Specifies how often the User Replicator synchronizes with the Active Directory directory service.

The following syntax is simplified from Managed Object Format (MOF) code and includes all inherited properties. Properties are listed in alphabetic order, not MOF order.


class MSFT_SIPUserReplicatorSetting
  [key] string Backend;
  [key] string InstanceID;
  boolean RegenerateCookiesNow;
  uint32 ReplicationCycleInterval;


This class does not define any methods.


The MSFT_SIPUserReplicatorSetting class has the following properties.


Data type: [key] string

Access type: Read-only

Must be empty when accessing data from Edge Server or Proxy Server roles. Required when accessing data from any role that belongs to a pool.

The computer name (either the FQDN or NetBIOS name) and SQL Server instance name of the Office Communications Server 2007, back-end database (configuration data is stored in the same SQL instance as user data, but in a different database). Indicates where this class is stored, which varies depending on the server role.

Empty string


Data type: [key] string

Access type: Read-only

A GUID value that uniquely identifies an instance of this class. The GUID must be encapsulated between the "{" and "}" braces; for example: "{01234567-0123-4567-89AB-CDEF01234567}".


Data type: boolean

Access type: Read/Write

Required. Provides a method to resynchronize all user information from all SIP domains by forcing User Replicator to perform its initial cycle data synchronization.

When set to true, User Replicator immediately performs an “initial cycle” synchronization in which all change list data is synchronized with the Office Communications Server SQL database, as opposed to the normal incremental synchronization. After completing the synchronization, the value of RegenerateCookiesNow automatically reverts to false. For this reason, setting RegenerateCookiesNow to true is more similar to performing a one-time method call than it is to setting a property value.

If false, the cookie is regenerated in the normal manner and on the normal schedule that is implicitly set by the value of ReplicationCycleInterval.

The default value is false.


Data type: uint32

Access type: Read/Write

Required. The number of seconds between attempts by the User Replicator to synchronize with Active Directory.

The minimum value for this property is 5 and the maximum value is 86400.

The default value is 60.


This class gets and sets information at the following level(s): SQL.

Only one instance of this class can be present in the pool.

Using RegenerateCookiesNow can be useful for recovering from certain error conditions, the most common being when users are incorrectly enabled for Office Communications Server and are consequently not represented in the Office Communications Server SQL database.

Instances of this class support the following interface methods:

Provider::EnumerateInstances(); Provider::GetObject(); Provider::PutInstance();

Where PutInstance() supports the following flag(s):



Server: Installed on computers serving the following role(s): Administrative Tools Server, Front End Server, Proxy Server.Namespace: Defined in \root\cimv2.
