In the left-hand navigation window, click the root directory
Root [filter is active].
Select File > New > Import domain from Active
In the action area on the right, select
Select the required directory from the Directory DSN
list and click the magnifier icon (top right).
A graphical representation of the Active Directory structure of the
organizational units (OU) in your company is displayed.
Check the domain to be synchronized and click
Synchronize at the bottom of the navigation
Note: If elements have been moved from one subtree to another in Active Directory,
then both subtrees have to be synchronized with the SQL database. Synchronizing
just one subtree results in deleting instead of moving the objects.
Note: AD synchronization does not synchronize the pre-Windows 2000 (NetBIOS) name of
the domain, if the Domain Controller is configured with an IP address. Configure
the Domain Controller to use the server name (NetBIOS or DNS) instead. The
client (on which the AD synchronization is running) must be either part of the
domain, or it must be able to resolve the DNS name to the target Domain
