Changing sync up interval
By default, the interval to synchronize with LDAP is 1440 minutes. You can modify this to have synchronization happen more often. To do this:
  1. Log in to the IWSVA server using SSH as “root”.
  2. Edit the LdapSetting.ini file using the following command:
    vi /etc/iscan/commonldap/LdapSetting.ini
  3. Look for the “SyncInterval” parameter and set it depending on how often you want it to synchronize.
    For example, enter “60” for one (1) hour. The parameter should appear like this:
    # sync interval between local and ldap servers in minutes
    # by default, the sync interval is 24 hours
    # it will disable auto sync if set value to 0
    SyncInterval=60
  4. To apply the change, restart the IWSS authentication daemon using the following command:
    # /etc/iscan/S99ISAuthDaemon restart
Forcing synchronization with LDAP
  1. Log in to the IWSVA server using SSH as “root”.
  2. Navigate to the commonldap folder using this command:
    # cd /etc/iscan/commonldap/
  3. Use the tool to force the synchronization:
    #sh LdapSyncTool.sh
  4. To apply the change, restart the IWSS authentication daemon using the following command:
    # /etc/iscan/S99ISAuthDaemon restart
