"Directory object not found" error when performing an update after a Deprovisioning operation
In Quick Connect or the Active Roles Synchronization Service, when performing an update after a Deprovisioning operation against an Active Roles connection, the update fails with the error Directory object not found
The Active Roles Deprovisioning Policy includes the option to move the the deprovisioned object to different Organizational Unit or container.
This is the result of a Race Condition in Active Directory. The object is being referenced by a Distinguished Name which is no longer valid.
Perform Deprovisioning last, after all desired updates.
