If there are multiple inactive Contacts with a same User ID and we run pdm_ldap_sync command to activate the Contact, which Contact will be synchronized and activated?


CA Service Desk 17.1 and higher


Service Desk Manager does not determine by attributes which Contact is activated.

When the command pdm_ldap_sync is executed, all Contacts that match a SQL query sent by the command will be returned, and synchronized in order the data was returned from a database serer. If the option "force_unique_userid" is installed, only the first Contact returned from the database will be activated and the rest of them will remain inactive due to the duplicated User ID.
