If you are after a point and click method to synchronise AD users with some recommended practices such as tag deleting and an audit report please have a look at Metacoda Identity Sync Plug-in. For some technical detail and a screencast demo of it in action, have a look at http://platformadmin.com/blogs/paul/2015/07/synchronizing-sas-platform-identities/

We use the Metacoda Plug-in in both our SAS VA and SAS Grid environments for Active Directory Synchronisation.
It works like a charm and provides reports on users added, deleted etc. The interactive user interface is easy to use and provides everything that you need to understand AD groups and SAS Roles.
It is a "must have" for any SAS environment that synchronises with Active Directory.

Thanks @WouterG for sharing your experiences. We're pleased to hear you find the plug-in useful.
If you register for a free 30 day Metacoda Security Plug-ins evaluation you can try the Identity Sync Plug-in. There is some detail relating to licensing on our website and we can discuss this further offline.

Can i get a step by step guidance on how to implement AD with SAS VA, I'm very new to SAS and tried to understand the coding part but I couldn't crack it, where to run it and few blogs saying to use "sasmod_users.sas" and others "importad.sas" which approach I've to follow for successful implementation.
