Binary Tree Directory Sync Pro for Active Directory 20.10.1 - User Guide

Organizational Units

Add your organization units. Click on select OU and browse to your desired OUs. You can add multiple OUs to a single profile, or create a new profile for each, if you want to customized the settings for each OU individually.

Click on an OU to select it. Be sure a check mark appears after each selection. Click again to de-select that OU.

By default, all sub-OUs of any selected OU are also included in the profile. If that's not what you want, then uncheck the box next to it. Then, pick and choose each OU manually.

Notice the number of OUs specifically selected is reflected in the ADD button at the bottom. If you want to start over completely, choose the Refresh button. Click the Add button when you have made all selections.

You can filter the objects included in the profile by double-clicking on the profile. You can select or deselect types of objects by checking or unchecking the boxes. For more granular control, you can edit the filter boxes.

Mail-Enabled and Non-Mail Enabled Users

This page is where you control the characteristics of the objects as they are created in the target.

Options for AD Inter-forest and Intra-Forest Profiles

AS-IS means the objects will be created just as they currently exist in the source. If the account was disabled in Active Directory in the source, it will be disabled in Active Directory when created in the target. If the account was enabled in Active Directory in the source, it will be created as enabled in Active Directory in the target.

You can also choose to Active Directory enable all objects when they are created in the target, no matter their Active Directory account status in the source. Or, just the opposite, you can choose to have all objects created in an account disabled state in the target, no matter their status in the source.

For mail-enabled objects only, there is also the option is to convert all mail-enabled objects into contacts when they are created in the target.

Options for Exchange Inter-forest Profiles

AS-IS means the objects will be created just as they currently exist in the source. If the account was disabled in Active Directory in the source, it will be disabled in Active Directory when created in the target. If the account was enabled in Active Directory in the source, it will be created as enabled in Active Directory in the target.

You can also choose to enable all objects when they are created in the target, no matter their status in the source. Or, just the opposite, you can choose to have all objects created in an account disabled state in the target, no matter their status in the source.

You may also choose to convert all the mail-enabled objects into contacts when they are created in the target.

You would use this profile in conjunction with our Exchange Pro mailbox migration product.

Options for Exchange IntRA-forest Profiles

AS-IS means the objects will be created just as they currently exist in the source. If the account was disabled in Active Directory in the source, it will be disabled in Active Directory when created in the target.

Note that All objects created will be Mail-Disabled, no matter what their Active Directory account status.

User Conflicts

How do you want to handle any users conflicts? That is what should happen if (based on your matching criteria) that Directory Sync Pro for Active Directory finds a matching user already in the target? If you choose skip, Directory Sync Pro for Active Directory will not make an association between those objects, and an error will be noted in the log file.

With Update, Directory Sync Pro for Active Directory will consider those items the same. This means that any changes made to the source will update that matched item in the target, if you have set updates to occur. No new object will be created.

With Rename, a new object will be created in the target. You will need to distinguish this from the matched target object by giving it a new name. You can manually add a prefix or suffix of your choice, or, you choose any existing AD attribute to be prepended or appended to the name. Remember that if you choose rename, when you update the object in the source, it will be the Renamed object in the target that gets updated during a synchronization.

User SID History

You have the option to include an object's SID history during the migration. This will help prevent issues with some software, and network shared printers. We suggest this option. Consider however, that in a large enterprise, this might cause the Kerberos token to exceed the max token size for users that belong to many groups. You could mitigate that issue with a GPO that is set to accept larger tokens.

If you do choose to migrate SID History, all Domain Controllers that you have listed in the Target DC's tab will need access to the Domain Controller that holds the PDC Emulator FSMO role in the source.
