5 Installation and upgrade notes

This section provides additional installation and upgrade information, including related or third-party product information and any required critical patches.

5.1 Installation notes

Before you install OTDS Enterprise Directory Synchronization, review these additional installation notes and verify related product or third-party product requirements.

When patching Directory Services, it is crucial that the patch is executed from an elevated command line as outlined in the patch installation documentation. Double-clicking the .msp or .msi file through Windows can cause issues.

When installing and configuring OTDS to use Java 8, the “-XX:MaxPermSize=256m” setting is no longer necessary and will result in a warning in the Tomcat logs if it is set.
