  • Hi,

    yes, as far as Microsoft products go, FIM/MIM is the way to go. Other solution include DELL Quest Migration Manager for AD, BinaryTree etc.

    Do keep in mind, however, that a password cannot be read from AD, not even as hash. Therefore you can't sync *existing* passwords. You will need a password filter agent (part of MIM or any other identity synchronisation solution) installed on each on every DC in both forests to capture and sync the cleartext password when it gets changed by the user.
