I am trying to replicate my Prod to my Dev Environment,
they are the same build version,
but when I execute the Import-FIMConfig command it succeeds, but the portal is not showing the Sets/MPR/Workflows that I have,
am I missing something, I have restarted my Dev environment, just to make sure its not something I have to restart for or reset IIS for.
So the issue is I am trying to join users using the index on the user table. I have a Stored procedure that will add a user to the table if they do not exist and return there index.
Not sure how to set the returned value to either a DN or attribute, so they can be joined on later. Maybe Im going about this the wrong way?
I have around 50 new advanced IAFs to add to each of three management agents. There's 5 attributes on each on the datasource side so it's taking a really long time to input. Had a look at the lithnetmiisautomation module but it doesn't have anything for
this. I also tried exporting an MA to see if I could alter the xml manually but it looks a bit too complex to do that. Any ideas on how to get these flows in a bit quicker than manually clicking each one?
What is the recommended approach when we have an existing functional AD. We need to import all that data to a new MIM installationfor which the authoritative source of information is HR Feed . How will MIM map the users in FIM portal with the imported users from AD. I believe it should automatically map the user data in metaverse based on objectSID described in the syncrule. Is there any document which can guide for this implementation and any best practices to follow, or precautions to take.
Does anyone have a good article/blog they're willing to share when it comes to best/preferred practices, "do:s" and "don't:s", "gotcha:s" and the like, when it comes to scaling out MIM?

I need to implement GAL Sync for 2 forests running Exchange 2016. I've setup GAL Sync several times for Exchange 2010. It looks like everything is the same except I'm not sure what to do about the "Provision for" box where I typically add the Exchange 2010 URI for Remote PowerShell. Exchange 2007, Exchange 2010, and No Provisioning are the only options. Since this drop down only configures MIM to make Remote PowerShell calls to run Update-Recipient, does Exchange 2016 not require this Update-Recipient call? Or is there something else I need to do for Exchange 2016.
Thanks for the assist!
In a Hybrid Azure AD joined machine environment (where a workstation is both on-prem domain joined and Azure joined- https://docs.microsoft.com/en-nz/azure/active-directory/devices/hybrid-azuread-join-manual-steps) what if we have Azure SSPR configured...will the user be able to perform a password reset from the desktop (like with the MIM SSPR client) where pressing cntrl-alt-delete reveals the 'Forgot my password' prompt?
I have made a flow in FIMMA for manager attribute that flows "Employee ID" of manager from SAP to FIM. If I see stats on synchronization service, it shows that manager's employee id is added. Please see screen shot below.
But when I see on portal, it shows empty manager. Please see screen shot.
Kindly guide me where I am doing any mistake. Employee ID is anchor attribute in source SAP MA.
I am working on a connector where I have implemented Schema,Partition.Hierarchy discovery using ECMA 2.0.
When I am creating the MA from Sync Manager, it goes till the last page and fails in creating the management agent with this error:
The server encountered an unexpected error while performing an operation for the client.
"BAIL: MMS(328): ..\cdext.cpp(416): 0x80070057 (The parameter is incorrect.)

I have used System.Diagnostics.Debugger.Launch() to launch the JIT debugger and stepped through each part of the code and I don't see any exceptions.Here's the MACapabilities implemented in the code:public MACapabilities Capabilities
MACapabilities myCapabilities = new MACapabilities();
myCapabilities.ConcurrentOperation = true;
myCapabilities.ObjectRename = true;
myCapabilities.DeleteAddAsReplace = false;
myCapabilities.DeltaImport = true;
myCapabilities.SupportPartitions = true;
myCapabilities.SupportHierarchy = true;
myCapabilities.SupportImport = true;
myCapabilities.DistinguishedNameStyle = MADistinguishedNameStyle.Ldap;
myCapabilities.Normalizations = MANormalizations.RemoveAccents;
myCapabilities.IsDNAsAnchor = true;
It looks like some parameter is invalid.
Can anyone help me fixing this?

