  • I'm faced with the same situation.  Documentation is virtually non-existent and am looking for a solution.  Did you manage to do you side by side upgrade to MIM 2016SP1 in the end or did you go with a complete new install?

  • You can't really do a side-by-side upgrade in the sense that both systems are running in parallel since they'll essentially be out of sync right away.

    What you can do is stop all of the FIM services, move the databases to new SQL servers (if necessary), and then install new MIM servers, pointing them to the existing databases. MIM setup will upgrade the databases and preserve all of your state/configuration.

  • Are you looking to migrate both user/group data and FIM config?

    Another approach to consider is to start with a clean install of MIM (greenfields), then migrate the configuration across, and repopulate the data - this way you don't bring across any 'noise' you may have lying around.
