Directory and Resource Administrator 6.x

In the Directory and Resource Administrator MMC, the timestamp under Synchronization status has not changed for several days.

The synchronization timestamp only updates if there has been a change to the security model since the last scheduled synchronization or when a manual Multi-Master synchronization is completed.


By default, the Multi-Master synchronization is scheduled for every four hours.  When a scheduled synchronization starts, it looks to see if any security model changes have taken place since the last scheduled synchronization.  If there have not been any security model changes, then synchronization does not take place and the timestamp is not updated.  An application log entry such as the one below is created on the Primary DRA server that states no changes have occurred since the last replication.

None of the DRA modules have changed since the last time data files were generated.

This issue is resolved in DRA version 7.0 and later.
