Allows you to configure the execution timeout for all SQL queries you specified in the connection settings (for example, those specified in the Specify How to Select and Modify Data option). Use the SQL query execution timeout box to type the timeout value you want to use.
Specify attributes to identify objects
This expandable item provides the following options that allow you to specify the attributes with which you want to uniquely identify each object in the connected data system:
Available attributes. Lists the attributes that are available in the external data system. Use this list to select the attributes whose values you want to use to generate a unique identifier for each object in the external data system. You can filter attributes by typing in the text box at the top of this list. To select multiple attributes, hold down CTRL and click to select attributes in the list.
UniqueID attributes. Lists the attributes whose values are currently used to generate a unique identifier for each object in the external data system.
Add->. Moves the selected attributes from the Available attributes list to the UniqueID attributes list.
<-Remove. Moves the selected attributes from the UniqueID attributes list to the Available attributes list.
Constructed UniqueID. Displays a combination of the attributes whose values will make up a unique identifier for each object in the external data system.
Working with IBM AS/400
This section describes how to create or modify a connection to IBM AS/400 Directory so that Synchronization Service could work with IBM AS/400 Directory data in that data system.
To create a connection to IBM AS/400 Directory, you need to use Synchronization Service in conjunction with a special connector called IBM AS/400 Directory Connector. This connector is included in the Synchronization Service package.
The IBM AS/400 Directory Connector supports the following features:
Table 65: Supported features
Allows you to read and write data in the connected data system.
Delta processing mode
Allows you to process only the data that has changed in the connected data system since the last synchronization operation, thereby reducing the overall synchronization operation time.
Allows you to synchronize user passwords from an Active Directory domain to the connected data system.
The IBM AS/400 server must have LDAP directory services installed and configured.
An LDAP service account must be created on your IBM AS/400 server which has the appropriate permissions to administer users and groups on this platform.
In this section:
Creating an IBM AS/400 connection
To create a new connection
- In the Synchronization Service Administration Console, open the Connections tab.
Click Add connection, and then use the following options:
- Click Next.
On the Specify connection settings page, use the following options:
- Server. Type or select the fully qualified DNS name of the IBM AS/400 server running the LDAP service.
- Port. Type the IBM AS/400 LDAP communication port number in use by the service.
- User name. Specify the fully distinguished name (DN) of the account under which the application will access the IBM AS/400 LDAP directory service.
- Password. specify the password of the user account under which the application will access the IBM AS/400 LDAP directory service. We recommend that you select the SSL check box if synchronizing sensitive data between connectors.
- Test Connection. Click this button to verify the specified connection settings.
Click Finish to create a connection to the IBM AS/400 system.
