Same Sync Engine Encryption keys when upgrading FIM R2 to FIM R2 Sp1. why? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hellos,

    Just a quick clarification to help me write up the upgrade report.

    I managed to upgrade FIM 2010 R2 to FIM 2010 R2 Sp1 without any issues. It was quite straightforward. However, my brief was to create a report for others describing not just the WHAT but the WHY.

    The first step before uninstalling the FIM 2010 R2 software was to backup database and to save the encryption keys (generated by the FIM 2010 R2 installation)

    These keys were then used by the FIM 2010 R2 Sp1 installation. WHY? Does this mean that the underlying encrypting mechanism has not changed and will unlikely ever change?

  • It would be bad if the mechanism will change, in this case you could not re-use your FIM DB.

    From what I know the mechanism is still the same since MIIS 203, as I have da customer DB which was created at that Version and migrated to all version of the product.
