I was wondering if I need to update FIM 2010 that comes with SharePoint 2013? There are some patches available here and the version I have is 4.0.2450.51, which is even below the RTM version. My SharePoint 2013 farm is on Jan 2018 CU, so I assume I cannot blame our update sluggishness for outdated FIM...


No, you never patch FIM directly. Only apply SharePoint cumulative updates. Those will patch the built-in FIM instance as required.

  • That's exactly what was my own understanding, thanks for confirmation! – arax28 Feb 5 '19 at 17:35
