Using roaming application data folder

Postby Support » Tue Nov 28, 2006 1:04 pm


By default, LDAP Administrator uses local application data folder for storing its configuration files, like metabase and schema cache. Such behavior can cause problems for those using roaming profiles in their network.


  • Open registry editor (Start->Run->regedit.exe)
  • Navigate to or create registry key
    • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Softerra\LDAP Administrator 3\Settings - for version 3.x
    • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Softerra\LDAP Administrator 4 - for version 2008.x/2009.x (aka 4.x)
  • Create a non-zero DWORD value here called EnableApplicationDataRoaming
You can use HKEY_CURRENT_USER registry hive as well if you want to change application data files location only for specific uses.
In case both registry entries are used, value from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE has a priority over value from HKEY_CURRENT_USER.


The method descried above applies only to Softerra LDAP Administrator version 3.4 (build 1700) and higher.
