For this procedure, in Metaverse Search, you can disconnect a connector object in a connector space from a metaverse object. When you disconnect a connector object, you prevent import and export attribute flow between the connector object (now a disconnector) and a metaverse object until a join rule is reapplied. To complete this procedure, you must be logged on as a member of the FIMSyncJoiners security group or the FIMSyncAdmins security group .

To use Metaverse Search to disconnect a connector object
  1. On the Tools menu, click Metaverse Search.

  2. In Search Results, click an attribute.

  3. On the Actions menu, click Properties.

  4. In Metaverse Object Properties, on the Connectors tab, click the object that you want to disconnect, and then click Disconnect.

  5. In Disconnect Object, to prevent join and projection rules from being applied during subsequent synchronizations, select Explicit Disconnector, to allow join and projection rules to be applied during subsequent synchronizations, select Disconnector (default).


Once an object is disconnected, to reconnect the object between the connector space and the metaverse, you must use Joiner to join the object, and then run the management agent with a run profile of Full Import and Full Synchronization mode.


To perform this procedure, you must first search for an object and at least one column in Search Results must be populated. If you have performed a search, but you do not see a populated list in Search Results, you might need to configure additional columns so that they appear in Search Results. For more information about configuring search result columns, see See Also.
