Start-EdgeSynchronization

 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2007 SP3, Exchange Server 2007 SP2, Exchange Server 2007 SP1

Use the Start-EdgeSynchronization cmdlet to immediately start synchronization of configuration data from the Active Directory directory service to the subscribed computers that have the Edge Transport server role installed.


Start-EdgeSynchronization [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-Server <ServerIdParameter>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

Use the Start-EdgeSynchronization cmdlet to immediately start synchronization of configuration data from Active Directory to the subscribed Edge Transport servers. The Edge Subscription process subscribes an Edge Transport server to an Active Directory site. The Microsoft Exchange EdgeSync service that runs on Hub Transport servers replicates data that is stored in Active Directory to the local ADAM store on the Edge Transport server. After the initial replication, one-way synchronization of changed data in Active Directory to Active Directory Application Mode (ADAM) keeps this data up to date.

The synchronization of configuration data occurs at one-hour intervals. The synchronization of recipient data occurs at four-hour intervals. If you want to synchronize Active Directory changes to ADAM immediately, run the Start-EdgeSynchronization cmdlet.

To perform the following procedure, you must log on to a Microsoft Exchange 2007 server in the organization by using an account that is delegated the following:

  • Exchange Organization Administrator role

Parameter Required Type Description

Confirm

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Confirm parameter causes the command to pause processing and requires you to acknowledge what the command will do before processing continues. You don't have to specify a value with the Confirm parameter.

Server

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.ServerIdParameter

Use the Server parameter to specify the identity of a Hub Transport server on which to run the Start-EdgeSynchronization cmdlet when you initiate the task from a remote computer. If the Server parameter is not used, the task runs on the local server.

WhatIf

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The WhatIf parameter instructs the command to simulate the actions that it would take on the object. By using the WhatIf parameter, you can view what changes would occur without having to apply any of those changes. You don't have to specify a value with the WhatIf parameter.

Exceptions Description

 

 

The following two examples show how to use the Start-EdgeSynchronization cmdlet to start synchronization of changed data from Active Directory to the subscribed Edge Transport servers. The first command shows how to start synchronization from the local server on which the command is run. The second command shows how to start synchronization from a specified Hub Transport server when the command is run from a remote computer.
