Handling unexpected interruption of synchronization

If synchronizationClosed is run with a start up configuration, some One Identity Manager processes are stopped. It is not possible to start this start up configuration again. The One Identity Manager saves start information of the current synchronization in the database. This start information is reset once synchronization is completely normally.

If synchronization stopped unexpectedly because a server was not available, for example, you must manually reset the start information. You can only restart synchronization after this.

IMPORTANT: Start information may not be reset if synchronization is running normally.

Before you reset the start information, ensure that synchronization has really been stopped.

To reset synchronization start information

  1. Select the Configuration > Start up configurations category.
  2. Select a start up configuration in the document view and click Reset.
  3. Confirm the security prompt with Yes.

    The status "Broken" is entered in the synchronization log.

NOTE: If necessary, start information can be reset automatically. To do this, customizeClosed the process DPR_DPRProjectionStartInfo_Run_Synchronization. Changes made to the process are applied to all target systems connected to the One Identity Manager database when synchronization takes place.

Resetting revisions

SynchronizationClosed with revision filtering involves finding object pairs where one has newer change information than the last time it was synchronized. It may also be necessary to process those objects during synchronization, whose change information has not be updated since the last synchronization. This might be required if changes to data were made without the change information for the object being updated, for example. It is possible that data in one of the connected systemsClosed was restored from a backup. This means the change information for the objects is now older than before the last synchronization. Such objects are not processed by synchronization with revision filtering.

One Identity Manager provides an option to reset revision numbers in a start up configuration. The revision can be reset for one schema type or for all of a schema's types. The next time synchronization is run with this start up configuration, all affected objects are seen as changed.

To reset the revision number

  1. Select the category Configuration > Start up configurations.
  2. Select a start up-configuration in the document view and click Revisions...

    This opens the Manage revisions... dialog window. which displays all the schema types with their respective revision numbers. SchemaClosed types without a revision number, are not displayed.

  3. Select the schema for which you want to reset the revision number.

    - OR -

    From the target system schema or the One Identity Manager schema, select the schema type for which you want to reset the revision.

  4. Click Reset.
  5. Select another schema type if required.
  6. Click Apply.
  7. Confirm the security prompt with Yes.

    The revisions of the selected schema types are deleted from the start up configuration.

Synchronization analysis

SynchronizationClosed results are summarized in the synchronization log. You can specify the extent of the synchronization log for each system connection individually. One Identity Manager provides several reports in which the synchronization results are organizedClosed under different criteria.
