Microsoft released #MIM2016 Service Pack 1 UPDATE package

Source: https://aka.ms/mim2016sp1upgrade

Since the release of MIM 2016 SP1 just a few weeks ago, Microsoft received significant feedback from the community, their partners and customers regarding the upgrade paths for the service pack.

8th of November, Microsoft announced the availability of the MIM 2016 SP1 Update MSP.

This MSP allows current customers on MIM 2016 RTM, or any hotfix build since 2016 RTM to perform an in-place upgrade to the current build of this MSP (4.4.1302.0).

The supported in-place upgrade scenarios are outlined in the table below. To obtain this update, please click here.

Please note, an updated MSI for new implementations is likely to be released soon.

Carefully check the upgrade paths, as this MSP cannot be applied to build 4.4.1296.0 (MIM 2016 SP1 RTM).

The download page explicitly mentions: “MIM 2016 RTM Versions to update their infrastructure to the latest SP1 Build without complete uninstall. Customers already on MIM 2016 SP1 (4.4.1237) can not install this patch. 

Supported Operating System

#FIM2010 & #MIM2016 Error 25009 fun stuff on #TNWiki

For the FIM Geeks, I’ve submitted some new FIM/MIM 25009 event troubleshooting articles on TechNet Wiki (http://aka.ms/Wiki)

Plus, a page the collects all the 25009 trroubleshooting resources, including lots of fun stuff of Tim Macauly.

If you got more of this 25009 fun stuff yourself, feel free to add your articles and add them to the collection page.

The new #MIM2016 book is out! Must have!

I just got the notice from Packt Publishing today that the new MIM2016  book has been published!
Go check at http://aka.ms/mim2016book.

David Steadman and Jeff Ingalls have been working very hard to create a reference piece of literature, so it’s a must have for your bookshelf.

From the early beginning of the book I’ve been involved in the reviewing, and although it has been a bumpy ride, it has been a great time!

I know my FIM/MIM geekiness/freakiness must have caused quite some headaches to the authors and the publishing project team at Packt, but just be sure it was for the better good.

The ebook version is awful cheap, but I’m going for the paper version anyway as I’m convinced it’s a must have.

So my future FIM/MIM students will have something to look forward to (meaning get their hands on MY copy of the book, … )
