Cross forest sync distribution groups "no trust" RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    Running FIM 2010R2 Build: 4.1.3627.0 on Server 2008R2.

    Mission: synchronize GAL and Distribution Groups between 2 forests. (no trust, Exchange 2010 SP3 - Exchange 2013)

    Frankly new on FIM, but got after a lot of google, GAL sync running. Works great.

    Next on the list is sync distribution groups, but can't seem to find much info.

    Is this possible with FIM? Can someone please push me in the right direction?

  • Yes it is possible and quiet easy too.

    Here is a guide to Group Management.  Remember, the SG and DL management is tied to AD, not Exchange.

    As far as trust, that is not required.  All you need is a Service Account in the forest\ad where the groups live to add\remove\update objects.  When you create the MA, if you cannot resolve the Domain Name, simply enter the IP address instead.
