Sun Java System Identity Synchronization for Windows 6.0 Installation and Configuration Guide


A connector is a Java process that manages the synchronization process in a single data source type. A connector detects user changes in the data source and publishes these changes to remote connectors over Message Queue.

Identity Synchronization for Windows provides the following directory-specific connectors. These connectors bidirectionally synchronize user attributes and password updates between directories and domains.

Note –

The Watchdog is installed where you install a connector, and it starts, restarts, and stops the connectors. For more information, see Watchdog Process.
