  • Question

  • Dears,

    I have a question about MIM 2016, currently I am using Sharepoint 2013 as my intranet solution, can I deploy MIM 2016 to use the existing Sharepoint infrastructure?

    Thanks

  • Surely, you can. But there's no "better performance" or any added value of doing it. I'll say even more - learned from field, that installing FIM Portal over SharePoint Farm distributed between nodes is providing more maintenance than installing FIM Portals over standalone SharePoint Nodes.

  • Costs? You don't need to spend any money, SharePoint Foundation is free and it is completely OK for FIM Portal.

    An yes, you can have these on different servers:

    1. MIM Synch Engine

    2. MIM Service (if you'd use Reporting it has to be here - the same is for MIM PAM)

    3. MIM Portal

    4. MIM Self-Service Password Registration

    5. MIM Self-Service Password Reset

    So if you need to distribute services, nearly all of them can be on separate servers.

  • To be a clear, MIM 2016 is not supported on a SharePoint 2013 deployment/farm.  It's only supported on SharePoint 2013 Foundation, so as Dominik mentioned, there is no cost associated to that part of the deployment.

  • To be honest I want to save cost as Sharepoint is little expensive!

    So can we separate SharePoint from MIM Services' Server? I mean the SharePoint server can be a different Server?

  • is this still the case?

    ...MIM 2016 is not supported on a SharePoint 2013 deployment/farm.  It's only supported on SharePoint 2013 Foundation...
