Directory Sync Pro uses a browser-based user interface. We recommend using Chrome v48.0 (or newer) or Firefox v44.0 (or newer) for the best browser experience.
The browser Download settings should be configured to ask where you want to save the files before downloading.
Directory Sync Pro do not validate the password policies present within your domains. Verify that the password entered as the Default Password complies with the password policy of your target environment. Objects will fail to be created if the password violates that policy.
This guide includes the steps for installing Directory Sync Pro. The installer creates a local group on the Directory Sync Pro server named BTDirSyncPro and will add the currently logged in user to the group. Other users or a Domain group can be added to provide access to other users.
It is recommended to select “SQL Server Authentication” during the Directory Sync Pro server console installation if multiple people will be accessing the Directory Sync Pro web user interfaces. Otherwise, if “Windows Authentication” is chosen during installation, create a security group in AD and assign DB Owner rights to the Directory Sync Pro SQL databases and add all the users that need access to the console as members.
Download the installer executable file from the FTP site and save it on the Binary Tree Windows Server.
