May 13, 2016 Leave a comment

Here are some of the commands.

To view the Scheduler configuration:

Get-ADSyncScheduler

This shows you the current sync configuration information like interval, sync policy type, next sync cycle start time etc.

To change the scheduler configuration:

Set-ADSyncScheduler

This allows you to change some the following sync parameters.

  • CustomizedSyncCycleInterval
  • NextSyncCyclePolicyType
  • PurgeRunHistoryInterval
  • SyncCycleEnabled
  • MaintenanceEnabled

To Start the Scheduler manually:

There are two synchronization options – Delta and Full.
Delta – Use this when there is an urgent change that needs to be synchronized immediately.

Start-ADSyncSyncCycle -PolicyType Delta

Full – Use this when the following changes have been made.

  • Synchronization rules have been changed
  • Filtering changes, which included different number of objects
  • More attributes or objects are to be imported from source directory
    Start-ADSyncSyncCycle -PolicyType Initial
    Check the status of the connector:
    Get-ADSyncConnectorRunStatus

    If its busy and running the sync the connector name will be returned.
