    Hi gents,<o:p></o:p>

    We use FIM 2010 to manage identity lifecycle management in our “secure environment” but lately for business needs, we start to deploy Standalone Active Directory on “isolated environment” and unfortunately for security and operations constraints we cannot manage and sync directly those isolated AD with FIM.<o:p></o:p>

    We think about exporting users db file from FIM to the isolated environment then develop a bunch of scripts to maintain the isolated AD up to date but I am a bit annoyed and wonder if there is a more “gentle” way to do it.<o:p></o:p>

    So I am looking for any kind experience feedback/ advices/ best practices to solve this issue.<o:p></o:p>

    Thanks in advance!    <o:p></o:p>

    Hi Guys,

    At a customer I have an issue with the Lotus Domino Connector whilst trying to rename a Lotus Notes Group.

    When I export the change I get the following error during the export: The given Key was not present in the dictionary.

    I used debugViewer to check if there is any more information before the error and there is none specific.

    The error in the MA is :

    System.Collections.Generic.KeyNotFoundException: The given key was not present in the dictionary.
       at System.Collections.Generic.Dictionary`2.get_Item(TKey key)
       at System.Collections.ObjectModel.KeyedCollection`2.get_Item(TKey key)
       at Microsoft.IdentityManagement.MA.LotusDomino.NotesClientWrapper.DominoGroup.UpdateGroupAttributesByUNID(CSEntryChange csentry, IDictionary`2 schema, Context exportContext, IDictionary`2 deleteInfo)
       at Microsoft.IdentityManagement.MA.LotusDomino.Core.Group.ExportEntry(CSEntryChange csentry, Context exportContext, List`1 listChangeResult)

    The error in debug viewer is:

    [6220] Message: The given key was not present in the dictionary. 
    [6220] Exception root Exception type: System.Collections.Generic.KeyNotFoundException 
    [6220] Source: mscorlib

    [6220] Target Site: get_Item 

    I was wondering if anybody could give me any pointers on how to solve this problem (Maybe a missing attribute,...) I have checked the group exists in Lotus Notes because I imported it from there.

    There is no error on the Lotus Notes side as it does not arrive to Notes.

    I am using Lotus Client 9.0 and domino server 8.6FP6

    My FIM 2010 R2 version is  4.1.3671.0

    My Lotus Domino Connector is

    Any help would be appreciated. I have been trying to solve this problem for a few days now with no luck.

  • Hello!

    Can anybody advice, what to do in such case:

    I have 2 Oracle HR tables


    1. UserID
    2. Division ID
    3. ManagerID


    1. DivisionID
    2. Division Description

    How I can populate user info in MV, if I need to have information about account in such form:

    1. UserID
    2. Division Description

    As I understand I need to use 2 references, but to different objects.

    I can't found such examples is one guide and don't know if it can work.

     I have developed a new custom activity for FIM and deployed it. In the activity UI, we provide three radio buttons to select different options. The activity UI looks like below:

    or Option 1 selection, the activity receives the string Option 1 and so on for other options. Based on that value, we run different business logic in the activity. However, I am facing issues when I select Options 2 and 3. When I select Option 2 or 3, it gets selected and the value received in the activity during execution is also proper. However, when I open the workflow to check what Option we have selected, then the UI always displays "Option 1" though it is sending values for Option 2 and 3 as expected during execution.

    Below is the UI code for the activity:

    public static DependencyProperty ActivityNameProperty = DependencyProperty.Register("ActivityName", typeof(System.String), typeof(CustomActivity));
    [Description("Please specify the target attribute")]
    public string ActivityName
            return ((String)(base.GetValue(CustomActivity.ActivityNameProperty)));
            base.SetValue(CustomActivity.ActivityNameProperty, value);
     static string[] ActivityNames = new string[]
    public class CustomActivitySettingsPart : ActivitySettingsPart
       public override Activity GenerateActivityOnWorkflow(SequentialWorkflow workflow)
           if (!this.ValidateInputs())
               return null;
           CustomActivity changeActivity = new CustomActivity();
           changeActivity.ActivityName = this.GetRadioSelection("activityToRun");
           return changeActivity;
       public override void LoadActivitySettings(System.Workflow.ComponentModel.Activity activity)
           CustomActivity changeActivity = activity as CustomActivity;
           if (changeActivity != null)
               this.SetRadioSelection("activityToRun", changeActivity.ActivityName);
       public override ActivitySettingsPartData PersistSettings()
           ActivitySettingsPartData data = new ActivitySettingsPartData();
           data["ActivityName"] = this.GetRadioSelection("activityToRun");
           return data;
       public override void RestoreSettings(ActivitySettingsPartData data)
           if (data != null)
               this.SetRadioSelection("activityToRun", (string)(data["ActivityName"]));
       public override void SwitchMode(ActivitySettingsPartMode mode)
           bool readOnly = (mode == ActivitySettingsPartMode.View);
           this.SetRadioListReadOnlyOption("activityToRun", readOnly);
       public override string Title
           get { return "My custom activity"; }
       public override bool ValidateInputs()
           return true;
       /// <summary>

