    I am using MIM 2016 and for provisioning AD I use a MPR / Set / Workflow. The MPR is set for transition in triggering the workflow

    In the workflow I have used some MIMWAL including Generate Unique Values (for accountname) and Function to populate WorkflowData parameters (vAccountName, vHomeDirectory)

    In the workflow I then use an update resources to set the Target/AccountName to the workflowdata/AccountName value 

    In the sync rule I flow the AccountName to sAMAccountname and also the WorkflowData/vHomeDirectory

    The problem I have is that any value that is set through a Workflow parameter when used in the sync rule has a final value of null

    Have been over everything several times and tried different ways but still the same issue. 

    I do need to set these values in the workflow as opposed to the sync rule directly so looking for the solution more so then a workaround please

  • 02/01/17--03:43: PCNS error
  • Hi,

    We are using Forefront Identity Manager to sync 2 Active Directory domains.

    Let's call it DomainA and DomainB. A FIM server has been installed in the DomainA. Users and groups are synced between DomainA and DomainB, all works great.

    Now we want to use password sync from B to A. As mentioned in, PCNS agent has been installed on all domain controlers for B.

    Password change from DomainB (which does NOT hosts FIM Server) to DomainA = error.

    We have configured FIM as explained, created a SPN entry on DomainB and target.

    But when a password is changed on DomainB, it is captured by PCNS, and send to the FIM server (domainA) and the errors occurs :  Status is -2146893053 -  The target is unknown

    On server side, we can find this log : An error has occurred during authentication to the password notification source.

    0x80070534: no mapping between account names and security IDs...

    Indeed, when configuring spn, we created on domain B

    setspn.exe -a PCNS/server.domainb.local DOMAINB\MIMSync which may be unknown on domain A.

    What should be the way to sync password when the FIM server is not in the source domain ?

    I'm syncing GAL's between two Exchange organizations and I'd like the contact in each Forest to have something appended to the Display Name so they stand out.  Is this possible to do?

    My current FIM 2010 RTM installed on server 2008 and CA's are 2008 R2.

    I use FIM CM only.

    I have Installed new CA's hierarchy (2012 R2) and copied the certificate templates settings as I needed.

    I plan to upgrade to FIM 2010 R2 SP1 on server 2012 R2, from what I could find, the upgrade is supported. but I couldn't find any other documentation about side-by-side migration since I want to install the FIM 2010 R2 SP1 on a fresh vanilla server 2012 R2.

    I have several questions regarding the desired configuration:

    1. I need to Install FIM RTM on the vanilla server 2012 R2 before installing the FIM 2010 SP1? any documentation/guidelines for FIM upgrade process and DB upgrade will be much appreciated!

    2. after the FIM upgrade to 2010 R2 SP1, I'm planning to change the Certificate Template in an existing smart card Profile Template, this certificate template will be from the new (2012 R2) CA's hierarchy. after I will do so, I will be able to renew smart card certificates through this "updated" profile template?

    I hope I'm understandable :)

    thanks in advance!

    I have a task to manage user accounts and assign/revoke a licenses for Office365 users.

    This is my first expirience with such integration, so, as I understand I need to do 2 main tasks:

    1. Import current licensing information

    2. Assign and revoke licenses with information regarding user plans in metaverse.

    So, now I'm trying to make first part to work.

    I get this article:

    and trying to run full import run profile, but I getting this error:

    DN is unavailable / missing-anchor-value / No value provided for anchor attribute

    In this thread

    I found what the problem can be in import script, but script already have a such statement ($obj2.Add("objectClass","LicensePlans")), so I think that this is not a problem.

    Any ideas?

    I can't seem to find any information regarding delegating access (RBAC) to Skype for Business across a forest trust ("bastion forest"). Have anyone of you tried this and succeeded? 

    Just creating a PAM group of the CsAdministrator group does not work (the group membership is listed by whoami /groups as expected when logged on) and I don't see an equivalent of Microsoft Exchange's "LinkedForeignGroup". 

    Any tips, thoughts or ideas?

    We need to build somehow a connector filter rule to filter on a Date attribute.

