If you performed a custom installation and did not install the Active Directory driver on the Metadirectory server, you have two options:
Install the Remote Loader (required to run the driver on a non-Metadirectory server) and the driver files on a non-Metadirectory server where you want to run the driver. This is the method you should use if you do not want to install eDirectory and Identity Manager on the server that has Active Directory installed on it. See Identity Manager 3.6.1 Installation Guide.
If you decide to use the Remote Loader and install it on a member server, you must configure the driver to use an SSL connection between the Remote Loader and the Identity Manager server. For more information on how to set up an SSL connection, see Identity Manager 3.6.1 Installation Guide.
