SharePoint 2016 - provide licenses for MIM Synch Service and documentation for running two way synch and enrichment via BCS
While testing SP2016 I wondered what will be the path for users currently using the buitl-in FIM version. Apparently you can use MIM synch service. But please add to SP2016 a license grant to use MIM synch service and proper documentation how to configure. Otherwise the removal of FIM (which for sure had its issues) w/o adequat substitue will just be a degeneration of the product.
Ok, good to read that MSFT made that happen. Though: Does the Solution file being on Github mean I would not get any Premier Support for that case in case I'd need some? (for FIM scenarios, as powerful as they were sometimes that was not avoidable)

Use of the MIM Synch service does not require a special license. The MIM Synchronization service can be downloaded from the Volume Licensing Center -- you should have access if you have purchased Win Server 2012 licenses.
