Is FIM the right Product? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have recently merged with another company and need to be able to have user and exchange information shared across the two forests. At the moment there is 2 way trust or federation is not an option. FIM appears to be a product that would allow us to sync users between the two environments and also sync the GAL?

    Am I on the right path? Can anyone point me towards some success stories?

  • Hello,

    Yes FIM allows you to sync users between referential (AD, SQL, LDAP, ...) and also yes, FIM can sync the GAL.

    I have no "success stories" to point you, but the product is design to do it!

  • This is totally doable and I have done this before.  You need to have credentials from each domain to make this work inside of FIM as well as have the appropriate ports open in the firewall to communicate with your target forests.
