Installing New DirSync software ( includes password sync) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    To install the new DirSync software with password synch to I have to uninstall the current version I have installed, or can it been installed over it? If I have to uninstall/install do I need to do anything else to preserve the data already known by FIM?

    I understand the new version of DirSync can now be updated without requiring future uninstall/reinstalls?

  • Hi,

    You can now directly upgrade your Directory Sync tool beginning with version 6385.0012 (released earlier in 2013) without needing to first uninstall your current version.

    If you have a build of the Directory Sync tool that is older than this version, you will need to uninstall the old version, and download and install a newer version.

    You will then be able to directly upgrade that new installation in the future.

    Hope that helps,
