Directory Sync Not Work???
I need a little help. I have created a OU (named AltirisTest) and a computer account in Active Directory. The computer account was manually created and does not belong to a physical computer. I performed an AD Import on the NS (NS 6) I then went to Resource Management>Resources>Organizational Structures>mydomain.com>AltirisTest and I see that the AD Import pulled in the new OU and computer account. I then went to AD and deleted the computer account from the AltirisTest OU. I went back to the NS and performed a new AD Import and then set the Directory Synchronization Schedule to every Half-Hour. I let all of this cook overnight, this am I was expecting to see the computer account gone from Resource Management>Resources>Organizational Structures>mydomain.com>AltirisTest BUT it was not. I manually performed a Purge Maintenance by selecting the "Purge Now" button. The computer is still there and its status is Active. This computer is not showing up in the computers that need the Agent collection because no Basic Inventory could be run to verify the OS and it is not in the All Computers collection because it is not managed. I can create a collection based on vComputer.Name and IsManaged=0 and the computer is there. It is not marked for deletion in the ItemResource table. The import rule is still active. I know Purge Maintenance would not delete it because it is not managed (I had to try though) so why is it not being deleted by Directory Sync? Does this highlight a problem with Directory Sync or is it even working? Thanks.
