We are pleased to announce that we have released three new Connectors for FIM2010R2 for public General Availability.
This Connector can be used in scenarios not supported by DirSync, for example multi-forest or non-AD. We still recommend to use DirSync as the primary solution to synchronize AD to AAD and use it whenever possible. The Connector comes with sample code and configuration for a resource/account-forest scenario. For more information, please refer to the TechNet documentation: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=330371.
Before you install the Windows Azure Active Directory Connector, you will need to download and install the Microsoft Online Services Sign-In Assistant.
This Connector will allow you to connect to an LDAPv3 compliant directory. It currently supports the same LDAP directories (IBM, Novell, and Oracle) we ship with FIM2010R2 and will over time replace the built-in LDAP Management Agents. For more information, please refer to the TechNet documentation: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=270179.
This Connector will connect to the SharePoint User Profile Store and can be used as a replacement for the built-in synchronization engine which comes with SharePoint, for example in mulit-forest or non-AD scenarios. For more information, please refer to the TechNet documentation: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=331344.
