For an unknown reason SharePoint Online keeps creating the personal website of one of my users with the suffix "1".
What I want to achieve
I want to have the users personal website at:
What I tried
In the SharePoint Admin Center I deleted the user profile for user
i:firstname.lastname@example.org and let SharePoint recreate the profile and personal website by just logging in at https://contoso-my.sharepoint.com. This then redirects to the MyBraryFirstRun page. However, the wizard recreates the personal website with the suffix.
In the SharePoint Admin Center I also tried to remove the suffix from the path to the personal website in the users profile settings. When I then visit https://contoso-my.sharepoint.com the MyBraryFirstRun does not show. Instead I see a read-only version of an empty personal website.
What I think is the problem
I assume there is an orphaned personal website /personal/j_doe_contoso_com thus John Doe's pesonal website is created with a suffix. If I assume correctly, I would need to delete both personal websites and upon visiting https://contoso-my.sharepoint.com, the correct personal website should be created at https://contoso-my.sharepoint.com/personal/j_doe_contoso_com.
What I think is the solution
So I guess what I need to do is to delete both profiles
Where I struggle
The SharePoint Admin Center does not seem to offer that possibility.
The PowerShell does not seem to offer that possibility via cmdlets.
It seems that with the PowerShell I have more power when loading some DLLs or what like so:
[System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("Microsoft.SharePoint.…") But that exceeds my skills.
I hope to find some help on the matter.
