Source anchor

Hi All,
i had a look at this article

at "Changing the sourceAnchor attribute" section it say. The first point say
The sourceAnchor attribute can only be set during initial installation. If you rerun the installation wizard, this option is read-only. If you need to change this setting, then you must uninstall and reinstall.
later in the article it has section "How to enable the ConsistencyGuid feature - Existing deployment".

Is that conflicting ? It say the sourceanchor attribute cannot be change, to change it has to be reinstalled and later it say how to change the sourceanchor attribute in an existing deployment !!

    Hi @channaveera Swamy KM , AD Connect supports changing source anchor from object guid to ms-DS-consistencyguid in an existing deployment. If you want to change source anchor to anything else, then a reinstallation is required.
