Syncing users from a source AD to a target AD RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm quite new to FIM/MIM and have the following two questions:

    Is it possible to sync data (only users and theirpasswords) from one source Active Directory to another target Active Directory (in a different forest) without installing a FIM portal? Means only installing the sync services. Do I need to configure outbound synch rules? IS this possible without portal and/or coding?

    Thx for help.

  • Sorry, didn't spot that question in your first post...

    Yes, in a standard configuration you would write a little code to provision the new users to the target AD.

    Here's a third party codeless solution you might consider if coding is an issue for you: https://fimmre.codeplex.com/documentation it uses XML control files for provisioning/deprovisioning logic.

  • It's possible to sync accounts and their various attributes using sync service only. 

    However, to sync passwords you'd need to configure PCNS and the passwords would only sync when a user changes their password.
