One way user sync from one AD to another AD RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am pretty new to FIM & I want to know if there any step-by step instruction to achieve One way user sync between 2 active directores using FIM 2010. I need the users to get synchronized. When I creat a new user in one AD the same user should get replicated in other AD

    This is what I intend to do.

    Pull users from Forest A to Forest B. Its a 1 way Sync Forest A -----> Forest B.

    Apreciate if i can get any help

  • I am looking for the same solution. I had to rename our domain name and now i have to keep two domains alive for some time. When i create accounts in the old domain i would like to sync those accounts with the new domain. i cannot create trusts becaus i have the same NET Bios name and it cannot be changed.

    I am seriously thinking about deploying FIM and would like to know if this is possible. I learned so far that you can do inbound and outbound synchronization but i understood that it is only between FIM and the AD DS.

    can anybody share more about a solution?

    thank you.

  • For your purpose you can synch data between AD using synch engine only and you don't need FIM service and portal. Just a synch engine. Hey - for your purpose even IIFP will do :) - for exchange some Pshell might be required, good thing is that it is free: Out of support but it will work within the boundaries of its limitation. What you will need is to create some simple provisioning code which will create \delete objects in the target forest and configure attribute flows to synchronize attributes between them.
