FIM 2010 R2 Unattended Install Where You Want It

Posted by Laurin Kline on May 5, 2014 6:47:15 AM

Recently we started using a custom script to install and configure FIM in a consistent manner.

The first clue that things were going horribly wrong was when I got to this panel in the install process (an example from the “Installing the FIM 2010 R2 Add-ins and Extensions” found here http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh322877(v=ws.10).aspx):

Alerting on filter changes in FIM dynamic groups

Posted by CSS Technical Team on Aug 3, 2011 5:00:13 AM

In this blog, I will describe how to send an email message when a dynamic group's criteria (filter) changes. The email notification contains the display and account name of the group, the person making the change and both the old and new membership criteria filter. Having the previous filter definition can be invaluable if you need to revert back to a previous filter setting.
