ILM to FIM 2010 Migration. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello All,

    We are planning to upgrade ILM 2007 to FIM 2010 and plan is to use existing ILM database.

    --Restore it to the new DB server with the name “FIMSynchronizationService”,
    --Install FIM Sync, telling it to use the restored DB, and providing the encryption keys,

    This is will be my first time upgrading from ILM to FIM 2010, I have done previously couple of new FIM 2010 installation and upgrade it FIM 2010 R2 with the encryption key.

    As ILM and FIM 2010 ,the platform requirement is quite different and inplace upgrade is not possible, so we are planning to build a new server for FIM rather than in place upgrade.

    I never show FIM 2010 ask for encryption key in new installation in a new server. As we are planning to use the existing database , I need guidance how can i use the encryption key of ILM while upgrading to FIM 2010.

    Kindly share your thought.

    Regards,
    Raja Village

  • Raja,

    The FIM install should ask for this at the very end of the installation when it says it is configuring the SQL DB. This should be straightforward. THe only time I don't see encryption key asked for is if I am reinstalling ILM or FIM over the same on same server, there is registry key that is actually searched for to find location of encrytion key. If this is new server, however, that definitely shouldn't exist.

  • Hi Raja,

    The process is pretty much the same as installing second server of FIM in Active-passive environment. So during installation you just have to pick "Use existing database". And, at the end of the installation, you would be asked to provide key file with a standard "Browse" key. So it is nothing unusual or hard.

    Of course make sure you have such key exported before installing new server :)
