    The SharePoint licenses required for FIM are covered by the FIM licenses.
    There is no need to purchase additional SharePoint licenses just for FIM.

  • Hi,

    FIM is using Sharepoint Foundation so you don't need a separate license for it. It is not being deployed on full blown Sharepoint server. 

    For SSPR specific you are deploying registration and reset sites which are ASP .NET applications and are not based on Sharepoint. Actually you can deploy it completely without a portal :) and configure everything through powershell but administration might be troublesome :). So in your case you will deploy:

    - FIM Portal: installed on Sharepoint Foundation as a base, used for administration and helpdesk unlock operation. 

    - SSPR Registration and Reset portal: ASP .NET apps, not based on Sharepoint.

    Other question is if you deploy only ASP .NET apps for SSPR (not fim portal \ service) on separate box do you need FIM server license for this box? I've never investigated this path (or I've tried and I have not got clear answer).

    Each server on which Forefront Identity Manager software is installed requires a server license. Even if FIM Password Registration or Reset Portal are not running on top of SharePoint Foundation it is still FIM Software.

    I don't know of anything that specifically mentions that SharePoint
    licenses are not required but if you look here:

    http://download.microsoft.com/download/5/4/8/548C1F3D-0816-48D5-8454-2AE1F18DD01E/Forefront%20Identity%20Manager%202010%20R2%20Licensing%20Datasheet.pdf

    You can see that while it mentions SQL licensing, nothing is mentioned
    about SharePoint. I know for 100%  fact that no SharePoint licenses are
    required. If your customer needs more than this then they should contact
    Microsoft for additional confirmation.
