Is Directory Connector Supported With All Versions of Active Directory?

For clients running the UNLS, any version of Windows XP or newer should work. For servers, please see the table below. If you're running Windows Server 2008 and you've installed it with the strictest security settings, you must disable the signed LDAP security requirement. Microsoft has an article for enabling the feature here, however for our purposes it must be disabled. Here are the steps to disabled this setting in Windows 2008.

How to disable the server LDAP signing requirement

  1. Click Start, click Run, type mmc.exe, and then click OK.
  2. On the File menu, click Add/Remove Snap-in.
  3. In the "Add or Remove Snap-ins" dialog box, click Group Policy Management Editor, and then click Add.
  4. In the "Select Group Policy Object" dialog box, click Browse.
  5. In the "Browse for a Group Policy Object" dialog box, click Default Domain Policy under the "#Domains, OUs and linked Group Policy Objects" area, and then click OK.
  6. Click Finish.
  7. Click OK.
  8. Expand Default Domain Controller Policy, expand Computer Configuration, expand Policies, expand Windows Settings, expand Security Settings, expand Local Policies, and then click Security Options.
  9. Right-click Domain controller: LDAP server signing requirements, and then click Properties.
  10. In the "Domain controller: LDAP server signing requirements Properties" dialog box, enable # Define this policy setting, click to select Require signing in the "Define this policy setting" drop-down list, and then click OK.
  11. In the "Confirm Setting Change" dialog box, click Yes.

You should then run gpupdate /force on the server to update the current group policy.
