The Sync sources must consist of one or more instances of the following directory or proxy servers with PingDataSync:

  • PingDirectory Server and PingDirectoryProxy Server 3.0.5 or later
  • Nokia 8661 Directory Server
  • A Sync destination of any type

You should not configure PingDataSync to interact with backend source servers through a load balancer. You can use PingDirectoryProxy for this configuration instead, assuming you are using PingDirectory servers as your backends.


Although the PingDirectoryProxy server and Nokia 8661 Directory Proxy Server can front other vendor’s directory servers, such as Active Directory (AD) and Sun DSEE, for processing LDAP operations, PingDataSync cannot synchronize changes from these sources through a proxy server. Synchronizing changes directly from AD and Sun DSEE cannot be done with notification mode.
