Applies to: SharePoint Server 2010

Topic Last Modified: 2011-11-10

This article describes how to configure the Profile Incremental Synchronization timer job to define the schedule for running incremental profile synchronization. You must have first performed a full synchronization before you can set the incremental synchronization schedule. For more information, see Plan for profile synchronization (SharePoint Server 2010).

Before you perform this procedure, ensure that you have completed the steps that are described in Configure profile synchronization (SharePoint Server 2010).

To schedule profile synchronization
  1. Verify that you have the following administrative credentials:

    • You must be a farm administrator or an administrator of the User Profile service application to perform these procedures. If you are not a farm administrator, start this procedure by using the Manage Profile Service page.

  2. On the Central Administration Web site, in the Application Management section, click Manage service applications.

  3. On the Manage Service Applications page, click in the Name column of the User Profile service application row.

  4. On the Manage Profile Service page, in the Synchronization section, click Configure Synchronization Timer Job.

  5. On the Edit Timer Job page, in the Recurring Schedule section, select the frequency at which you want recurring profile synchronization to occur.

    • If you select Minutes, type the number of minutes that should pass between the start of each timer job.

    • If you select Hourly, type the number of minutes past every hour that the timer job should start to run at the earliest, and type the number of minutes past every hour that the timer job should start to run at the latest.

    • If you select Daily, select the time at which the timer job should start to run, at the earliest and at the latest, every day.

    • If you select Weekly, select the earliest and latest day and time at which the timer job should start to run every week.

    • If you select Monthly, either select the earliest and latest date and time at which the timer job should start to run every month, or select a day and time at which the timer job should start to run every month.

    noteNote
    If you want to specify an exact starting time for the timer job to run, set the same value in the start and end times of the interval in which the timer job should start.
  6. Click OK.

    If you want to start the profile synchronization immediately, click Run Now.
