Why full synch after server startup?

After every server startup, a full synch of a LDAP directory is triggered.

As this causes many different issues in our large scale environment, I'd really like to find out why this is done at all. What is a full synch after server startup required for? All information about remote directory is cached in DB, so why doing a full synch again only because server is restarted?

Any answers are greatly appreciated :-)

Hi, in later versions of Confluence there is an advanced setting for "Enable Incremental Synchronisation" that works with your LDAP directory. Without this option, it always does a full synch at regular intervals. Do you have this enabled?

Without it there is no way to tell and will do a full synch.

Yes, we do have "Incremental Synchronisation" enabled. And this is working fine. At every specified interval an incremental synch is done. I am still wondering why full synch is happening after server startup.
