The Enterprise Administrator credentials that you supplied are not valid. Supply valid credentials and try again.
CAUSE
This issue may occur if you entered incorrect credentials on the Active Directory Credentials page of the Directory Sync Tool Configuration Wizard.
SOLUTION
To resolve this issue, follow these steps:
  1. Make sure that you provide credentials for an account that has enterprise admin permissions for your company's local Active Directory installation.
  2. Make sure that you enter the correct user name and password for the user account.
  3. Make sure that the computer on which the Directory Sync Tool Configuration Wizard is installed can communicate with your company's domain controllers and can authenticate to the local Active Directory.
Note The account must have enterprise admin permissions in the Active Directory forest to which the computer that's running the Directory Sync Tool Configuration Wizard is joined.
