Set the interval between synchronization retries for Password Synchronization

This policy setting allows a Password Synchronization administrator to configure the interval, in seconds, between synchronization retries in the event that a synchronization attempt fails.

If you enable this policy setting, the specified retry interval in the policy setting is used by all affected computers that are running Password Synchronization.

If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, individual computers that are running Password Synchronization use the synchronization retry interval specified on the Configuration tab of the Password Synchronization Properties dialog box.

Note: Valid values for the interval between retries are whole numbers from 1 through 600. The default value, if the policy setting is enabled, is 120.
