(Solved) Office 365 : Uniqueness constraint violation

This week I had a migration from local to Office 365.
This tenant was earlier used for testing purposes, all users are synced with AADConnect to the tenant. When I tried to add a license to this user, I received an error, I’ve never seen before; “Uniqueness constraint violation”.


Error while adding license to a User:

Error : Uniqueness constraint violation

This is the error : Uniqueness constraint violation




Go to the Exchange admin Center, and remove the present contact with the same email address, and try to add the license again.

There is also a posibility the contact is also sync, so check this also in your local AD.

The licenses can be added now.

    Thanks for the solution. I found a duplicate entry in the contacts. After I deleted the same, I was able to assign license to the mailbox… cheers

    when I try to delete it says the following error occurred during validation in agent “Windows Liveid Agent”; Unable to perform the save operation ‘user’ is not within a valid server write scope.
