MIM 2016 Database Setup RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

     We're about to deploy MIM 2016. My DBA wants a single SQL cluster to host the MIM sync, MIM service and SharePoint DB all within the same instance using different DB names. I'm not a big fan of this as I suspect the sync and service account permissions will get more privileges than needed, in addition I suspect there'll be issues with SQL agent jobs needing to renamed and other issues.

    Has anyone installed all the MIM DBs into a single instance and is it supported?

    In addition, we're looking at using the MIM SSPR plugin, if I use a DNS alias, is there any configuration in the client addin which communicates directly with the SQL DBs? I believe not as the client (I think) talks directly to the MIM service.

    Thanks in advance
