Collaboration Services 3.9.1 - User Guide

Getting started with Collaboration Services Organizing objects for synchronization Resolving synchronization conflicts Managing the synchronization process Transport management Fine-tuning and maintenance Backup, restore, and troubleshooting

Configuring the synchronization process

The main task for Collaboration Services is keeping Active Directory data, calendar, and free/busy information synchronized between all synchronization partners so that users have access to up-to-date information about all objects participating in the collaboration. Use the synchronization settings to:

Right-click the Collaboration Services node in the management tree, and select Properties.

General settings

The General page of the Synchronization node contains common controls for all types of synchronization.

Collections re-scan frequency

The regular scan (which uses Active Directory’s DirSync control) registers the majority of changes made to Active Directory objects. However, some changes cannot be registered by regular means, such as when an OU with collection members is moved to another domain or published objects are deleted.

Thus, a more thorough collections re-scan should be initiated periodically to register these types of changes; use the Scan collection for changes every option to specify how often the detailed re-scan should take place. The default period is 6 hours.

Alerting and notification

In the Notifications section, you can specify what percentage of any quota being filled should trigger notification of a forest administrator. The notification will state that the specified percentage of a quota is filled. The default value is 80%. For more information about quotas, see Synchronization settings for Active Directory objects .
