I'll think of a clever title one day. Today's not that day. Tomorrow's not looking good either.

  • ADAMSync can also transform users in to proxy users

    Now that we have ADAMSync synchronizing our data over, we should probably investigate the most commonly asked for transformation: proxy user transformation. When we introduced proxy bind in ADAM RTM, customers seemed to really connect with the semantic...
  • Configuring and running ADAMSync for the first time

    So now that our ADAM schema is ready, we can go ahead and start configuring ADAMSync. We need to do three things to get ADAMSync running at this point: 1) Modify the XML file. The XML file is used as the configuration point for ADAMSync, so we’ll tweak...
  • Syncing to our OU=SyncTargetOU NC instead

    Earlier in this series of posts I changed our sync target from form “OU=” to “DC=”. This was done to carefully skirt around a small issue. Now with our new found knowledge of logging in ADAMSync, let’s give it another try. So let’s go ahead in to our...
  • Synchronizing only the attributes you really want

    In our previous ADAMSync runs we synchronized all attributes except those in the <exclude> tags. This is probably ok for our tinkering, but in a real scenario, you might want to consider picking those you want instead of getting everything but those...
  • Gotta get the schema right first

    Before trying to synchronize much of anything, we need to make sure the required schema elements are in place. NOTE: I would estimate that around a third of all questions I've received on ADAMSync came back to schema problems. It is critically important...
  • Getting a log from ADAMSync

    Over the course of the next few posts we’re going to start modifying all sorts of things in the configuration. Depending upon the particulars of your environment this might or might not pan out. :) As such, we should probably take a quick look at the...
  • ADAMSync in R2 - a new sync option

    Welcome R2 RC0 ! As you might have heard, it’s hit the streets. With R2 comes the latest version of ADAM . ADAM has been a download from Microsoft.com since 2003. Since that time, based in part on customer feedback, the decision was made to bundle ADAM...
  • Start.com released

    Looks like it's out there. http://www.start.com The start.com team blogged about this earlier today .
