MIM 2016 and SharePoint 2016 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    SharePoint 2016 no longer has a 'Foundation' version, so:

    - is there a deployment guide for MIM 2016 SP1 and SharePoint 2016?

    - which SPS 2016 version do we deploy?

    - how is the SPS 2016 licensing handled now?

    Cheers,

    SK

  • I have the same question.

    SharePoint 2016 seems to be supported for MIM 2016SP1

  • Hello Shim/alexiszp,

    Below is the answer to your questions:

    1. Yes, the deployment is almost exactly the same as deploying SharePoint 2013 except for the compatibility level needs to be set to 15 instead of 14 when running the SP PowerShell. Use the following guide: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-identity-manager/deploy-use/prepare-server-sharepoint
    2. Standard or Enterprise will work
    3. MIM 2016 does not include a license for SharePoint 2016. Using SharePoint 2016 will require a license.

    Also, I can confirm that the MIM 2016 SP1 installation works on SharePoint 2016 with SQL 2016 and Server 2016.

    Thanks.

  • Hi,

    Thank you for the answers.

    However, the MIM Portal requires SharePoint, just as it requires SQL....I would have thought Microsoft would have included a license for SharePoint as it does for SQL.

    This is going to be a problem for some customers.

    cheers.

  • Yes it does cause a problem, so to avoid the extra cost they can keep to using SharePoint 2013.

    I'd double check your licensing as normally you don't get a license for SQL with MIM.

  • Hi,

    Can someone from Microsoft confirm the SPS2016 and SQL2016 licensing requirements when using MIM2016?

    Thank you

    Unless you're using Windows Server 2016, in which case SharePoint Foundation 2013 is not supported... you can get it working by hacking a bunch of things.

    I'm not Microsoft, but would suggest that neither SharePoint 2016 or SQL 2016 licenses are included with MIM 2016. The good news is, your MIM 2016 server license (not Service CALs) is included with your Windows Server license, so there's one less thing to pay for.

  • Is it a server licence or CALs?
