Dropbox AD Connector Question

New member | Level 2

The only way I can get this to run is as AD\Administrator. Trying to run this as a account in the AD\Domain Admins group fails. How is everyone else running theirs?

Re: Dropbox AD Connector Question

Hey there @JustynK

Welcome to the Dropbox Community! Let's see what we can find.  

Have you checked out this article on the Dropbox Active Directory Connector and the steps to set up? 

If you have, could you let us know if you are you getting any specific error messages when the setup fails? Sending us a screenshot of it (without any personal information) would be really helpful!

Keep us posted!

Thanks. It installs fine. However when I run the Config as any other user BUT AD\Administrator it fails.  I was curious how other people were running AD Connector.

 

Here is a copy of both errors from my event log
