Hello, all. I know one can only have one sync agreement with an AD.
However, is it possible to have a sync agreement with multiple ADs. We
would like to synchronize the top of our tree with our main,
multi-tenant AD and then synchronize lower levels of the domains with
separate domains controlled by our clients. Thus, the same users and
groups are synchronized to two different AD trees.
As much as we dearly want this to work, I think it is asking for trouble
as the GUID from AD is passed back to LDAP as part of the
synchronization. Since these GUIDs will be different for the same user
from different AD trees, is this a problem?
I know that sounds a bit convoluted so let me give an example. I have a
user Joe in LDAP. I synchronize him to MyAD so he is MyAD\Joe. I also
synchronize him to TheirAD so he is also TheirAD\Joe. The GUID for MyAD
\Joe is different from the GUID for TheirAD\Joe even though it is the
same LDAP Joe. Is that a problem? Thanks - John
Yes, the sync key is the ntUniqueID == AD objectGUID
Yes, it will be a problem, if you want the single account in RHDS to
sync to both accounts in AD.
