Deploying MIM 2016 into a domain that already has FIM 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

     I'm looking at deploying MIM 2016 into an AD that already has FIM 2010 R2. We'll just be using MIM for SSPR initially but will look to expand it out later to include user self service. I have a few questions:

    1. Is it supported to install MIM 2016 into an AD that already has FIM 2010 R2 installed? Note, we don't want to upgrade the existing FIM install, but rather setup a new deployment. Currently FIM 2010 only does some self service functionality and SSPR. We're planning on using different OUs for MIM 2016.

    2. I'd like to use a single SQL server with 3 SQL instances for MIM sync DB, MIM service DB and SharePoint - can I use 3 different SQL aliases on the same SQL server? I'm wondering if I'll have any issues with port mappings...

    3. I'm planning on using the classic sync rules configured in the AD MA to import AD users rather than rely on the portal to do this, I'd be interested in hearing people's thoughts on the merit of the portal for AD synchronisation rules (from my point of view it seems to only add complication).

    We're not planning on using the SCSM/SSIS reporting functionality at the moment, but may do later. I'm guessing we can't import the existing FIM SSPR answers into MIM 2016 without an upgrade... 

    Thanks in advance!

  • 1. Yes, no problem.

    2. Three instances is fine. Just be mindful of I/O contention and memory allocation across the three instances. The aliases are created on the MIM servers themselves.

    3. Classic rules is fine - we use them in many cases.

    You're correct you can't take the SSPR data from FIM over to MIM. The answers are salted with the ObjectID GUIDs of the individual users.


    Thanks,
