Before you install the PingDataMetrics Server, you need to configure the servers you will be monitoring: PingDirectory Server, PingDirectoryProxy Server, and PingDataSync Server. The PingDataMetrics Server requires all servers to be version 3.5.0 or later. See the administration guides for each product for installation instructions.

Once you have installed the Directory Proxy Server, you can use the dsconfig tool to make configuration changes for the PingDataMetrics Server. When using the dsconfig tool interactively, set the complexity level to Advanced, so that you can make all the necessary configuration changes.
