Exchange 2010 and Exchange 2007 FIM 2010 R2 Galsync without domain or forest trust RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am looking for a solution using FIM 2010 r2.

    1. Please let me know if it is possible to sync gal across 2 forests 1 exchange 2010 SP3 and 2nd Exchange 2007 SP3.

    2. Do we need to create any sort of domain or forest trusts.

    3. Do we need create VPN tunnel Connectivity between 2 forests.

    4. Do we need to setup FIM servers in both the forests.

    5. Do we need to setup FIM server in DMZ.

    6. MIM 2016:- Can it be used with Exchange 2007 for GAL SYNC.Exchange 2010 and Exchange 2007 FIM 2010 R2 Gal sync without domain or forest trust

  • 1. Yes

    2. No trust needed - you use a service account in each forest with appropriate rights

    3. There will need to be connectivity from the FIM server to the remote AD forest - there are a numebr of ports - it will be in the documentation.

    4. No just the one FIM server in either foreast

    5. No you never put FIM in a DMZ

    6. Haven't done it myself but as MIM Sync is pretty much unchanged from FIM Sync I don't see whay not.

  • Hi Carol.

    Thanks for your replies.

    As far as i have checked the documentation it looks like we have to open 389 and 636 ports for connectivity.

    Is it possible to sync the GAL over the interent e.g. using UAG/TMG/2012 R2(WAP) etc.

    Also, what would be the licensing cost for the same if we use only sync with connectors across forests.

  • Ports info here (is still applicable)

    As for licensing -- well if you only use sync it is included in your Windows Server license (As of April). Still need to pay for your windows server license and SQL license.
