Synchronize endpoint and user information from your Active Directory by running the Active Directory synchronization tool on any Windows endpoint that can connect to the Active Directory server.
Apex Central supports synchronization with multiple Active Directory forests. Adding an Active Directory domain automatically synchronizes all domains from the same forest.
For more information about forest trusts, contact your Active Directory administrator.
Clicking Download the Active Directory synchronization tool will deactivate any previously downloaded Active Directory synchronization tools and stop synchronizing Active Directory servers configured using the deactivated tool.
The file MD5 hash value for the synchronization agent appears.
Ensure that .NET Framework 4.6.1 is installed on the Windows endpoint before executing the tool.
You may also use Windows Task Scheduler to synchronize configured servers using a scheduled task that has a time interval of at least 2 hours between each task repetition.
For more information, refer to the Microsoft documentation.
The synchronized server information appears.
The Active Directory server connection status icon ( or ) appears in front of the server address.
You may also use the Command Tracking screen to monitor the synchronization status.
Apex Central removes the synchronized Active Directory server.
Clicking Clear Data triggers a scheduled task, which runs every 2 minutes, to purge all data of the removed Active Directory servers from the Apex Central database.
