Some key pointers:

  • As soon as you install the tool go into your Services, locate the Authentic8 User Synchronization Service then stop it and set the start type to Manual.

  • Check out the attached sample configuration file and use it as a guide to build your own domain-specific config file.

  • Make sure to take full advantage of the a8usersync.exe -dryrun feature to review the output and determine exactly what users are going to be synced.

  • Start the Authentic8 User Synchronization Service... and set the startup type to Automatic (delayed).

  • Once your configuration is setup and all your users are loaded be sure to set breakermode=true to prevent accidentally deleting all of your users with any future config file edits or accidental mass security group edits.
