Description

Set the criteria to identify folders that should not be synchronized in the background for users with mobile accounts. These group policies allow you to specify a string that identifies files and folders to skip during synchronization:

  • Use theSkip items that start with policy to skip items that start with the specified string.

    The string should not contain the slash (/) character.

  • Use the Skip items that end with policy to skip items that end with the specified string.

    The string should not contain the slash (/) character.

  • Use the Skip items whose name contains policy to skip items that contain the specified string.

    The string should not contain the slash (/) character.

  • Use the Skip items whose name is policy to skip items that exactly match the specified string.

    The string should not contain the slash (/) character.

  • Use the Skip items whose full path is policy to skip all items the specified directory.

    For example, if you specify ~/Library, no items in ~/Library directory will be synchronized.

  • Use the Skip items whose partial path matches policy to skip items with a partial path that matches the specified string.

If you enable any of these group policies, click Show, then click Add and type a string, for example Users or /Users,~/Library, then click OK.

These policies require the Enable/disable background synchronization rules policy to be enabled.

Note:   When the Access Manager console is running on Windows 2000 SP4 or Windows 2003, this policy cannot be set to disabled. This problem is corrected if Service Pack 1 or later is applied to the computer on which the Access Manager console is running.

Once any of there policies are enabled, they take effect when users log out and log back in.
