Add a Merge Operation

You can add a merge operation to a list of existing merge operations.

Important   When you add a merge operation, be aware of the merge operation restrictions involved when merging accounts in Active Directory.

To add a merge to an existing list of merge operations:

  1. Display a list of merge operations on the Review Merging Accounts screen.

    Do one of the following:

    Use Active Directory Account Cleanup Wizard to search for duplicate accounts in Active Directory. The search results display a list of suggested merge operations.


    Select duplicate accounts manually in Active Directory. The duplicate accounts that you select display as merge operations the wizard can perform.


    Import a list of accounts from a .csv file you previously saved. This will display a list of merge operations.

  2. On the Review Merging Accounts screen, click Add.
  3. In the Select Merging Accounts dialog box, select the objects that you want to merge.
  4. Tip   Another way to select accounts is to type the account name in Name box, and then click OK. This displays a list of accounts similar to what you typed in Name.

  5. Repeat step 3 until all of the merge operations you want to add to the list appear under Merging Accounts.
