Question: 

Is it possible to install a newer version of Password Sync Agent to be configured with an older version of Identity Manager?

Ex. Password Sync Agent 12.5 SP8 with IDM 12.5 SP5

 

Answer:

The Password Sync Agent is a standalone component which is implemented as a Windows Password Filter. It will user ldap/ldaps to communicate with the Provisioning Server. The newer versions of Password Sync Agent will send the same format of transactions so you could use the newer Password Sync Agent against the older Provisioning Server.
