GeneralThird party hell... Pin

So I work for Client X.
Client X works with third party A to do their system administration.
They also have a Microsoft Dynamics application which is managed by third party B.
I'm in a project with third party C who does the communication with party B (which is basically everything this party does...).
So now I need a file sync to get files from Dynamics into Azure.

We did this a few months ago, so I called A and they somehow installed it on the Domain Controller Confused | :confused:
So we need to change that now, but party A knows nothing about Dynamics and they want black on white that they can install it on the server that's running Dynamics.
But none of us know anyone at party B and getting party C into this would mean there are two additional people between B and me Cry | :((
Meanwhile, Client X just wants us to fix this, but has no idea what everyone is up to.
I currently have someone on site (party D, if you like), and party A has two people on site.
With the application manager and the IT manager you'd think we should be able to do something today...

My guess is that once we know which server is the right one we need to install updates in order to install the Azure File Sync, which requires a restart, which isn't possible during business hours.
That would mean they'd have to restart the server tonight and we'll have to continue this on another day when they're on site again.
This has been going on for two weeks now.
It seems I'm finally getting my DNS records today though.[^]

Installing the file sync and adding the DNS records should be less than an hour work... Cry | :((
