Lessons for Active Directory Sync Implementation (v13.5)

Changes to the Active Directory Synchronization Interface

In version 13.5 Policy Assist, we have rebuilt the Active Directory Synchronization component which now includes a user interface to easily configure multiple domains and multiple targets.

Each Domain can be considered as a ‘connection’ which allows you to specify targets unique to the connection you are making. As an example, if you are connecting to multiple domains, some of your targets will only apply to that specific domain.

Active Directory Sync settings are available by clicking Active Directory Synchronization link under the Security Tab in the Admin area. Note, if the screens you see don't match the lessons below, you are likely still on an older version of AD Sync Service.
