Sodium Sync

Sodium Sync allows the synchronization of data from one directory server to another using LDAP or X.500 DAP.

For example, this can be used to replicate account information from Active Directory into M-Vault. Key features of Sodium Sync:

  • Synchronization is very easy to set up.
  • A single GUI can be used to access both directory servers and managing synchronization.
  • Simple profiles for common synchronization types.
  • Robust high performance operation.
  • Filtering and data mapping functionality for advanced synchronization.
  • Streamed implementation enables efficient synchronization of large directory information trees.
  • Scheduling synchronizations handled by a background process.
  • Monitoring of scheduled synchronizations.
  • Flexible LDIF support.

M-Vault Connector

A specialised version of the full M-Vault Directory Server, M-Vault Connector is a directory server that supports both LDAPv3 and X.500, and can be used to connect an LDAP-only directory server as part of an X.500 Directory Service and build an integrated directory service, linking together other directory servers (LDAP or X.500) into a coherent single directory service.

Directory Synchronisation

Syncs are configured and scheduled using a Wizard interface which offers immediate access to three common directory to directory sync profiles, four common LDIF transformations as well as access to an Advanced Wizard view giving fine-grain control of the synchronization process.


Sync Configuration

Where a standard sync will calculate changes and apply only necessary changes to the target, this mode will delete the target and fully load each time. Source and target (which can be independently configured as directory, LDIF, CSV or SQL) are compared and changes applied to the target. Sodium Sync enables synchronization between directory servers and other data sources such as files and databases.


Directory Server and System Management

While M-Vault Console is ideal for dedicated monitoring of M-Vault deployments, integration with general purpose monitoring systems is often desirable. SNMP is the best way to achieve this, and M-Vault supports the latest SNMP MADMAN MIBs, specified in RFCs 2788 and 2605. M-Vault Console is used for the creation, management administration and monitoring of one or more M-Vault Servers.
