update MIM server from version 4.4.1237 to the latest RRS feed

  • Question


    Hi all,

    I need help around a MIM 2016  RTM v4.4.1237 upgrade project. Unfortunatly the current version we have can't be upgraded and was replaced by Microsoft with another build. I need to know which is best for this scenario. Is there an actions checklist to go through in such a migration ? What is best ? Uninstall/Reinstall (in chich case, I guess we'll lose all our MA defined rules ...) or Install the newest version on a new separate server ? Thanks. Any help would be much apreciated.

  • Hi,

     I think v4.4.1237 was an early RTM version with errors. It's officially not supported upgrading from this version.

    MS later released .1302 which resolved the problem.

  • Hi Thank you all for your answer,

    could you tell me if backing up the 2 MIM databases (MIM service & MIM Sync) would allow to be able
    to "find or restore" all the configuration --> including the management agents <-- after uninstalling old version and while installing the new version and linking the install wizard to the existing databases ?

    We're trying to elaborate a full migration flow.
    Thanks in advance.

  • The version number is recorded in the database, so probably not. However you should be able to install a new solution and migrate the config using standard methods. You would have to re-import the data and re-do your joins - if the solution is properly designed and the data well maintained this should not be a major issue.

    If that's all going to be too traumatic then it's possible MS might have a sneaky database script or something - you'd have to raise a support call to find out.
