  • It looks like there is a 6635.0043 version available now.

  • We are running DirSync tool on Windows Server 2003 32-bit, using Windows Powershell 1.0.

    Can we upgrade to the latest DirSync tool in this environment? Do we need to upgrade PowerShell to 2.0 before upgrade DirSync tool?

    Thanks
