Install or upgrade AD/LDAP Connector
Updated over a week ago

Overview

To enable communication between your AD/LDAP and inSync, you must establish a secured connection between your AD/LDAP and inSync Master using the AD/LDAP Connector. inSync uses the AD/LDAP Connector only while authenticating and activating inSync Clients. Backups and restores from the end-user devices on which inSync Client is activated will work as usual even if the computer where you installed the AD/LDAP Connector is not available. This means that you do not need to ensure high availability (HA) for the AD/LDAP Connector.
