When installing iFolder 2.1 on Active Directory, setup fails when logging in to the iFolder Management Console. - Global settings page with the following error message:
"Unable to add iFolder_ServerAgent to Global Setting LDAP"
This is caused by a strong Password Policy in Active Directory Group Policy that prevents the "ifolder_ServerAgent" user from being created in AD. The iFolder installation creates this user with a short password, so if a strong password policy is in place the install will fail.
SOLUTION: While installing iFolder Temporarily change or remove the password policy in the AD Group Policy.
Reinstate password policy after the installation.
You can reproduce this problem if you configure a Group Policy using following instructions.
Set password length to 10.
Install iFolder 2.1
