Sun Java System Identity Synchronization for Windows 6.0 Deployment Planning Guide

Initializing the Connector State

To initialize the connector state for the failover configuration, synchronization must be started. Before synchronization can be started, the Identity Synchronization for Windows Plug-in must be enabled on both and to point to the failover configuration. After the plug-in has been enabled and the directory servers have been restarted, synchronization can be started. Verify that both connectors have entered the SYNCING state, by using the console or the idsync printstat command:

bash-2.05# ./idsync printstat -w <password omitted\> -q <password omitted\>

System Manager Status:  Started

After synchronization has started, modify a user password in both Active Directory and Directory Server, which will force the connectors to persist their state. To verify, do the following:

After you have verified that both connectors have check-pointed their state, stop synchronization for the failover installation. Then, reinstall the Directory Server Plug-ins on and to point to the primary configuration.
