After synchronizing the information imported from all user forests, you export all the information from the metaverse to the central forest. This process is known as provisioning.

To provision the central forest

  1. On the computer running Identity life cycle manager server, start Identity Manager: Click Start, click All Programs, click Microsoft Identity Integration Server, and then click Identity Manager.

    To open Synchronization service in Microsoft Forefront Identity Manager 2010: Click Start, click All Programs, click Forefront Identity Manager, and then click Synchronization service.
  2. Click Management Agents.

  3. Right-click the management agent for the central forest, and then click Run.

  4. Click Export, and then click OK.

After you provision the central forest, you should verify that contact objects have been created for each user object in the user forests. You must then enable these contacts for Lync Server 2010.
