Quick Connect Express for AD 5.2 - Quick Start Guide

Modifying an Existing Active Directory Domain Connection

2.
Click Connection settings below the existing Active Directory domain connection you want to modify.
3.
On the Connection Settings tab, click the Specify connection settings item to expand it, and then use the following options:
In the Domain text box, type the fully qualified domain name of the domain to which you want to connect.
In the Domain controller text box, type the fully qualified domain name of the domain controller to which you want to connect.
None. Allows you to connect without using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).
Use. Allows you to connect through SSL.
Preferred. Allows you to attempt the connection through SSL first. If this connection attempt fails, the Sync Engine tries to connect without using SSL.
Quick Connect Service account. Allows you to access the Active Directory domain in the security context of the account under which the Quick Connect Service is running.
Windows account. Allows you to access the Active Directory domain in the security context of the account whose user name and password you specify below this option.
4.
Optionally, you can narrow the number of objects participating in the connection scope by setting up filter conditions: on the Connection Settings tab, click the Advanced item to expand it, and then use the following list columns:
Once you have added an object type to the list, use the Filter condition column to specify a condition the objects of that type must meet in order to participate in the connection scope.

Synchronizing User Passwords Between Two Active Directory Domains

This step is required because Quick Connect cannot read user passwords in the source domain and write them to the target domain. The pwdHash attribute allows you to copy user password hash from the source domain to the target domain. By doing so, you effectively change user’s password in the target domain to the password existing in the source domain.
When connecting the Quick Connect Sync Engine to the target Active Directory domain, make sure you use the Specified domain controller option to connect to the domain controller on which you installed Capture Agent in step 2 of this procedure.
c)
In the provisioning or updating synchronization step, configure a rule to synchronize the pwdHash attribute value from the user objects in the source domain to their counterparts in the target domain.

Synchronizing SID History Between Two Active Directory Domains

When connecting the Quick Connect Sync Engine to the target Active Directory domain, make sure you use the Specified domain controller option to connect to the domain controller on which you installed Capture Agent in step 1 of this procedure.

Working with an AD LDS (ADAM) Instance

To create a connection to an AD LDS (ADAM) instance, you need to use Quick Connect Sync Engine in conjunction with a special connector called AD LDS (ADAM) Connector. This connector is included in the Quick Connect Express for Active Directory package.
