Office 365: 64 bit Directory Sync Tool

If you have or are looking to deploy directory synchronization with Office 365 you now have the option to deploy the tool on 64 bit Windows Servers.  Prior to this release it was only possible to run the directory synchronization tool on 32 bit Windows Servers.

To download the new tool:

  • Log into your Office 365 administration portal
  • Click on the Users link on the left (under the management heading)
  • Click on the link next to Active Directory synchronization located towards the top of the page.  If you have never setup AD Sync in the past you will click on the Set up link.   You will now see the option to download either the 32 bit or 64 bit version of the directory sync tool.

If you are upgrading from the 32 bit to the 64 bit version of the directory synchronization tool please read this post on the Office 365 community forum.
