Saving a Configuration

ProcedureTo Save your Current Configuration from the Console Panels

  1. Click Save to store your settings at this point.

  2. The Configuration Validity Status window is displayed as the program evaluates your configuration settings.

    Figure 7–55 Configuration Validity Status Window

    Showing configuration validity status

    This panel confirms that your configuration is valid or identifies configuration problems that must be fixed.

    Saving your configuration may take a few minutes because the program rewrites the information out to the configuration directory and notifies the system manager.

    The system manager (a Core component) is responsible for distributing your configuration settings out to the components that need the information.

    Note –

    Configuration validation errors are red and warnings are yellow.

    • You cannot save a configuration with errors.

    • You can save configurations with warnings, but it is better to try and clear the warnings first.

  3. If your configuration is valid, click Continue to save the configuration.

    A Connector Installation Instructions dialog box is displayed, giving instructions about how to proceed with installing the Identity Synchronization for Windows Connectors and subcomponents.

    This list has now been updated with a To Do list that is customized for your deployment. (Up to this point, the steps were generic.) Note that you can also access and update the To Do list from the Status tab on the Identity Synchronization for Windows Console.
