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.
#UPDATE 16. April 2013: Changed the PS script to write directly to binary attribute Picture in CS. Removing the need for rules extension. The new updates is uploaded in the zip file. Also remember to update your Schema file (example further down in this post).. #UPDATE 29. April 2013 – Fixed bug on line 74. […]
