Force EdgeSync Synchronization

Exchange 2010
 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010 SP3, Exchange Server 2010 SP2

Topic Last Modified: 2011-03-19

You can manually start synchronization of data from Active Directory to the subscribed Edge Transport servers.

The configuration and recipient data is kept up to date by periodically synchronizing changes from Active Directory to Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS). By default, configuration data is synchronized to AD LDS once every hour, and recipient data is synchronized to AD LDS once every four hours. You can change these intervals using the Set-EdgeSyncService cmdlet.

You may want to force EdgeSync synchronization to start initial replication immediately after you create the Edge Subscription, or if you've made significant changes to the configuration or recipients in Active Directory. The Start-EdgeSynchronization cmdlet resets the EdgeSync synchronization schedule. The time of the subsequent synchronization intervals is based on the time that this command is initiated. You can force a full replication or only the changes since last replication.

Looking for other management tasks related to managing Edge Subscriptions? Check out Managing Edge Subscriptions.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "EdgeSync" entry in the Transport Permissions topic.

noteNote:
You can't use the EMC to force EdgeSync synchronization.

This example starts EdgeSync synchronization with the following options:

  • The synchronization is initiated from the Hub Transport server Hub01.

  • All Edge Transport servers are synchronized.

  • Only the changes since the last replication are synchronized.

Start-EdgeSynchronization -Server Hub01

This example starts EdgeSync synchronization with the following options:

  • The synchronization is initiated from the Hub Transport server Hub01.

  • Only the Edge Transport server Edge03 is synchronized.

  • All recipient and configuration data are fully synchronized.

Start-EdgeSynchronization -Server Hub01 -TargetServer Edge03 -ForceFullSync
