Setting up a pilot for Exchange Online Archiving following the instruction here: http://community.office365.com/en-us/wikis/sso/357.aspx And I've ran into a problem at the step 6c that says I need to use the DirSync machine.. umm I haven't seen anyhting about a Directory Sync tool download and installation anywhere.

I did google and installed a Microsoft Directory Synchronization Tool.. but it's wanting a sign in.  I closed out and browsed to the program files folder but there is no file named "dirsyncconfigshell.psc1", and opening Powershell and trying to manually add-pssnapin Coexistence-Organization , the snap-in isnt installed on the machine.

So now I'm lost as to the correct DirSync tool I should download and install.

Do not install the Directory Sync tool on the same computer that has Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) 2.0 installed on it.
