DirSync - Join/Protection validation error

    Question

  • Hi,

    We are trying to configure an additional on prem AD OU to sync to Office 365. We have several OUs already syncing successfully. When selecting our Shared Mailboxes OU in the Configure Directory Partitions section of the miisclient, we receive the following error and the OU is not selected.

    "Join/Protection validation error:

    'publicFolder' is no longer included in the list of selected object classes."

    We are running version 1.0.7020.0 Active Directory Sync Tool.

    DirSync is running on its own dedicated server.

    Please see screenshot of error below(Screenshot will be added once my account has been verified as I am unable to add images at this point

    Once we click ok to the error, the focus of the pointer is automatically dropped to the "Configure Join and Protection Rules"

    It appears that we are missing the publicFolder object in this list as you can see from the screenshot below (Screenshot will be added once my account has been verified as I am unable to add images at this point)

    Can anyone suggest areas of investigation around this error?

    Many Thanks

  • Hi JMC_A,

    I had the same issue today and found this article.

    My resolution was to go to the Select Object Type list, click on Show All and then select the publicFolder type. This allowed me to save and exit when I updated the OU list that I wanted to sync with DirSync.

    Having done this I have now tested that I have synchronised and updated attributes for users in both OUs and the Office 365 tenant shows all the accounts are synced with the on-prem AD

    Hope this of use to you

    Matt

  • Hi Matt,

    Thanks very much for the information. We will be attempting what you have suggested next week. I will confirm if this has worked once we have made the change.

    Many Thanks
