Greetings hive mind…   Besides FIM/MIM, what are people using for syncing Exchange address books, e.g. between forests?   -gil

Do people  just roll their own, or are there some reliable FOSS PoSh scripts around?

Last time I did it I rolled my own.  It was for four forest and I need crazy regex to clean up and move data between attributes.

Quest Collab Services - how could you forget ;)Binary Tree - can't remember product nameDirWiz - can't remember product nameNetSec GALSync 
we use one of the above and have been considering replacing. we would roll our own but have various challenges from network connectivity or lack of, lack of domain trusts, and separate IT operating entities, etc. that make off the shelf options much more fitting for us since most deal with these challenges natively..

For my clients, we’ve always rolled our own. It’s not a big deal.

 

On the source side, it’s a relatively low privilege operation to gather the data and dump it to a file. Use FTP/FTPS/SFTP to transfer the file to the target.

And on the target, load it to SQL (and you can easily determine only the updates required) or compare it to the local AD and update as necessary. Privilege requirements a bit higher, but can be easily delegated.

 

This can, of course, go both ways.

How many forests?  AADConnect was rumored to do multiple forests, but I never checked to see if it actually did.  That's really for Azure AD Forests to your on-prem. 
What's the bigger picture of what you're wanting to do?  Acquisition?  No O365?

Hi Al,

 

I was curious who the vendors were in that space. We have a generic identity sync tool, and I was thinking about packaging it up for that specific scenario.
