Some organizations need DirSync to synchronize with their Office 365 tenant more frequently than the default 3 hour interval.
Fortunately, this is easy enough to change.
- Navigate to the installation directory for the DirSync tool:
C:Program FilesWindows Azure Active Directory Sync
- Edit this file:
- Search for the line
<add key=”SyncTimeInterval” value=”3:0:0″ />
- Change the value to reflect the interval you’d like to use. The default is 3:0:0 which is every 3 hours. Changing it to 0:30:0 would result in a synchronization every 30 minutes.
- Save the file
- Restart the Forefront Identity Manager Synchronization Service service.
