Support-Info: (DATABASE): What SQL Server is hosting my FIM/MIM database

The purpose of this blog is to provide the registry keys that identify where the FIM/MIM Databases are located.  The complicated one is going to be the SharePoint 2010, 2013 User Profile Sync Service, as that one is compiled into a DLL that hosts that information.

Here are the registry keys:

FIM SERVICE DATABASES
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\FIMService

APPLIES TO:

  • Forefront Identity Manager 2010 / R2 / R2 SP1
  • Microsoft Identity Manager 2016 / SP1
