(2016-08-04) Forcing Sync On A Non-Primary ADFS Server When Using WID

Posted by Jorge on 2016-08-04


By default, when using WID, any secondary ADFS server pulls data from the primary ADFS server every 5 minutes (default value). To change the pull interval, it must be changed on all secondary ADFS servers, using the following command:

Set-AdfsSyncProperties -PollDuration <Number In Seconds>

However, if you want to force pull synchronization on any secondary ADFS to source it from the primary ADFS server, there is no default PowerShell cmdlet to do this. You must simply restart the ADFS server on the secondary ADFS server, like for example:

Restart-Service ADFSSRV

Remember that when you restart the ADFS service, you ADFS server temporarily becomes unavailable!

Cheers,
Jorge
