Select Rules for Deleting Items

By default, objects deleted in one directory are deleted in the partner directory. A record of the deletion is stored in a file on the server running ADC. The default location for this file is:

<SystemRoot>\MSADC\MSADC\<Connection Agreement Name>\<Filename>

Exchange deletions are recorded in the Ex55.csv file, and Active Directory deletions are recorded in the Win2000.ldf file.

You can also choose to have the corresponding object deleted.

Caution   Carefully consider the consequences of replicating deletions; for example, you may not want to automatically delete an Exchange mailbox when its corresponding Active Directory object is deleted.

Note   For public folder Connection Agreements, you cannot change any of the deletion options.

To select rules for deleting items:

  1. If you have not yet opened the Connection Agreement in ADC, do the following:
    1. On the Start menu, point to Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Active Directory Connector.
    2. In the details pane, double-click the Connection Agreement for which you want to select rules for deleting items.
  2. On the Deletion tab, under When replicating deletions from the Windows Active Directory, select one of the following:
  3. Under When replicating deletions from the Exchange directory, select one of the following:

    Note   To review the deletions list, open the log file in Notepad, or, for .csv applications you can use a spreadsheet application.

    To update Active Directory with the deletions recorded in the log file, use the LDIF Directory Synchronization Bulk Import/Export tool (Ldifde.exe) found in the <SystemRoot>\WINNT\System32 directory.