    The oob basic criteria option has things like Ispresent, Startswith Equals and so on. Nothing like IsAfter IsBefore.

    I understand we need write code in the FilterforDisconnection Method... but where is an example? Hunted all over with Google and Bing but no luck.

    Has anyone an example I can use as a basepoint?

    I am using the script from the following link, with the variables set to my environments.

    Technet Script

    Everything seems to work until the last part "Import-FIMConfig" where it fails due to the following error message at the bottom of this post. I know it has something to do with the account I am using (called FIMInstall) but I can't figure out where it does not have permissions to do this. I have read elsewhere to check the MPR "Security Group Management: Users can create Static Security Groups" and make sure FIMInstall is listed under the Requestors "Specific Set of Requestors". There is a group there, which FIMInstall is confirmed in. This MPR is also enabled. Screenshots below. 

    Any ideas what I am doing wrong? I tried running Powershell as Administrator and as FIMInstall and get the same message regardless.

  • 02/03/17--12:44: LDAP query to Xpath filter
  • We are doing a conversion from a system that uses LDAP queries for setting dynamic groups, is there a way to convert these queries into Xpath filters easily, or do I have to do it manually for the groups?

    I know that the languages have similarities, but have yet to find a way to easily do it for the 7000 groups I am converting

    Can somebody explain some MPR logics?

    I have MRP (Transition In) + Workflow for AD provisioning users. They are using sync rule with Initial flow for password generation for users and emails to manager with account information. I’m using a set with static defined user set (with employeeID numbers)


    As I understand if I make “Disable” and “Enable” at MPR I will get reapplied MPR, right? Moreover, all my users will receive new passwords and managers will receive emails. This is not acceptable, because system is going to production.

    I need to change my test static set to “All People” production set, how it can be safely done? Thanks!

    So, we are running a C# code with MIM 2016 SP1 using FIM 2010 Granfeldt Workflow Activity Library.

    The code itself should work because it works with FIM 2010 R2 and also FIM 2010 R2 updated to MIM 2016 (not SP1).

    Are there any known compatibility issues between MIM 2016 SP1 and FIM 2010 Granfeldt Workflow Activity Library?

    See the error messsages:

    I was attempting to add a basic text box, bound to an attribute I've mapped to the Group objects ("groupType"), to the group creation RCDC.  All I did was copy the existing Description control, paste that under the Description control and change the "description" values in the new control node to my new attribute "groupType".  But, when I imported the new RCDC, my new control showed up in the RCDC, like I expected, but the MembershipType control disappeared. I went back to the original RCDC (I exported and saved it off before I started changing it).  My "groupType" attribute is gone, as I expected, but so is the MembershipType control. So, I'm stuck. I don't know what to do to get those three radio buttons back. I've restarted IIS, rebooted the MIM server, and still no membership type control on the RCDC.

    Any ideas?

    We are planning to upgrade from FIM 2010 R2 to the latest version of MIM. We are mainly using FIM Synchronization service and the database server is currently on SQL Server 2012.

    Is there official support for MIM to work reliably with the latest service pack of SQL Server 2012 (currently SP4)?

    This link ( lists SQL Server 2012 SP2 for the MIM Sync database.

    Does that mean that only SP2 and HIGHER service packs of SQL Server 2012 are supported by MIM?

    Or, does this mean that only SP2 and LOWER service packs of SQL Server 2012 are supported by MIM?

    All Microsoft support for SQL Server 2012 SP2 and older has already ended in 2017, including extended support. SQL Server 2012 SP4 still has extended support.

    I am wondering if it'd be safe to upgrade SQL Server to 2012 with SP4 and use it for in-place upgrade to MIM.

    Best regards,
    Radu Popa

    Hi ,

    I am not good in FIM,but in my environment I have found an error for one of the Active DirectoryMA Sync. The error is "ambiguous-import-flow-from-multiple-connectors". What I could see when I went to preview is that below . I can't understand why the error comes.

    Can anyone familiar with FIM explain me how the value  below related with the issue and what is the fix for this ?
