About synchronizing organizational units

Integration and synchronization with LDAP servers and Active Directory is an optional feature of the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager. You can import organizational units from other servers and set up automatic synchronization of the imported OUs with the other servers.

See Synchronizing user accounts between directory servers and Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager.

Any changes that you make on the LDAP server do not appear immediately in the organizational unit that was imported into the management server. The latency period depends on the synchronization frequency. You can set the synchronization frequency by editing server properties on the console.

The name of the user still appears in the group on the console even if you perform the following tasks:

  • Copy a user from an organizational unit to a group

  • Delete that user from the LDAP server subsequently

The synchronization occurs only between the LDAP server and the organizational unit.
