Schemus - User synchronization failed. Update abandoned

One of my customers who utilises Symantec Cloud email and web filtering was experiencing an issue with the Schemus synchronisation tool when synchronising Mail Address, Groups and Users to Symantec Cloud.

The error they were experiencing was:

User synchronization failed. Update abandoned

  • syncdata.sus
  • groups.sus
These files are located in the following directory:


In our case it was:


To fix this problem, first close Schemus.

Next rename or move these files to another location.

Lastly reopen Schemus and attempt another sync, these files will regenerate.  After making this change Synchronisation is now working correctly.
