Just a quick memo to myself. When creating a set where you want to filter on all people that does not have an AccountName, it`s important to be aware of a bug(?) in the filterbuilder. Creating this set does not work, this will filter out all users with an AccountName EXCEPT users with AccountName starting […]
Saved me A LOT of work. Some of you may have run into an issue with what I like to call “ghost data”. Ghost objects are essentially fragments or artifacts left over in the metaverse when a deletion should have occurred but, for one reason or another, didn’t and are left as such in a […]
Okay, so: You finished installing MIM 2016, the world is looking good and you get some bad ass events in the eventlog when restarting the FIMService that looks like this: Problem Workflow host activation failed for workflow definition id : 303cac16-d927-41f6-abce-21ccbd883ea2, version key: 6. Exception: The communication object, Microsoft.ResourceManagement.Workflow.Hosting.ResourceManagementWorkflowServiceHost, cannot be used for communication because […]
Problem You want to run PowerShell 3.0 cmdlets through FIM PowerShell Workflow Activity (FIM PS WF) (https://fimpowershellwf.codeplex.com)? As you may or may not know FIM2010 R2 Service is using a workflow host based on Workflow Foundation 3.5 (.NET 3.5). This means that you can only run PowerShell 2.0 cmdlets through the workflow from FIM.
I’ve played around for a while now with different reporting solution for FIM2010R2. I crawled all over Google hoping to find some samples on custom reports using FIM`s default reporting capabilities SSRS and SCSM. I didn`t find _anything_, so I filled up a big mug of coffee and refused to leave my desk before it […]
I’m looking into some alternatives on FIM2010 R2 reporting besides the whole SCSM solution, that is quite complex and don`t give you that much of useful reports by default. So this time, im trying out Splunk with Oxford Computer Group`s Splunk for FIM App.
I just built a pretty big FIM2010 R2 solution in a development environment, and now was the time to migrate the whole solution to new production servers. Well, I was pretty nervous about it. I have previously used Microsoft`s solution (here), but this time I had _a lot_ of MPR`s, Sets, WF and also a […]
When you got a lot of users in your FIM portal, you probably want to use search scopes to get a quick overview or a “cleaner” presentation of users. Let`s create a new custom search scope that gives us a view of all users that is currently active.
When I deploy FIM2010 solutions to customers I have some “features” I always add as default. One of them is editing the FIM Portal RCDC for view- and edit users to show the users group membership. From my point of view this should be a out-of-the-box feature. It`s not, but it fairly easy to add.
