The Microsoft® Exchange Server Analyzer Tool queries the Active Directory® directory service to determine the value of the activationStyle attribute on each connection agreement object. The activationStyle attribute represents the schedule setting for the connection agreement. If the schedule is set to Never, a warning is displayed.

If you have determined that this connection agreement is no longer required, you should delete it. If this connection agreement is required, you should configure it to run at an appropriate schedule.

  1. Click Start, click Programs, click Administrative Tools, and then click Active Directory Connector.

  2. In the left pane, click the Active Directory Connector (ADC) server that hosts the connection agreement you want to modify.

  3. In the right pane, right-click the connection agreement you want to modify, and then click Properties.

  4. Click the Schedule tab.

  5. Set the schedule to Always or Selected times. If you select the latter, click the appropriate areas in the grid to have the connection agreement run at those times.
