About Google Apps Password Sync
Google Apps Password Sync (GAPS) automatically keeps your users' Google Apps passwords in sync with their Microsoft® Active Directory® passwords. Whenever a user's Active Directory password is changed, GAPS pushes the change to Google Apps immediately.
Important: GAPS never changes your Active Directory passwords; it only syncs Active Directory password changes to Google Apps.
Before you beginGAPS system requirements
- Microsoft Active Directory 2008 or 2012 (AD DS, not AD LDS).
Google Apps requirements:
- Google Apps for Work, Education, or Government, or Google Apps Unlimited.
- GAPS must be installed on all domain controllers.
