Microsoft Identity Manager - Multi Subnet Failover

Sebastian Pohl 1 Reputation point

Hi Everyone,

i'm currently facing the problem, that i have to administrate a microsoft identity manager, which syncs Mailboxes as contacts between two forest.
Since i'm kinda new to this program i'm failing to configure the sql-server-cluster, which is a multi-subnet-failover-cluster. Whenever a sql-failover happens, MIM stops working (Synchronization stops and within the eventlog some sql-connection errors appear). It then goes to the next step and fails too.

So my question: Where do i configure the multi subnet failover?

I didn't find useful information in the internet. I'm using the sql native client 11 on the machine, which technically is able to use multi subnet failover.

Thank you in advance.

    I recommend reading up on SQL Always ON clusters. MIM supports these and I have used Always ON in a GEO cluster (aka different subnets) with MIM SP2. Other SQL tech failovers and failbacks take too long so MIM has a tendency of going down during those but an AlwaysON cluster does not seem to have this problem
