Synchronization of Active Directory and UCS domains
UCS allows automatic synchronisation of encrypted passwords, group definitions and other directory service objects between Microsoft Active Directory and Univention Corporate Server so that all data are stored in parallel both in Active Directory and LDAP.
This allows both unidirectional and bidirectional synchronisation and ensures smooth, parallel operation of Microsoft Windows and UCS environments without considerable administrative efforts. In addition, it is also possible to synchronise multiple Microsoft Windows domains in parallel. This allows the effective construction of an Open Source metadirectory, via which independent Microsoft Windows domains – alongside many other additional infrastructure components – can be administrated.
The “Active Directory Connector” module can be easily installed from the Univention App Center and configured using the Univention Management Console (UMC).
