When a new monitoring site is create using WATO it was intended to set the option "Sync with LDAP connections" to make the site not perform an LDAP sync on it's own.

We assume that new sites will be added as WATO slave site in most cases. In this scenario you normally don't want to let the slave sites synchronize on their own because the synchronization would produce pending changes on the slave site. These pending changes will prevent future synchronizations from the master site and need to be confirmed manually on the slave site to be able to sync again.

In previous versions the new sites were configured to synchronize with LDAP on their own by default. It's recommended to change this option to the intended default.

However, there are scenarios were it makes sense to set this option to also perform the synchronization on the slave site with either all configured LDAP connections or just some connections.
