- Synchronize Exchange contacts and distribution groups in a remote domain
- Re-configure AD Sync for Customer Changes
You can configure AD Sync to monitor changes to Hosted Exchange contacts and distribution groups that are created in a remote domain through Services Manager. You can also disable AD Sync for specific contacts and distribution groups so you can modify them through the control panel.
When a contact or distribution group is created, an object identifier is assigned automatically. For contacts, the identifier is the objectGUID. For distribution groups, the identifier is the objectSid. The AD Sync client provides these identifiers to Services Manager, which uses them to display synchronized items in the control panel. By default, these object identifiers are stored in extensionAttribute12 on the primary domain. If another application is using extensionAttribute12 to store other values, you can modify the Sync Object Id setting in the Hosted Exchange service settings to specify a different extension attribute (Configuration > System Manager > Service Deployment > Hosted Exchange > Service Settings, Customer category, under Extension Attributes).
