Synchronizing Address Book Manager

Synchronization with the Microsoft Exchange servers keeps groups and mailboxes up to date so that emails can be archived without problems. With the Address Book Manager, you can set up automatic synchronization schedules and initiate manual synchronization of various artifacts.

In this topic:

·Steps to perform a manual synchronization

·Steps to schedule automatic synchronization


Steps to perform a manual synchronization

1.Open Address Book Manager by clicking the toolbar icon abm-003 or clicking Address Book Manager from the Tools menu.

2.The Synchronization tab opens by default.

abm-060

3.Select the Microsoft Exchange mailboxes, groups and permissions that you want to synchronize.

4.In the Select servers box, select the Microsoft Exchange servers with which you want to synchronize the mailboxes, groups and permissions.

5.Click Apply to confirm the settings.

6.Click Sync Now in the Microsoft Exchange Synchronization box to manually initiate the synchronization of the mailboxes and groups with the selected Microsoft Exchange servers.

abm-061

7.Click Stop to halt the synchronization process before it completes. When the process completes, click the Close button that appears. You can find the results of the synchronization process in a log file located at C:\Program Files (x86)\Metalogix\MAM4Microsoft Exchange\Log\Synchronization_<timestamp>.log

8.Click Sync Now in the Microsoft Exchange Permissions Synchronization box to manually initiate the synchronization of the mailboxes and groups with the selected Microsoft Exchange servers.

abm-062

9.Click Stop to halt the synchronization process before it completes. When the process completes, click the Close button that appears. You can find the results of the synchronization process in a log file located at C:\Program Files (x86)\Metalogix\MAM4Microsoft Exchange\Log\Synchronization_<timestamp>.log


Steps to schedule automatic synchronization

1.Open Address Book Manager by clicking the toolbar icon abm-003 or clicking Address Book Manager from the Tools menu.

2.The Synchronization tab opens by default.

abm-060

3.Select the Microsoft Exchange mailboxes, groups and permissions that you want to synchronize.

4.In the Select servers box, select the Microsoft Exchange servers with which you want to synchronize the mailboxes, groups and permissions.

5.Click Schedule in the Microsoft Exchange Synchronization box. The Microsoft Exchange Synchronization Scheduler dialog appears.

abm-063

6.Select Use scheduled synchronization to enable the synchronization calendar. Each row corresponds to a day of the week. Each column corresponds to an hour of the day (24-hour clock).

7.To set up a schedule using the synchronization calendar, click the cell that corresponds to the day of the week and the hour of day when you want the scheduler to initiate a synchronization job. For example, in the figure above, the synchronization schedule is set to start at 18:00 hrs (6 pm) every weekday. The time zone of the computer where the application is running will be used to determine the time.

info

NOTE: If you select consecutive cells in a single row, synchronization will start automatically every hour on the hour. It will consume unnecessary processing time and is not recommended.

8.Click OK to save the schedule or Cancel to discard the setup.

9.You can find the results of the scheduled synchronization process in a log file located at C:\Program Files (x86)\Metalogix\MAM4Microsoft Exchange\Log\Synchronization_<timestamp>.log
