How to install ad sync on domain controller



ADSync is a utility consisting of multiple components used to synchronize local active directory objects with Hosted/Cloud Active Directory objects. ADSync utility v4.3 will sync Multiple OU's in a client\local AD with Hosted OU. The tool runs in the background, and does not include a GUI or web interface. You configure the settings in this tool using a properties file, and then check the log files to see details about what was changed, or to troubleshoot any errors.

The AD Sync to Zoom tool supports only the following set of attributes:

First Name

Last Name



After the initial full synchronization between your AD server and Zoom, you can set up a Windows/Linux CRON job to launch the tool on at scheduled intervals or you can launch the tool manually. This saves time by updating your Zoom account only with the AD changes that occurred since the previous synchronization.

System Requirements:

Supported only on 2012,  2016, and 2019 (64-bit) 
15MB disk space


  • A single Active Directory Domain name
  • Internet connectivity
  • You must install the AD Import agent before you install the AD Sync agent.
  • Your JumpCloud AD Sync Connect Key provided during agent download.
  • A standard domain user with the required delegated controls must be present for the AD Sync agent to work properly. These permissions may be added to the existing domain user account setup during AD Import installation or a separate service account may be created for this purpose. Don't give this user a username of JumpCloud or add them to the JumpCloud security group.

To use the AD Sync to Zoom tool:

  • Install Oracle JDK version 8, then run the following command to make sure that java is installed correctly:
  • java -version
  • Obtain the file from the following location:
  • Unzip the file.
  • Update the file, as described in the Configuration section.
  • Test your configuration by running the following command:
  • java -jar adtool-[version].jar test
  • If the test was successful, you will see a Success message on your console. You can also check the syncresult.yyyy-mm-dd.log file for the messages Zoom account setting is OK and AD account setting is OK.
  • This command does not make changes to your Zoom account.
  • Start a full sync by running the following command:
  • java -jar adtool-[version].jar full
  • Caution: Running this command can delete or deactivate existing users from your Zoom account if those users do not exist on Active Directory. Refer to the Zoom account configuration: zoom.full.delete.missing.users
  • Check the syncresult.yyyy-mm-dd.log file to verify that the job was successful and to see the changes that were made to the Zoom account. Check the sync.yyyy-mm-dd.log file to see the debug information if any errors occur.
  • Periodically run the following command to sync any changes that occurred since the last time the tool was run:
  • java -jar adtool-[version].jar diff
  • Zoom recommends that you automate the execution of this task using a task automation tool such as Task Scheduler or CRON.
