our system and it will generate un-managed user directory to MS cloud with your domain name. You can then take over it if you want but it will on you"?
Is there any way to check if the user still works (user ID enabled) with our client if the AAD stays un-managed?

In current release of Azure AD B2B, concept of "unmanaged tenant" you saw previously, doesn't exist anymore.

I tested this again, and when user has no Microsoft account or Azure AD account, clicking "getting started" on invite e-mail redirects you to "sign up with Microsoft" page, and let's you create a new account. I assumed it meant "Microsoft account", but no it doesnt. Microsoft should be more clear about this. Also on documentation side, as they was when they initially released Azure AD B2B preview maybe two years ago. Now when you look under "integrate parners using Azure AD B2B" topic on MS documentation, you don't find much information about this scenario if none.
Sorry I can't answer your original question. I'm also interested to hear how this is communicated to clients.