           controlLayoutTable.Width = Unit.Percentage(100.0);
           controlLayoutTable.BorderWidth = 0;
           controlLayoutTable.CellPadding = 2;
           controlLayoutTable.Rows.Add(this.AddTableRowRadioList("Please select one option", "activityToRun", ActivityNames, ActivityNames[0]));
       #region "Radio Functions"
       private TableRow AddTableRowRadioList(String labelText, String controlID, String[] radioOptions, String defaultValue)
           TableRow row = new TableRow();
           TableCell labelCell = new TableCell();
           TableCell controlCell = new TableCell();

           RadioButtonList radioList = new RadioButtonList();
           label.Text = labelText;
           label.CssClass = base.LabelCssClass;
           radioList.ID = controlID;
           foreach (String Item in radioOptions)
               radioList.Items.Add(new ListItem(Item, Item));
           radioList.SelectedValue = defaultValue;
           radioList.RepeatDirection = RepeatDirection.Vertical;
           return row;
       private String GetRadioSelection(String radioListID)
           RadioButtonList radioList = (RadioButtonList)this.FindControl(radioListID);
           return radioList.SelectedValue;
       private void SetRadioSelection(String radioListID, String radioSelection)
           RadioButtonList radioList = (RadioButtonList)this.FindControl(radioListID);
           if (radioList != null)
               radioList.SelectedValue = radioSelection;
               radioList.SelectedValue = radioList.Items[0].Text;
       private void SetRadioListReadOnlyOption(String radioListID, bool readOnly)
           RadioButtonList radioList = (RadioButtonList)this.FindControl(radioListID);
           radioList.Enabled = !readOnly;

    Please let know if I have missed anything in the UI code. When the activity reloads, it is always displaying first option as selected.

    We are sending out an email notification to a manager 2 weeks before a contractor is to be terminated.

    The email notification depicts the date/time in UTC...not in the time zone we are in (e.g. UTC -7), but in UTC.

    This has the possibility of confusing people.

    Is there a way to correct this UTC time in the email template to reflect the correct time zone (e.g. UTC -7)?

    Thank you,

    I have provisioned a Criteria based group from the FIM provisioning process.

    Is it possible to populate a Criteria based group with Filter attribute /Person[orunit=345234]. All I am trying to do is set the criteria via the provisoing process of Groups.

    How do I set the criteria ?

    Can I do the following ?

    mventry["filter"].value = "/Person[Orgunit=234123]";

    Its has not worked but can you guide me how to do something like this ?

    I am struggling to configure the MIM 2016 Password Registration and Password Reset features that I managed to install.

    I followed the MIM Deployment guide and I believe I have them on my FIM Service server. mim1

    I want to run all 3 services on same server. MIM Portal (sharepoint port 80)  Password Registration on port 8080 ad Password Reset on port 8088.

    I discover these lines in the old FIM 2010 Deployment Guide:

    "If you are not going to have the password registration and password reset portals extranet facing and wish to install everything on one server, this is supported but there are some things that need to be considered. The first is that SharePoint for the FIM Portal will be using port 80 on IIS, so additional ports will be required for the password registration and password reset portals. Also, if you are installing everything on one machine and are using Kerberos then useAppPoolCRedentials=true will be set because SharePoint runs as a “farm”. If this is true, then the Application Pool account that runs the FIM Password Registration Site and the FIM Password Reset Site will need to have the appropriate SPNs and delegation configured."

