Step 3: Configure a step to update MoveMailboxTo attribute value

Connections to external data systems > External data systems supported out of the box > Working with Exchange Server > Step 3: Configure a step to update MoveMailboxTo attribute value
  1. In the sync workflow you created in Step 2: Create a new sync workflow, create a new update step.
  2. In the update step, select the target data system for the data synchronization operation. This must be the Exchange Server to which you created connection in Step 1: Configure a connection to Exchange Server.
  3. Configure the update step so that it updates the value of the MoveMailboxTo attribute on the appropriate Mailbox objects. The new attribute value must include the name or GUID of the Exchange Server database to which you want to move the mailboxes.

For instructions on how to create and configure an update step, see Creating an updating step.

Step 4: Run your sync workflow

Working with Active Roles

To create a connection to Active Roles, you need to use Synchronization Service in conjunction with a special connector included in the Synchronization Service package.

The Active Roles Connector supports the following Synchronization Service features:

 

Table 50: Supported features 

Feature

 

Bidirectional synchronization

Allows you to read and write data in the connected data system.

Yes

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.

Yes

Password synchronization

Allows you to synchronize user passwords from an Active Directory domain to the connected data system.

Yes

The Active Roles Connector supports linked attributes in the Active Directory schema. Linked attributes allow you to associate one object with another object. Linked attributes exist in pairs:

  • Forward link attribute. This is a linked attribute that exists on a source object (example: the member attribute on the Group object). Forward link attributes can be single-valued or multivalued.
  • Back link attribute. This is a linked attribute that can be specified on a target object (example: the memberOf attribute on the User object). Back link attributes are multivalued and they must have a corresponding forward link attribute. Back link attributes are not stored in Active Directory. Rather, they are calculated based on the corresponding forward link attribute each time a query is issued.
