If you have already deployed a previous version of the DST, use the following instructions to upgrade to the latest version of the tool.

How to upgrade to the latest version of the DST from a previous version of the tool
  1. Log on to the server where you have installed the previous version of the DST.

  2. Run the DST configuration wizard for currently installed version of the tool. Make note of any current configuration settings that you will need in order to configure in the new version.

  3. Close the DST.

  4. Go to the DST download page and download the appropriate tool for your environment. The 9.1 DST and previous versions can both run on the same machine. However, a domain can only be configured in the Administration Center for one upload mode. In order to upload the user information from the 9.1 DST, the user list source should be set to the DST. When using older versions of the tool, the source setting is Legacy Directory Synchronization Tool. For more information about an upgrade configuration, see Configuring Your Hosted Services.

    When moving the upload mode to Directory Synchronization Tool, edge blocking mode must be disabled. Do not re-enable the Directory-Based Edge Blocking until after you validate that a full synchronization has been confirmed as completed.
  5. Change the domain's User List source to Directory Synchronization Tool. When moving to the new upload mode, be sure to disable the Edge blocking mode. After a full synchronization is confirmed move the edge blocking mode back to the appropriate setting of Reject or Reject-Test.

  6. After all domains are migrated to the new tool, uninstall previous versions of the DST by using the Add or Remove Programs feature in Windows Server 2003/8 (click Start, point to Control Panel, click Add or Remove Programs). Be sure to verify you are removing the legacy version of the tool called EHS Directory Synchronization Tool.
