When configuring the Directory Server source, the preferred Directory Server is set to master-east.eb.com. The Directory Server Connector uses this Directory Server to detect and update changes that require synchronization with Active Directory and Windows NT. Alternatively, the master-west.eb.com domain could have been selected. However, Directory Server Connector performance is better when connecting to a local Directory Server instead of a Directory Server located over a wide area network (WAN).
When the password modification settings are changed, the Console automatically enables the SSL option, which is required while synchronizing from Directory Server to Active Directory.
Select Choose a Known Server and then choose a preferred Directory Server from the drop-down menu, in this case, master-east.eb.com.
If master-east.eb.com is unavailable, the Directory Server Connector synchronizes changes made at Active Directory to master-west.eb.com.
