After you convert the Other directory to Active Directory over LDAP or Active Directory (Integrated Windows Authentication) and associate it with a VMware Identity Manager connector, the VMware Identity Manager connector is used to sync users and groups from your enterprise directory to the converted directory. You must stop user and group sync from AirWatch to the VMware Identity Manager directory.


  1. In the AirWatch console, navigate to your Organization Group.
  2. Navigate to the Groups & Settings > All Settings > System > Enterprise Integration > VMware Identity Manager page.
  3. Click the Delete button at the bottom of the page.


The directory conversion is complete. Users and groups are now synced from your enterprise directory to the VMware Identity Manager service by the VMware Identity Manager connector. Users can continue to log in and access their applications.


The domain name displayed on the login page may be different after the directory is converted if the domain name is different from the domain NETBIOS name. With AirWatch sync, the domain NETBIOS name is displayed. With VMware Identity Manager connector sync, the domain name is displayed.
