    Hi there,

    At my current customer we are migrating to a new domain based on Windows server 2012r2. The new domain has it's own new DMZ zone.

    They are using FIM 2010 Password reset portal which needs to be migrated to the new environment. The environment is too big for a "big bang" so we will have a 2 domain environment for some period.

    Can anyone recommend me a scenario to achieve this migration? 

    Do I need to build a new separate FIM environment, which leaves me with 2 portals... Or can I move the current FIM infra to the new domain and still reset password in the old domain? And so on...

    What is the recommended setup regarding DMZ, is it possible to only place the portal website role in the DMZ?

    I also read that the web portal needs to be installed in Sharepoint foundation 2013. Is this true? Or can it be installed on IIS as well?

    I have no experience with FIM, so all answers and advice are welcome :-)

    Thanks in advance,

    We have 2 exchange servers mail01 and mail02. FIM is configured to use mail02.

    During a processing cycle, a User was created in HR and exported to FIM. mail02 service seemed to stop. The new user in FIM started Workflow OK. The new user notification tried to use mail02 - all that happened was a whole load of Event Viewer messages.

    When exporting to ADMA I got a dll-exception.

    OK. Easy to fix. configure FIM to use mail01 and edit the AD MA exchange extension to use mail01 and rerun the Sync Operations.

    My problem is where exactly is that new user Notification? Its fairly important as it shows the initial Password of the AD account.

    I tried to log in as FIMService using the url https://mail01/owa and see what is there... but there are no send entries!

    How do I get the new user Notification to be resent??? Will it appear in a weeks time when mail02 is fixed/restarted/rebooted?

  • 09/23/14--07:38: FIM 2010 performance testing
  • Hi All,

     I'm looking for information on FIM load testing and the best way to achieve this?

    Currently FIM allows users to logon to the FIM portal and update some attributes (i.e. phone number) which are then updated in AD by the synchronisation service (setup for an automated sync to run every 5 minutes).

    What I'd like to know if how would my environment cope with 30, 100 or 1000 users simultaneously access the portal and attempting to update an AD attribute?

    I've read the documentation which gives sizing examples and guidelines, but doesn't detail how to simulate a significant workload.

    Please advise.

    Is it possible to give a group of users the ability to just create 'Vendor' accounts in the Portal?

    While another group of users the ability to just create 'Contractor' accounts in the Portal?

    ...and other group of users to create just another 'type' of users in the Portal?

  • 09/23/14--19:39: ERP to AD user creation
  • We have Dynamics NAV 2013 R2 (ERP software) and would like to have active directory user accounts created automatically when an employee is added in the ERP software.  I'm looking for a solution that is built to handle that type of process, does anyone know of any products that can handle this for us? 

    Would FIM work for this, if so, how could we use this product to make it possible?

    Thank you,

    FIM 2010 R2 SP1 adds Active Directory 2012 support, but it does not mention 2012 R2 domain/forest functional level support.  Is this supported?  If not, will support be added prior to the next major release of FIM?

    I cannot get logging to work with build 5.3.1003.0 of the Lotus Domino Connector. I've followed the instructions on these sites

    When I use the ETW tracing subsystem option I get log files but they doesn't contain any log entries from the connector.

    I see that the guid is different in the two articles. Maybe it's a new guid for the that build.

    Has anybody been able to get it to work? Any ideas that I can try?

    The users in China and Japan are able to change IME settings from single byte mode to double byte mode and vice versa by KEYBOARD operation on Excel ,word, outlook , IE and more.
    While resetting the password through the Ctrl-Alt-Del screen using the “Forgot your password?” link, they are unable to use the double byte character as they don’t get the option to change the byte mode.
    On the contrary, when the users try to use the reset URL, they are able to change the byte mode and so able to reset their passwords.
    So the users who have input the answers in the double byte mode are unable to reset their passwords using the “Forgot your password?” link.

  • 09/26/14--09:18: FIM R2 Password Sync
  • I have a doubt related to related to Password Synchronization in FIM R2. I tried searching in different forums but could not get clear answer.

    I am using FIM password reset portal to reset the user password in AD. Do we require PCNS to synchronize Password using FIM synchronization service.

    As per my understanding, this is how Password synchronization works when resetting the password using FIM password reset portal

    The portal passes the user name and domain to FIM via the WMI.
    The correct AD CS object is found.
    Any other related objects, in MAs for which password management is configured, are found.
    A password change is sent to AD.
    If that is successful, a password set (never a change) is sent to any other CDs.

    If this is correct then password synchronization should work but it is not working for me. Only password reset is working.

    Can you please help me to understand if we require PCNS to synchronize the password?

    Note: I have enabled the password management in respective MA's. The target which I am trying to synchronize the password is AD in different domain.

  • 09/27/14--04:05: FIM r2 software reqs
  • I'm looking to implement FIM 2010 r2 however looking at the software reqs, it mentions

    "Exchange 2007 SP1 Management Console." , "System Center Service Manager 2010 Service Pack 1 (SCSM 2010 SP1) " and "Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 Service Pack 2 (SP2) or Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2010."

    Is exchange required? We do not have an exchange server nor use office 365. The password for our email account is not linked to the AD account

    SCSM is apparently needed for "new reporting" features. What would we miss out on if we did not get SCSM?

    I know sharepoint foundation is free but is it a show stopper if we don't have it?

     Any suggestions/hints? I belive it is something with SharePoint (SP Foundation 2013 is used/ no farms).

    By the way - in the similar setup in test environment it went OK. Right now it is failing on the production

    Got a few FIM Portal Workflow Approval questions. How many of these can be accomplished with out of the box FIM functionality/GUI:

    1. If there are multiple approvers listed in the 'Approvers' section, and the 'Approval Threshhold = 1 Approver" - then when only one person approves the request, the request will be approved and also be no longer visible to the other approvers?

    2. Can there be two levels of approval required? And if the first approver rejects the request, the second approver will simply not even be notified?

    3. Can the first level approver be an AD Group? and the 'Escalated Approver' be the AD Group Owner?

    4. What happens if the Escalated approval has not happened, say after 10 days...can FIM Service fire off an email to someone like Help Desk?

    Thank you,

    I am running Model Generator wizard and have encountered this error multiple times. Could some one help me understand why this error occurs and where to check the permissions for logs. I am running the Model Generator with an account that has Administrator privileges on local machine.

    Error: "The source was not found, but some or all event logs could not be searched. Inaccessible logs:Security."

    Appreciate any help to identify the error.
