MIM installation failure - is Exchange needed? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

     I'm trying to install MIM 2016 on Windows 2012 R2. I've installed the synchronization service and SharePoint (although SharePoint 2013 is a pain to install). I've followed the prerequisite documentation.

    Looking at the log file, the only error messages I've come across are shown below. I'm wondering if Exchange is an absolute requirement for MIM?

    Thanks in advance

  • Exchange/Exchange Online is a requirement for MIM Service, yes, you can't install MIM Service without supplying some Exchange details, though the good news is that you can put in any old details into the installer and it'll install. When the service is running though it'll complain it can't connect to Exchange though and generate event log entries. I commonly don't run Exchange in my lab setups so see a lot of these warnings.

    Your error seems to be related to the Synchronisation Service account though. A quick Google turns this up:

    ValidateSyncAccount

    8193

    ILMSetupUtl

    ValidateSyncAccount

    Validate that the provided sync account is valid and not that of the running user or the FIM service account

    I'd have a closer look at the sync engine service account. Make sure it's as expected.

  • I'm by no means a MIM expert, but I don't think Exchange is a requirement unless you want to do something that would actually involve Exchange.

  • Cheers Jay,

     I've finally managed to get this to install, I had to make a few changes:

    1. Deploy Exchange 2013 (even though installer mentions Exchange 2010)

    2. Install MIM service first
    2b. Then install MIM portal
    3. Use a sharepoint site collection URL of "http://mimportal" rather than http://localhost

    Install worked 

    Next problem is getting is getting a response from http://mimportal - currently says page not found, hmmm

    Must say I've installed FIM 2010 multiple times, that seemed fiddly, mim 2016 has taken a backward step in terms of deployment
