I am trying to accomplish this but with an IDM 3.5.1 system when I clear
the attribute and delete the state_*.xml file on the remote loader the
system is synchronizing User add events from a long time ago.

The customer had an issue with the AD account having Domain admin
rights so I sent them a copy of the document section that talked about
setting specific rights needed. They missed the part about setting the
read synch rights. So they havent been seeing changes coming from AD
for months. They called me and when I looked into it and found out what
was wrong it started to synch everything that was not synched for the
last few months. They wanted to start over from this point forward.
when I followed your instructions though it isn't just synchronizing new
events its grabbing system accounts that were created when the AD domain
was first built and that havent changed at all and trying to send them.

What else am I missing?
