Set the User List source to Directory Synchronization Tool for each domain that you want to synchronize with the Hosted Services network. You can configure the User List source for each domain using your Administration Center Administrator account. In order for the tool to access the Administration Center successfully, the Administrator account used to authenticate the DST must have a full Company-level Administrator role, or a Company-level Account Manager role.
To verify account permissions, log on to the Administration Center, click the My Account link, and view your Administrative Permissions area. If you cannot view your account information, or need the privileges to be assigned to your Administrator account, please contact the Administrator for the service within your organization.

In order for synchronization to work correctly with the 9.1 DST, you must configure your User List source to the Directory Synchronization Tool option. Edge blocking must be set to disabled until a full synchronization completes. Failure to do so will result in bounced mailAfter the first successful full synchronization has occurred, you can move the Directory-Based Edge Blocking mode to Reject or Reject-Test.

If you are upgrading from a previous version of DST, or migrating from using edge blocking using sFTP or Admin Center, it is critical that you disable Directory-Based Edge Blocking until full synch is confirmed with the new tool. If this is not done, legitimate mail may be blocked until the full synchronization takes place and is replicated.
How to Specify the User List source and Disable Directory-Based Edge Blocking for a domain
  1. On the Administration tab, click the Domains tab.

  2. In the Domains pane, click the name of the domain that you want to modify. You can search for a specific domain name by using the search box.

  3. In the Service Settings section of the center pane, next to User List Settings, click Edit.

  4. In Select the User List source, choose Directory Synchronization Tool.

    DST is not compatible with the use of Virtual Domains. Changing the Directory Source to Directory Synchronization will not disable any Virtual Domains associated with that Parent Domain, but the configuration settings on the Virtual Domain will not be applied.
  5. Set the Directory-Based Edge Blocking (DBEB) mode to Disabled.

  6. Click Save.
