The properties of an Active Directory object that are synchronized by DirectoryLink can be selected in Services > DirectoryLink > Settings.

Note: Synchronization of passwords occurs only during the password reset operation. For this reason, any existing user passwords that were set prior to installation of the DirectoryLink service will not be synchronized. Please instruct your users to reset their passwords after installing the DirectoryLink service. Make sure Active Directory passwords meet default password requirements

Here is the list of properties to sync that could be selected for Users, Distribution Lists and Contacts:
