This should be a quick and easy one - I just wanted to confirm which tableau server process responsible for working on active directory synchronization(both on schedule basic or manual sync).
I was assuming its a piece of work which is done by backgrounder process(backgrounder.exe) however when I am seeing admin view " background tasks for non extract" and then filtered on tasks filter with values as
1.Sync Active directory group
2. Queue active directory group sync
I am seeing few of the active directory group sync happened on the machine where backgrounder. process not even configured.So I am kind of confused.
Below is my server configuration ( it shows machine 343 doesn't have backgrounder process configured )
And below screenshot says ,AD sync happening on machine machine 343
what does it mean ? AD sync is not limited to backgrounder.exe? If yes then which process is responsible for working on this task.
Hi Sunil. While it may be the backgrounder that kicks off the actual synchronization, the work for this happens via the vizportal app process. So if you remote into your server and have a look at the vizportal.log, then you will see the AD sync occurring within here.
