    I am seeing this error message
    Microsoft.MetadirectoryServices.UnexpectedDataException: An authoritative Microsoft.MetadirectoryServices.Impl.CSEntryImpl-object in GalPolarCircle with  DN CS GalPolarCircle user CN=Janson\, Philippe,OU=CA,OU=Galsync,DC=testforest,DC=kcitest,DC=com attempts to join when it should be projected.  There is another authoritative object representing the same entity in the metaverse: CS GalSyncTeknor user CN=Janson\, Philippe,OU=MIS,OU=Programmes et Services,OU=GP,DC=teknor,DC=com. This object will not be propagated to any other forests until this conflict is resolved by removing or modifying one of the objects so that they no longer collide.  Also Microsoft Identity Integration Server will try to maintain these objects if it has the permissions and may rewrite the attributes unless appropriate action is taken.

    Accepted Solution

    I found the source of the problem:
    When creating a Management Agent, when you select one specific for GAL synchronisation, you cannot use manual Connector Filter for contacts and groups. You have to leave it to "Rules extension". There is probably a way to do the filtering directly in the rules extension but I have not find it.
    So removing the "Declared" filter and changing it to Rules Extension fixed the issue.
