Changing FIM server name / MIM upgrade RRS feed

  • Question

  • What's the approach on changing the NETBIOS name of the FIM server (Service, Sync and Portal on the same server)? Can it be done, if it can, what would be the steps to do it?

    I was thinking about changing the name before upgrading it to MIM or would it be better to just create a new server for MIM (with the name in mind) and migrate the old FIM there somehow?

  • in my Experians it's always better to do a new install vs upgrade.

    MIM works better with a new install then a upgrade especially if you have any custom code.

  • What would be the exact steps to perform this? Create a backup of the current Sync and Service DB, place them in a new server and install MIM there? I'm running in a single server configuration.

  • Yes if you run SQL on the same machine, that is the way to do it.
