Question / Problem: 

How to configure LDAP signing for user import/sync?

Answer / Solution: 

MS March 2020 update on AD/LDAP Server will require Clients (like SafeCom Server) to negotiate signing as well.

MS tech community article with further details.

Once the March 2020 update is applied to an LDAP server, a group policy setting on the computer running SafeCom Administrator (or the SafeCom Master used for scheduled user imports) must be configure properly.