    Just my scenario. One machine not extranet facing. BUT nowhere does it describe just what these "appropriate" SPNs and delegations are.

    All over the net there seems to be advice about this topic but no actual examples.

    I followed the MIM 2016 Deployment guide, it is hard to follow and has quite a few anomalies but what I used was:

    Password Registration server:  mim1.mimtest.local    Port 8080

    Pool Account  mimtest\MIMSSPR

    Password Reset server:   mim1.mimtest.local      Port 8088

    Pool Account mimtest\MIMSSPRSVC

    How do I check I am using Kerberos? How do I check the value of useAppPoolCRedentials?

    OK. and what are the appropriate necessary SPN(s) for me?

    Not sure how this happened, but it did.  I have about 300 groups that are stuck in a pending export with a delete-add operation on them.  I tested this "operation" with a low impact group to see if it was actually going to delete it and re-add it.  It did just that.  That's going to be a problem because, if I'm not mistaken, that's going to wipe out the ACLs (permissions) for the group. 

    I need to figure out how to get this to not delete the groups.  Everything is identical between what's in Active Directory and what's in the connector space.  So, there are no changes in any of the group names, DNs, members, etc. 

    I read something about the DeleteAddAsReplace property that would change a delete-add operation to a replace. But, I don't think that's something I can set when configuring the MA. But, I may not be looking in the right place.

    Right now, I have the permissions on those group objects revoked. So, the export can mess with them.  But, I can't leave it like that forever.

    Any ideas would be appreciated.

    Does anyone have a guide on how to do MIM 2016 Reporting with System Center on Prem (I upgraded from FIM 2010 R2 to MIM 2016). I don't want to do cloud reporting, I like the reports in System center and would like to keep using them.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Has anyone seen this behavior?

    I am using FIM 2010 R2 with the SharePoint MA connector against a SharePoint 2016 user profile service. 

    The MA Config wizard connects OK and imports the schema, (I even see our custom profile attributes).  

    But when I run a full import I get "completed no-objects"

    The MA configuration worked fine against another test SP 2016 and against SP 2013.  The only difference I can think of is this profile database was just imported from SP2013.

    If I log in to the Central Administration web site and User Profile Service web site with the same credentials and port I see all 166,000 users.

    I am using MIM 2016 and it is patched to the latest hotfix roll out. Build 4.3.2266.0

    I have created my AD MA. I now want to create an Inbound/Outbound sync rule to provision to AD.

    When I access the scope tab, I can complete the Metaverse resource type drop down and the External system drop down BUT

    when I try to complete the External System resource type .. it just hangs and doesnt show any options, after furious clicks

    I get a popup saying Error in Resource control. But I can complete sync rules for other MAs, just not the AD MA.

    Event Viewer shows,  as a Warning!

    The portal was unable to complete a request and showed a user the default error page.

    An unhandled exception was caught.

    Check the product diagnostic log file and then check the SharePoint log file.

    So which "product diagnostic log file" should I be looking for?

    The SharePoint log doesnt seem to give any information why this error is shown.

    We are wanting to take data from our Oracle database about group owners and apply it to the Owner and Displayed Owner in the FIM Portal. The end goal is to have the initial identified owner take control and be able to assign other owners to manage the group which would then flow to AD. The data from Oracle only is needed to flow the initial owner and then FIM will need to take precedence. There is close to a thousand groups which will need to have the owner and displayed owner set.

    The data from Oracle is a string, based on the users SAMAccountName. When we try to import that attribute the metaverse shows an applied delete. I am guessing that is because it is not a true referenced attribute. I have tried selecting that attribute from Oracle as a referenced attribute but that does not work. I can flow the attribute in as a string to the FIM Portal without issue but I am then not able to get that to flow to the Owner or Displayed Owner as those are referenced. I have tried a workflow to try and make that happen but it does not work unless the FIM attribute is a reference, it will not take a string and translate it. This seems like it should not be to difficult and that someone else would have wanted to populate owner and displayed owner but I can not find much on this topic. I would appreciate any guidance or insights.

    What's the approach on changing the NETBIOS name of the FIM server (Service, Sync and Portal on the same server)? Can it be done, if it can, what would be the steps to do it?

    I was thinking about changing the name before upgrading it to MIM or would it be better to just create a new server for MIM (with the name in mind) and migrate the old FIM there somehow?
