    I ran into the same issue but was lucky enough to stumble on the solution, discovered by Dr. Tan on the Programount blog: http://programount.blogspot.com/2018/06/sql-server-2017-installation-errors-on.html.

    The same (or similar) issue existed with SQL Server 2016.

    HTH.

    Folks,

    Thanks for the questions and suggestions. And apologies for not sharing any update on this thread for so long. We’ve been working on this problem and have announced changes on our official team blog (see here: https://cloudblogs.microsoft.com/enterprisemobility/2016/09/15/cleaning-up-the-azure-ad-and-microsoft-account-overlap/).

    First, we are acutely aware of the UX pain this is causing and we are sorry for this. We are trying to undo a decade and a half of systems divergence. There are literally hundreds of different engineering teams across Microsoft involved in this effort. So this is taking time.

    Second, we can’t easily “merge” two accounts, or allow IT to “take over” personal Microsoft accounts. There are two main hurdles: (1) The terms of service are fundamentally different for the two account types and (2) they are based on different technologies with different stacks (different identifiers, SDKs, token formats, etc.). We’re working to converge the two stacks but again this…

    Please permit me a simple question: How do I "discover" which AAD instance has created a work account for me?

    I get the dreaded "It looks like ***@***.com is used with more than one account ..." dialog when signing-in, but we do not have an AAD instance associated with our domain, which means some other domain added my personal account into their AAD system and know I need to figure out how to get me removed.

    IOW ... I cannot follow the "rename personal account" use-case, I just want to leave whatever AAD implementation has hijacked me.

    Thank you.
