Install the Directory Synchronization Tool (DST) on a Windows Server operating system in your on-site messaging environment. To install the 9.1 version of the Directory Synchronization Tool, click here (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=153911).

The installation instructions in this section are for new installations only. If you are upgrading from a previous version, please see Upgrade to DST 9.1.

You can find download information for the DST from the Hosted Filtering Administration Center, on the Information page (Resources Link). Download the installation file for the DST to a computer running a Windows Server operating system with full administration access to your Microsoft Exchange environment. For many companies, this means downloading directly to the Exchange Server. Ensure that you are logged on to your server with an account that has the appropriate permissions to install and run applications on the server. An account that is a member of the Domain Administrators group is usually sufficient.

Open the downloaded file and complete the installation wizard. When you have completed the installation process, the DST will open automatically.

If the DST does not open, you can start it manually by clicking Start, point to All Programs, point to the Microsoft Directory Synchronization Tool folder, and then click Directory Synchronization Tool.
