In SharePoint Server 2010, you can use Profile Synchronization to synchronize user and group profile information that is stored in the SharePoint Server 2010 profile store with profile information that is stored in directory services across the enterprise. This profile information includes hierarchy and group information that can be used to drive functionality such as audiences or hierarchy-driven business processes.

For Beta 2, we published documentation that explains how to configure Profile Synchronization. We recently updated these documents with feedback from you.

This newly updated documentation includes the following tasks:

The updated Profile Synchronization documentation includes improved task requirements and permissions information that should give you all the information you need to get Profile Synchronization up and running in your test environment. We’ve also restructured the documents, separating the set-up tasks from the actual synchronization tasks.

Thanks for your feedback and let us know what you think of the new, improved version of the SharePoint 2010 Profile Synchronization document set!
