Microsoft Identity Manager installation error “Internal Error 2337. 0, Microsoft.MetadirectoryServices.host.dll”

Today I was doing a fresh installation of Microsoft Identity Manger 2016 with Service Pack 1 into a new development environment. The exact binary is “en_microsoft_identity_manager_2016_with_service_pack_1_x64_dvd_9270854”

Not too far into the installation of the Microsoft Identity Manager Synchronization Server I got the “Internal Error 2337. 0, Microsoft.MetadirectoryServices.host.dll” error as shown below.

Doing a few searches didn’t throw me any bones. I could see that the installation had added the MIM Sync Server Service Account to the Logins on the SQL Server.

I then recalled that there was an updated version that was released just before Xmas (14 Dec 2016). The exact binary is “en_microsoft_identity_manager_2016_with_service_pack_1_x64_dvd_9656597” and you can get the updated Microsoft Identity Manager 2016 with SP1 media here.

Re-running the installation and ….

…..¬†SUCCESS.

Now I’m not going to spend any time trying to figure out was is bad with the base MIM 2016 SP1 media, I’m just going to pretend it never existed and use the latest. Onward and upwards.
