You can configure a data import scheduler so that changes made to DNS and DHCP configurations in your Microsoft environment are regularly imported into Address Manager, ensuring that the information in Address Manager is relevant and up-to-date.



  1. Under User Name, enter the username of the Gateway user that will be used to import data into Address Manager.
  2. Under Password, enter the password of the Gateway user that will be used to import data into Address Manager.
  3. Under Cron Details, enter the frequency that the scheduler will run.
    The scheduler configures a Cron task regularly import data into Address Manager. The values entered in the Cron Details fields must comply to Cron syntax.
  4. Click Schedule to enable the configured schedule.
Once you have enabled the schedule, a message appears indicating that the scheduler was successfully configured and BlueCat Overlay for Microsoft starts importing Microsoft DNS and DHCP information into Address Manager.

You can click the Job History button to download a CSV file that contains a summary of the scheduled import including a timestamp of the import, the API response code, and the associated message for the import.