We are still using FIM 2010 R2 (synchronizing between our HR system and AD). I would like upgrade to MIM 2016.
I am not yet planning to use the PAM functionality of MIM, but I want to make sure that the design that I use won't later exclude PAM.
The short version of my question is:
Is it best practice to use a completely separate instance of MIM for PAM? The answer seems a common sense yes, but there is nothing explicit nor implicit.
We have a FIM notification that is sent out when someone is termed. Is there a way to check the frequency of this notification? Would like to find out if it is going out daily or just one time.
Is there a plan to support SQL 2017 in Microsoft Identity Manager 2016' roadmap
I'm experiencing an odd problem with our FIM ADMA when running a delta import delta sync profile. The MA starts to run, imports a few accounts, then seems to get stuck. It will sit at the same number forever, making no progress. It will continue to run until the transaction log fills the disk, at which point it crashes. When examining its activity with the SQL Profiler, it appears to be stuck in a loop, operating on the same objects over and over. It constantly executes the following statements for each user (there are a few thousand users its doing this to, in alphabetical order):declare @p8 uniqueidentifier
declare @p9 int
exec mms_addcslinkbyanchororrdn @objid='7C63436F-E44E-4DD2-A95C-0C41F6CD1EF1',@attr=N'member',@rstate=2,@anchor=NULL,@rdn=N'CN=someuser',@pobjid='8D6C3B01-AE99-E811-8144-005056A453F9',@guidMA='2A1D6392-379A-4E47-ADEC-D592C04C671A',@targetid=@p8 output,@foundByAnchor=@p9 output
select @p8, @p9
Does anyone have any ideas on why this is happening?
Hey all, I've been working with the FIM/MIM synchronization engine for several years but new to the portal. I'm looking to implement a 2-step approval workflow for some of our Security groups. The goal is to first have the requestors manager approve, then the request should flow to the entitlement/group owner for final approval.
So far I have created a workflow called Manager Owner Approval Workflowand I'm pretty sure I have the steps configured correctly. I then created a Set Manager|Owner Approved Security Groupsand modified the Criteria-based Member section to include all groups with the 'Membership Add Workflow' attribute set toManager Owner Approval Workflow. The problem is, how do I update my groups to use my new workflow (as opposed to the default Owner Approval one)? When I try updating my pilot group to use the new workflow it's
giving me an Invalid Syntax error (see screenshot):
Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!
The requirement here is to enable FIM Portal for a bulk group update(Add/remove multiple users in distribution and security groups)
What we have so far is:
1. customize FIM portal with a link is navigation bar for bulk update.
2. defined request based MPR :"Administrators can add or remove users from groups" as
TArget Resource: All groups
Resource attribute :All
3. Another default MPR :Group management workflow: Owner approval on add member
Requestor: All active people without Fim service account
Target Resource: owner approved groups
Resource attribute: manually managed membership
Workflow: owner approval workflow(default)
But still I am unable to perform a bulk update, can you please help me?
Is there a way to enable MFA for MIM Administrators to the MIM Portal?
I need some guidance on how to setup already installed install MIMWAL for Event Viewer Verbose Logging. Which file do I edit and how ?
The guidance on the MIMWAL accessible at the URL below is not too specific on the steps. Appreciate if anyone can assist with/direct to a guidance on how to achieve this.
I have a requirement to setup the GALSync between 2 Forests with 2 -way AD trust, I have gone thorough the link that provides info on the User account permissions - https://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/4868.permissions-for-galsync-user-ma-user-account.aspx
However the remote Exchange Admins don't want to give full Org Management rights to the GA Sync account in MIM, what is the way to provide permissions that does not have Org Management rights but follow same approach as full permissions without breaking the RBAC model.

I have read about "Refresh schema" but I still don't understand when to use it.
I mean when I do an Import I read the database with a select statement and create a file that is automatically read my MIM and load into Connector Space.
Here is what it says about Refresh schema.
"Causes the MA to re-read the schema(i.e the available objects and related attributes) of the connected directory. This is used when the structure of a CD is changed after the creation of an MA."
I mean what is interesting for MIM is what is imported. The only way to get information into Connector Space is by importing.
So can somebody explain when and why I should use Refresh schema
