Maintain the Microsoft Active Directory (AD) Bridge

Maintaining the Microsoft Active Directory (AD) Bridge includes transferring the bridge to another machine and restarting the bridge.

Transfer the Microsoft Active Directory (AD) Bridge

After you have setup a Microsoft Active Directory (AD) Bridge, you can transfer that bridge to another machine.


If you can't remove the client for the AD Bridge or the bridge still appears in the Directory Integrations page, then follow the procedure in Remove a Microsoft Active Directory (AD) Bridge to remove the bridge.
  1. From the original machine, access the Control Panel, and uninstall the client for the AD Bridge.
  2. On the other machine, install the client. See Create a Microsoft Active Directory (AD) Bridge.
  3. In the Identity Cloud Service console, expand the Navigation Drawer, click Settings, and then click Directory Integrations.
  4. Verify that the AD Bridge appears in the other machine with an Active status. This bridge can now be used to synchronize with your AD enterprise directory structure.

Restart the Microsoft Active Directory (AD) Bridge

If the Microsoft Active Directory (AD) Bridge stops unexpectedly, then you can restart it.

  1. Click Start.
  2. In the text box, enter Services, and then press Enter.
    The Services window appears. This window contains a utility that's used to manage daemon processes within the Windows OS. These processes include the back-end service that’s used to establish communication between Oracle Identity Cloud Service and AD.
  3. Click Services (Local), click the Standard tab, scroll down the list of services, right-click Identity Cloud Service Microsoft Active Directory Bridge Service, and then click Start.
  4. Verify that Running appears as the status for the service.
