Let's walk-through the steps to add domain(s) for synchronization. Large corporations have this thing where they have more than one domain in their environment. In order to bring users from all domains into SharePoint, we have to configure each additional domain in the MIM (ADMA Management Agent).

This is two step process:

  1. Add the domains in the ADMA Management Agent.
  2. Update the Run Profile for the each added domains.

Add another domain or domains

  • Open the Synchronization Service Manager.
  • In the Management Agents tab (1), select the ADMA Management Agent (2) > Properties (3) > Actions.

  • On this Properties Page:
    1. In the Properties dialog box > Configure Directory Partitions.
    2. Check the Show All check box.
    3. Click Refresh. It will ask you for the password for the ID ADMA.
    4. Now, you will see all the connected domains. In the list of directory partitions, select any domain you want to synchronize (and remember that credentials for these domains may be required).
    5. Click OK to save the Management Agent properties.

Each run profile for the ADMA Management Agent must be updated for each domain that was added. To update your profiles do the following:

  1. In the Management Agents tab (1) > select ADMA Management Agent (2 )> select Configure Run Profiles (3).
