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


The administrator of each forest can select the objects and attributes to publish to other synchronization partners. The objects to be synchronized are grouped into collections—sets of objects and their attributes. Administrators can either define the objects to be synchronized on a per-container (organizational unit) basis, or explicitly add groups, users, and contacts to collections. This information then becomes available to other forests. Administrators of synchronization partners can see new collections of objects and can choose whether to subscribe to them.

Publication settings can vary for different collections of objects. For example, you might choose to publish the mobile phone numbers of administrators so they can be contacted in case of emergency, while keeping the mobile phone numbers of other users (such as top executives) unlisted outside the organization. Predefined "Minimum" and "All" sets of attributes to be published are provided, and administrators can create their own predefined sets (presets).

Collaboration Services offers numerous methods for organizing objects into collections. For example, you can do any combination of the following:
