Before starting the Connector configuring process, you should be aware of the following:
Close the Console before starting the installation process. If the Console is open when you are installing a Connector, the program perceives a conflict about which component is adding configuration data to the server and generates an error message.
Windows NT Connectors and subcomponents are installed simultaneously.
You can install Directory Server or Active Directory Connectors on the same machine where you installed Core or you can install Connectors on another machine. (The Windows NT Connector must be installed on the Primary Domain Controller (PDC) of the domain being synchronized.)
If you are installing the Connector on the same machine as Core, the program automatically installs the Connector in the same directory as Core.
If you are installing the Connector on a different machine, the program will prompt you to specify the configuration directory information supplied during the Core installation.
You must run the installation program each time you install a Connector.
For example, if you are installing a Directory Server Connector and an Active Directory Connector, you will run the installation program twice after the Core is installed.
