If you have seen the announcement of the three newly released Connectors for FIM2010R2, there is some more news in the technet documentation…
The Windows Azure Active Directory Connector for FIM 2010 R2 Technical Reference requires FIM 2010 R2 hotfix 4.1.3493.0 or later (2906832).
That requirement refers to a new KB article, announcing FIM Hotfix build 4.1.3496.0: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2906832
Microsoft has announced the release of three new Connectors for FIM2010R2 for public General Availability.
Windows Azure Active Directory Connector
This conector can be used in scenarios not supported by DirSync, for example multi-forest or non-AD.
Microsoft still recommends 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.
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.
SharePoint User Profile Store
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 multi-forest or non-AD scenarios.
