The NoAD mode is an alternative to configuring the SyncTool with Active Directory Group Policy.

To use SyncTool in NoAD mode, you must have installed and configured User Environment Manager in NoAD mode. SyncTool inherits the NoAD installation settings from User Environment Manager. You then need to configure general SyncTool settings and network detection settings in the NoAD.xml file that you created while configuring User Environment Manager. For details about installing and configuring User Environment Manager in NoAD mode, see the Installing and Configuring VMware User Environment Manager Guide.
