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

  • Blog Post: 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 this file to have the settings we desire. 2) Install...
  • Blog Post: 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 previous config file and change this line: <target...
  • Blog Post: 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 logging available before we break anything too badly...
  • Blog Post: 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 you say not to. Why? Well, consider the costs...
  • Blog Post: Change visibility in the directory...or lack there of (aka "what's the point of aging?")

    I’m often asked about aging in adamsync so I thought I’d present the more general problem here for people to ponder. Hopefully this gives some context around the problem which aging in adamsync is supposed to address. Imagine you are writing a tool which sync’s changes out of AD. You (the person running...
  • Blog Post: 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 that the schema be configured properly. For ADAMSync...
  • Blog Post: 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. If anything, I’d argue we have customers overusing...
  • Blog Post: ADAMSync on pre-R2 systems

    From the inbox..... <quote> You say the requirements are Win2003R2 with the ADAM installed from the R2 CD. Will your guides work for us aswell? Running Win2003 SP1 in AD-environment and our developers are running standard Windows XP with the ADAM downloaded from MS download site? </quote>...
  • Blog Post: 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 in to the OS as an optional install. For those of...
