Installing the Synchronization Tool

We recommend that you create a portal account specifically for use with the Synchronization Tool. This approach helps to avoid any changes being made to the account that may interfere with the synchronization process, e.g. password changes. The account must be a global administrator account. For further considerations and system requirements, review the following topics:

To install the Synchronization Tool

  1. Ensure that all other applications running on the computer are closed, before you start the installation process.

  2. Start the installer.

    For Windows systems, click the executable file that you downloaded from the portal.

    For Linux systems, open a terminal, ensure that the execute permission is set on the installer file, and run it. For example.

    $ chmod +x
    $ ./
  3. In the Welcome dialog, click Next.

  4. In the License Agreement dialog, read and acknowledge the agreement, and click Next.

  5. In the Select Destination Directory dialog, choose the directory in which to install the tool, e.g. C:\Program Files\Schemus. Click Next.

  6. In the Select Start Menu Folder dialog, choose where you want to launch the Synchronization Tool from; the Start menu for Windows, and Symlinks for Linux. Click Next.

  7. In the Select Configuration Directory dialog, select a destination for the configuration settings. The settings are the types of synchronization that you want to perform - email, users, and groups. If you are upgrading to a later version of the Synchronization Tool, you can choose to keep your existing settings or create new ones. If you want a number of users to be able to run the tool, we recommend that you store the configuration data in a shared directory. Click Next.

  8. In the Office 365 modules dialog, select the Office 365 source modules that you want to use. Note that you can only select these sources if your system satisfies the requirements.

  9. In the Information dialog, read the release information for this version of the Synchronization Tool. Click Next.

  10. Click Finish to exit the setup wizard.
