In the Add New
Synchronization connection window, we will need to fill-in several fields.
In the Connection Name
field enter a descriptive name of your connection, such as AD Synchronization.
In the Forest name field
enter the FQDN name of your domain (in my example: ad.local). Leave
the Auto discover domain controller option selected.

Confirm Password,enter credentials for the synchronization account

Now click the Populate
Containers button and select your AD organizational units you would like to
import. I’ve selected NetPro and Users OU’s where I usually store
all my users.
Synchronization Connection – AD Container selection
Click OK and after a
while you should see your newly created connection listed. We can add
additional properties now, to tell the UPS Service that we do not want to import
AD accounts that are disabled. In my experience this is often requested by clients, so I propose
to make it a default for your setups.
Scroll over your connection name
and expand the menu using the black arrow on the right, then select Edit
Connection Filters option.
Filters option under Synchronization connection name
Right now we need to add
exclusion filter for users that are disabled. You need to choose userAccountControl
attribute with Bit on equals operator with filter value 2.
See the screenshot below for the exact config you should perform.
configuration that would prevent importing disabled user accounts
Click the Add button – you
should see your newly created filter listed now. Click the OK button and
go back to the User Profile Service settings window.
