We are going to Exchange 2010 next year but we have the Identity Integration Feature Pack for Microsoft Windows Server Active Directory with Service Pack 2 installed.  We are doing a Galsync with a sister company in the UK.   Is this compatible with Exchange 2010?

Step 1   Verify that you are running the previous version of R3 GALSync 2010
On the computer where GALSync 2010 is installed, locate \Program Files\Microsoft Identity Integration Server\Extenions\Microsoft.Exchange.Dirsync.RulesExtensions.dll.
Right-click the file, click Properties, and then click the Details tab.
Under Description, the Product version field should specify 14.00.0482.029.
If the Product version is 14.00.0482.030 or later, you don't need to upgrade. The ProvisioningDomain optional attribute will behave as documented.
If the Product version is 14.00.0482.029, you must upgrade as described here.
If the Product version is less than 14.00.0482.029, you must upgrade from R2
Step 2   Uninstall the current version of GALSync 2010
On the computer that is running GALSync 2010, open the Services snap-in and stop the Microsoft Identity Integration Server service.
Open Control Panel > Programs and Features > Uninstall or change a program.
Select Microsoft Exchange 2009 Exchange Labs Management Agent, and then click Uninstall.
Step 3   Install the new version of GALSync 2010
Download the latest version of GALSync 2010 from the Microsoft Connect Web site.
On the computer where you are running ILM and the current GALSync 2010 configuration, double-click Dirsync.msi. It runs quickly and requires no user input.
In the Services snap-in, restart the Microsoft Identity Integration Server service.
