LDAP Resync users

Hello,

I have installed alfresco-4.2.c with LDAP authentication against Redhat Directory Server. It works great, however, I have added several new people in LDAP. These people are now showing up in the search. I logged with the account of one of them, but the email is not synced.

I found this article http://wiki.alfresco.com/wiki/The_Synchronization_Subsystem but I can not get it how to make Alfresco read LDAP users in 'realtime', meaning when I add an user in LDAP and then I search in Alfresco for him, it is showing there.

I took a look at /opt/alfresco-4.2.c/tomcat/shared/classes/alfresco/extension/subsystems/Authentication/ldap/ldap1/ldap-authentication.properties and I found this:

# This flag enables use of this LDAP subsystem for user and group
# synchronization. It may be that this subsytem should only be used for
# authentication, in which case this flag should be set to false.
ldap.synchronization.active=true


Should I set this to "false"?


Regards,
