    I'm running some experiments with gal sync, and it all works between 2010 exchange orgainizations.

    But when I export (fim run profile) to the exchange 2007 organization, the contacts are created and shows under 'contacts' in EMC, but they cannot be found when search them in ie outlook?

    It works from 2007 to 2010...

    Basic Info


    Exchange 2010 organization One:

    EX1: Server 2012r2/EX2010SP3

    FIM Server: 2012r2/FIM2010r2. There 3 MA's, one for each organization.


    Exchange 2010 organization Two:

    EX1: Server 2012r2/EX2010SP3


    Exchange 2007 organization One:

    EX1: Server 2008R2/EX2007SP3

    After deploying the FIM SCOM MP, the following error was returned:

    The page verify setting for database "FIMService" in SQL instance X on computer Y is not set according to best practice.

    Can someone please confirm whether we can ignore this, or how we need to configure SQL to get rid of this SCOM error.

    Thank you,

    I need to setup a FIM demo environment. There already is a demo environment but that is not maintained.

    Is there a way I can export the production environment (both portal & sync server) to the demo environment?

    Existing config of the demo environment can be wiped.

    I am trying to extend the reporing schema. I have two FIM attributes, integer and unindexed string. Now when I try to map those attributes, I get just this kind of error message when I run Confirm-FIMReportingBinding powershell:

    WARNING: The object/attribute type 'Integer' does not match the class/property type 'int'.
    WARNING: The object/attribute type 'Text' does not match the class/property type 'string'.
    I use "int" and "string" types for those attributes, but thoses types seems to be wrong. What types should I use?

    Hi all,

    I have set up an ECMA2 management agent which should do a full export, full import, delta / full synchronization.

    The run profiles are set up on the one hand as separate profiles each with one single step. On the other hand as one run profile, containing three steps (e.g. Full Export, Full Import (stage only), Delta Synchronization).

    For some reason, when calling the run profile with three steps defined, the WriteImportFile method of the IMAExtensible2FileImport interface seems not to be called. On the bottom line that run then fails with message "no-start-ma". However, when running the according run profile for Import (stage only), which does only contain this one single step, the method is called as expected and no errors occur.

    Did someone already face that behavior and knows how to fix that?

    Thanks in advance

    Change Notes users?

    Change certifier?

    Change name?

    Delete Notes users in Domino?

    Kind Regards

  • 07/06/15--06:21: Bi-directional Sync Rules
  • I am an trying to create new distribution groups with owners and members from FIM portal and later manage the group in AD. I have two management agents FIMMA and ADMA. For the attributes like member, owner etc I have set equal precedence in the sync engine. While I am trying to define rule extension in order to make both import and export work, for the attributes like member, I am getting error: "Defining a rule extension import attribute flow to a metaverse reference attribute is not allowed". Is there any way to avoid this?

    I'm trying to enable some custom logging inside my extention rules. After a ot of search I decided to ask you if it's possible or not.

    For the time beeing I've tryed to approaches:

    1. Add a reference to Logging.dll and then try to use the code:

    using Microsoft.MetadirectoryServices.Logging;
    Log("message", true, 2);

    2. Import a log4net dll into my project, add the configuration to the app.config file.

    None of then seams to work... The log4net.dll doesn't show me the log methods, and with the logging.dll I have the error

     'Microsoft.MetadirectoryServices.Logging.Logging.Log(string, bool, int)' is a 'method' but is used like a 'type'

    Is it possible to do some custom log with FIM 2010?

    Thanks in advance for your help,

    Hi Folks,

    I want to hide the "Advanced Search" link for a particular search scope. Is this achievable?

    I went through this link but this leads in hiding "Advanced Search" for all configurations. Tried customizing it only for a particular search scope but did not work.

    Any suggestions?

  • 07/07/15--07:10: Add new user to an AD group
  • Hi all,

    I'm starting with FIM 2010, and I need to do a procedure that adds all new users (created in the current day) to an AD group (let's saynewUsersGroup).

    In my environment, I have the following connectors: AD MA, AD Group MA (with the respective c# extentions) and a provisionning extention calledMVExtention.dll

    My idea is to search each MV entry and if the attribute CreationDate (a better approach in my case would be read the Connector SpacecreateTimeStamp attribute) is the same as the current date, then add the user to mynewUsersGroup

    I tought that a good idea is to use the MVExtention.dll to do it, but I'm not sure how to do the add the person in a group in this extention. When I'm in my AD Group MA extention, I normally do (where csentry is my group in the Connector Space):


    Can someone please help me with this one?

    Thanks in advance for your help,

    I am trying to put in code to hide terminated users from the GAL using our AD MA

    I have the following code:

    case "msExchHideFromAddressLists":
                    if (mventry["employeeStatus"].IsPresent && mventry["employeeStatus"].Value.ToLower() == "terminated" || mventry["cccEmployeeStatus"].IsPresent&& mventry["cccEmployeeStatus"].Value.ToLower() == "terminated")
                        csentry["msExchHideFromAddressLists"].BooleanValue = true;

    It keeps giving an error that the attribute is read only, or it does nothing at all..

    Any assistance would be appreciated thanks

    This might not be possible, but I am trying to connect a database on MS Access that is linked to an Oracle database, I want to know if there's possible way to connect those to FIM. The main attribute will be the User's ID, and couple other key attributes.
