Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Jeff Adkin, and welcome to my course, Getting Started with MIM 2016. I'm an author at Pluralsight. Microsoft Identity Manager 2016 is the successor to the popular Forefront Identity Manager 2010 that allows you to manage your entire domain from a single portal. It also allows users to be able to self-manage their accounts, groups, and team member accounts to save time and money on the IT departments. In this getting started course, we're going to be installing MIM 2016. Some of the major topics that we will cover include, installing SQL, installing SharePoint, installing MIM 2016, and setting up syncs between MIM and Active Directory. By the end of this course, you'll know how to install MIM 2016 and its requirements. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with Active Directory Users and Computers, as well as installation of Windows Server 2012 R2. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn Microsoft identity management, with the Getting Started with MIM 2016 course, at Pluralsight.

Understanding Microsoft Identity Manager 2016
Hi, and thank you for joining me for the course, Getting Started: Microsoft Identity Server. What we're going to be doing in the next set of videos is we're going to talking about understanding Microsoft Identity Manager 2016. My name is Jeff Adkin, I'm a Pluralsight author, feel free to follow me @JeffAdkin, or check out my website at JAdkin. com. Now as we go forward, you're going to see us a lot. We're gong to spend a moment and do a quick summary of what we're going to be going over. So in the next set what we're going to be going over is, what is MIM 2016? We're going to spend a moment, we're going to talk about what it actually is. And from there, we're going to talk about how it actually works. The last thing we're going to be doing, before we go and we start jumping in and building stuff, is we're going to talk about the servers and the demos, to make sure you know exactly what we're building, so that when I jump in and I start building, you can follow along. Okay, let's stop right here, and go forward, and we'll talk in a moment about what is MIM 2016.

Preparing the MIM 2016 Servers
Hi, and welcome back. What we're going to be going over in this module is preparing the MIM 2016 servers. So my name is Jeff Adkin, I'm a Pluralsight author, feel free to follow me @JeffAdkin, or check out my website at JAdkin. com. What we're doing in this one is we're going to just spend a couple of moments, look over a summary of what we're doing in the module, we're going to be doing this in every single module, just to know exactly what we're going to go over. Let's go over that right now. So for our summary, the first thing that we're going to be doing, is we're going to be creating MIM accounts. These are going to be all the service accounts that we're going to be using afterwards when we do the installation, and the setup, and configuration. From there, we're going to turn around and we're going to create the MIM groups. Same thing, except for the MIM groups are going to allow us to have all these pre-groups already sitting there for us, so we can add administrators, we can add joiners, browsers, whatever we need to do. Now the good news here is, we're going to do both of these in ADUC, and we're going to do them in PowerShell. That way you can just pick whichever way you want to go. Now from there, we're going to turn around, install the MIM prerequisites. Now the good part here is, it's very straightforward, very fast for us to do, and we're kind of done for everything we need to do to set up the MIM server. But, to be able to install MIM, we also need a couple of other things. Well, one big thing, and that's the back end. So we're going to have go after SQL, and SQL's going to take two components. We're going to have to install the SQL prerequisites, and then of course, we're going to have to install the SQL server itself. And once we've got all five of these done, all of our prereqs, and the setups, and everything, are completely set to go, and we can head after setting up MIM and SharePoint, and so on. So let's get these knocked out right now, shall we? Let's go head after creating MIM accounts.

Preparing the MIM 2016 Portal
Hi, and welcome back. What we're going to be doing in this module is Preparing the MIM 2016 Portal. My name is Jeff Adkin, I'm a Pluralsight author. Feel free to follow me @JeffAdkin, or check out my website at JAdkin. com. So what we're going to do right now is we're going to go through a quick summary. We're going to talk about the four main things we're going to be doing to make sure that the MIM Portal can actually be installed. So the first thing we're going to do, is we're going to install the SharePoint 2013 prerequisites. Make sure that that's all installed, and there are quite a lot of prerequisites that have to be installed. Luckily, there's also a tool that'll do most of it for us. From there, we're going to go over installing SharePoint 2013. Now once that is installed, and all the bits are installed, and we go through the wizard to configure it, well that leads us to the next piece we're going to do, which is creating the actual portal. Now when I say creating the portal, we're not creating the MIM Portal, we're basically just creating a blank area that the MIM Portal can be installed on. Last, but not least, we're going to go over some final configurations that have to be done inside of SharePoint, to make sure we can host the MIM 2016 Portal. Okay, all that being said, let's get in there.

Installing MIM 2016
Welcome back. Well, we've finally made it. We went through a lot of steps, but we're finally at the ability to install MIM 2016. And that's what we're going to be doing throughout this entire module. My name is Jeff Adkin, I'm a Pluralsight author, feel free to follow me @JeffAdkin, or check out my website at JAdkin. com. Now like we've always done, we're going go through a quick summary, and we're going to talk about the five key things that we're going to be doing in this module. Now, right off the bat, the first thing that we're going to do, is we're going to add MIM group memberships, and we're going to set up some SPN's. Now, the SPN's we're setting up aren't the same as the Kerberos SPN's we set up previously. And the membership, we're going to talk about that as soon as we get to it. So these are two things we have to do right off the bat, to make sure that we can turn around and install MIM 2016. From there, we're going to spend just a couple moments and we're going to talk about the FIM Service. From there, we're actually going to go in and install the MIM Sync. And finally, after all that's said and done, we're going to get in and install the MIM 2016 server. Last thing we're going to do after we have that installed and everything's there, we're going to the Management Policy Rules. So we're actually going to jump into the portal that's been created, we're going to go over to our Management Policy Rules, and we're actually going to create a policy inside for there. Well, I shouldn't say create a policy, we're going to change a policy. Alright, we know exactly what we have to do, let's go get it done.

MIM 2016 Synchronization and Azure Hybrid
Thanks for joining me again. What we're going to be doing in this module, is going over MIM 2016 Synchronization and Azure Hybrid. My name is Jeff Adkin, I'm a Pluralsight author, feel free to follow me @JeffAdkin, or check out my website at JAdkin. com. So let's go over a quick summary for what we're going to be doing. So, right off the hop, the first thing that we're going to do, is we're going to go create the MIM management agent. Now, the MIM management agent is us actually creating a synchronization set. We'll talk more about that right when we jump into it. We're also going to be creating an AD management agent. Remember when I said these agents kind of go in between for the connectors? So we need one, of course, for our MIM side, and one for our AD side. We also need to create run profiles. How are we going to do this? Are we going to do full syncs? Are we going to do specific deltas, and so on? And last, but not least, what about our rules? When we create our synchronization we have to have rules behind them. When we've completed that, we need to initialize the environment, basically give it that first synchronization. And, we're going to talk about hybrid reporting, and we'll get more on that as soon as we hit that portion. So for right now, we've got exactly what we need to do, so let's go get it done.
