When an object in the Forefront Identity Manager Synchronization Service database (metaverse) is deleted during outbound synchronization, the link to the connector space object is removed. The synchronization process uses the deprovisioning rule to determine what to do about the disconnector object in the connector space. If the deprovisioning rule for the management agent is configured to use a rules extension, the synchronization process calls the Deprovision method.

To disable a user account in Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS), set the userAccountControl attribute of the user account to the following constant:

Const ADS_UF_ACCOUNTDISABLE = &H2 ' Disable user account.

const long ADS_UF_ACCOUNTDISABLE = 0x0002; // Disable user account.

For more information about the user account control constants, go to the MSDN Library and search for the topic “ADS_USER_FLAG_ENUM”.

The following examples show an implementation of the Deprovision method for deprovisioning a connector space object. If the connector space object is a disabled user account, the connector space object is moved to a different container. For user or group objects, the connector space object is deleted.
