Solution

 

Restart Service twice

 

At the first attempt, the service will take a very long time to try starting.

When the initial attempt fails, try restarting the FIM Synchronization again.

 

Check DB connection

 

Use a UDL file with the Data Link Properties tool to check if you can connect to the FIM Sync Database.

Announcing the public availability of the MIMWAL project, now available as an Open Source Project on GitHub.

The MIMWAL is a Workflow Activity Library (WAL) for building complex workflows in the Microsoft Identity Manager (MIM) 2016 and Forefront Identity Manager (FIM) 2010 R2 solution.

The WAL is a powerful solution accelerator for MIM / FIM that provides foundational activities which can be combined to create complex workflows to implement business processes within a MIM / FIM solution simply by configuration instead of coding for days and months.

MIMWAL Features

  • Building-block Workflow Activities
  • Conditional Execution Capability for Building-block Activities
  • Support for Iteration Over a Collection of Values in Building-block Activities
  • Deep Resolution Capability for FIM Lookup Grammar
  • Rich Library of Workflow Functions
  • UI Framework for Building Additional Custom Workflow Activities
  • Support for ETW Event Tracing
  • Optimization of Update Requests
    • Combining multiple updates into a single request per resource per activity
    • Issuing update request only when resource is actually modified.

More information

Please visit the MIMWAL site at http://aka.ms/MIMWAL for information on project source code, releases and documentation, and discussion forums.

Note-to-self: #FIM2010 Microsoft.MetadirectoryServices.dll vs. Microsoft.MetadirectoryServicesEx.dll

Tue 12 Jan 2016 Leave a comment

Question: What’s the difference between Microsoft.MetadirectoryServices.dll and Microsoft.MetadirectoryServicesEx.dll?

MIIS/ILM code is using the Microsoft.MetadirectoryServices.dll, while FIM is using Microsoft.MetadirectoryServicesEx.dll.

Can the old DLL be removed from the FIM code extensions, when the new DLL is referenced in code?

Answer:

You should use the Ex.dll when possible. The other DLL is only there in case you have a DLL from MIIS, has lost the sources, and cannot recompile it. The only difference between the two is that Ex is digitally signed and the other is not. When you have changed the references to Ex.dll you will not need the other.

[non-Dutch speaking audience, look the other way for a short moment… or skip to the last paragraph]

Voor de Nederlandstalige spelfanaten: de kinderen kregen voor afgelopen Kerst het spel Relic Runners cadeau.

Na enige navraag, blijkt dat hiervan de Nederlandse vertaling nog niet bestond.
Wat wel zonde is, want het is een erg leuk spel.
En er zitten een aantal leuke addertjes onder het gras in de spelregels van Relic Runners.

Dus om de pret te delen, heb ik dan maar zelf de spelregels vertaald.

Voor de Nederlandstalige fans van het Relic Runners bord spel. Je kan de integrale Nederlandse vertaling van de spelregels van Relic Runners vinden om m’n OneDrive: http://1drv.ms/1JTXrnL.
