Same error is received when adding a new authentication source in the Intellisync Admin Console


The password of the user that is specified during the install has an ampersand (&) in it.  Change the password for the user or specify a different account.  Ampersands will work during normal operation, it is only in the authentication server setup that the problem occurs.
