Manual conflict resolution
If no automation rules are specified, or no rules can be used to resolve a particular conflict, the synchronization service marks the published object as non-applied.
In other words, non-applied objects are the ones whose changes will not be automatically applied to your forest. These objects are displayed in the Non-Applied Objects node in the management tree.
For the listed objects, you have to resolve conflicts manually, either by using the method Collaboration Services suggests or by using your own method (custom action).
Applying approved objects
You may want to manually resolve all conflicts for the objects your forest is subscribed to (that is, to approve objects applied to your forest manually), either one by one or all at once.
|Go to the Advanced
tab and select the Apply approved objects only
Matching rules viewer utility
If you have made a mistake when manually matching conflicts or you think the automatic conflict management may have been configured incorrectly, then there is a utility available that will let you look at the matches which have been made and correct any issues.
This utility, MatchingRulesViewer.exe, can be found in the Collaboration Services folder:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Quest Software\Collaboration Services\x.x.x.xxx
where x.x.x.xxx is the version number of Collaboration Services you have installed.
