VIP LDAP synchronization

Created: 21 Nov 2013 • Updated: 06 Jun 2014 | 1 comment


It is possible to run LDAP Sync only for one "user store" ?

Currently we have few "user stores" configured on Enterprise Gateway, but we need synchronize only one of them.

I noticted that in "LDAP Sync" tab, there is no options to select which "user store" will be synchronized, info form documentation

"LDAP Directory Synchronization Service synchronizes the VIP attribute IDs in all User Stores to VIP

User Service. "

One of our "user store" have configured "VIP User Group Mapping" to synchronize groups from Active Directory to VIP Service, 

How to force system to synchronize only one of "user store" ?

P.S. To configure synchronization of User Groups on VIP Manager I used this video:

Thanks in advance for any help

Hi Mario,

LDAP Sync is currently designed to grab data from all of its user stores. As such, a single server will only be able to Sync everything or not at all.

As a workaround, you should be able to utilize a secondary Enterprise Gateway with LDAP Sync disabled to house the user stores you do not want synced. This does require a secondary instance of Enterprise Gateway.
