Q: I'm using Azure DirSync; how can I force a synchronization?

A: By default, DirSync will run every 3 hours. However, you can use PowerShell to force a synchronization, as follows:

                              PS C:\Program Files\Windows Azure Active Directory Sync\DirSync> .\ImportModules.ps1                              PS C:\Program Files\Windows Azure Active Directory Sync\DirSync> Start-OnlineCoexistenceSync
