Synchronization settings for ActiveDirectory objects

The Active Directory object synchronization process is as follows:

Use the Active Directory tab of the Synchronization node to adjust the synchronization settings for Active Directory objects.

General Settings

On the General page, you can set the time intervals for scanning Active Directory for changes and applying the changes received from collaboration partners.

At the time interval specified in the Query AD for changes every field, Collaboration Services checks whether any changes were made to Active Directory objects in your forest.

The sleep interval between the collection update sessions is specified in the Processing collections interval.

At the interval specified in the Update AD every field, Collaboration Services applies incoming updates to Active Directory in the forest.

When an original object is removed from a collection you subscribe to, the deletion is automatically synchronized to the subscribing forests and the corresponding objects are hidden from the Global Address List. However, the stub objects themselves are not deleted immediately. Using the Retention time for removed objects option, you can delay deleting the stubs for a specified number of days; if the object is added to another collection during this period, the stub object will be re-used.

Scheduling access to Active Directory

To avoid excessive load on the DCs during production hours, schedule Collaboration Services access to Active Directory for the least busy time periods.

On the Scheduling page, select the Use Active Directory access scheduling check box.

When configuring Active Directory objects synchronization, you can specify the following limits on the Quotas page:

The maximum number of synchronized directory objects should be coordinated with the following:
