MIM 2016 Sync Installation RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hello All,

    Need Help!

    We are upgrading to MIM sync 2016 in our environment. We have a database deployed in a clustered environment on SQL Server SP1

    Problem is while installating MIM sync service , the moment i provide server name and instance name it gives an attached error.

    The port configured as per the SQL team is 52608 and not the default one 1433/1434 for the DB connection.

    As MIM 2016 is by default use the port 1433/1434, then how can i proceed my instllation.

    Please Suggest.

    What i personally always do is create a SQL alias for MIM to use, which has the added benefit of moving the database to another server much easier. In the alias you can specify the port and the server name.

    You do this by opening the SQL server configuration manager, going to aliases and creating a new one.

    I have added a screenshot for reference:

    Hope this helps,
