Contains the account name to use for authentication on the source forest. If this element is empty, the synchronizer will use the credentials of the account that is currently logged on.
Can be empty
The <source-ad-account> element and the <acocunt-domain> element combine to create the account domain and name to use for alternate credentials. For example, if the account to use is "fabrikam\jsmith", <account-domain> would contain "fabrikam" and <source-ad-account> would contain "jsmith".
Because passwords should never be stored as plain text in an XML file, the ADAM synchronizer will request the password from the user when the configuration is installed. This password will be encrypted and stored by the synchronizer for use when the synchronization is performed.
