Active Directory Synchronizer

General

 

Entries are created with a *CNF:{GUID} suffix

This is a problem caused by Multimaster replication of directory objects. When there are name collisions, the system automatically renames one of the accounts by appending CNF to indicate conflict resolution, and a GUID which is guaranteed to be unique.

 

There is a command to run to remove these objects, namely repadmin /removelingeringobject, please consult these references for the recipe to follow.
