AD Synchronisation


I am trying to get EPO to synchronize with my AD at a regular interval, it currently does this every hour, is it possible to get this down to every 30mins - I presume this would be something I need to use "Cron Syntax" for?

Does anybody have an example of Cron Syntax for EPO as i'm stumped by that....:confused::)

RE: AD Synchronisation

I would think you could just select "daily" and use different intervals although I think I remember only being able to add a certian amount of fields. It sure would be something to try regardless.

RE: AD Synchronisation

Just curious why you want to sync with AD that often?

RE: AD Synchronisation

Ahh, I think I know why you want to sync AD that often.

Are you running ePo 4.0? Would this work? Under Automation -> Server Tasks -> Edit your Active Directory Sync task. Change the Schedule to run "Hourly" at 0 minutes past the hour. Then hit the "+" sign next to the first Hourly Schedule entry to add a second Hourly entry and set it to run at 30 minutes past the hour.

RE: AD Synchronisation

Was just going to make the default computers container sync more often, as we have machines joining the domain regurlaly :o:)

Yep EPO 4.0 - Those hourly settings look promising i'll give those a try now - Thanks grin

RE: AD Synchronisation

Yep that's worked perfectly - Thanks Scissor grin
