Definition of Blocking Record

A Blocking Record is data communicated from one password synchronization server (A) to every transparent password synchronization server (B, C, ...) on a network.

The Blocking Record indicates that (A) is actively engaged in synchronizing passwords for a given user (U), and that transparent password synchronization servers (B, C, ...) should ignore any events that would otherwise trigger transparent password synchronization for that user (U).
