The Directory and Resource Administrator 6.5 Installation Guide states that the Microsoft Loopback Adapter is required. Is this true?
Directory and Resource Administrator 6.50
The Directory and Resource Administrator (DRA) 6.5 Installation Guide incorrectly lists the Microsoft Loopback Adapter as a requirement to install the Administration Server. The Microsoft Loopback Adapter is only required on a machine that is not connected to a network such as a laptop setup for testing purposes. The Installation Guide for DRA 6.4 and prior correctly lists the Microsoft Loopback adapter as a note and details a specific instance when the loopback adapter is required.
The version 6.6 release of the Directory and Resource Administrator Installation guide correctly lists the Microsoft Loopback Adapter as a note instead of a requirement.
Note: If you install the Administration server on a computer not connected to a network, you must run DCPROMO.exe and make the computer a domain controller. You must also install the Microsoft Loopback Adapter. The "Network Path Not Found Error 53" message can indicate the Loopback Adapter is not correctly installed.
