Batch Attribute Updates for Users in Forefront Identity Manager (FIM)

Posted by CSS Technical Team on Jun 25, 2014 11:56:00 AM

A client recently requested the ability to use data in an externally-generated file to perform batch attribute updates for Users in the FIM Service. What made this more complicated than expected was that some of the user attributes, for example Manager, were FIM references.

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. During more than a few manual installs, I’ve been asked to install FIM into a drive or directory other than “C:\Program Files\Microsoft Forefront Identity Manager\2010," so I knew the script would need to have this capability. After finding and reading the “Unattended Installation of FIM 2010 R2” post, I spent a great deal of time searching the internet which led me to the not well documented option, INSTALLDIR=”” that allows the unattended install of FIM components to drives or directories other than the default.

Maybe, this something you already knew, but I thought I’d share it, as it wasn’t an obvious choice.

What Cannot Be Done With FIM 2010 R2 Password Reset Extensions

Posted by Laurin Kline on Sep 5, 2012 5:16:46 AM

“Can we install the FIM 2010 R2 Add-ins and Extensions on our desktops before we upgrade the rest of the FIM environment?”

While this may be an obvious, self-answering question, I had a client ask me about it recently, and while I was pretty certain of the answer, “No,” I had some time and a virtual environment so I went ahead and tested it.
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):
