Note-to-self: #MIM2016 & #FIM2010 Config documenter released on GitHub

Source: Announcement on MIM 2016 Group on LinkedIn by  Jef Kazimer

Source Code: https://github.com/Microsoft/MIMConfigDocumenter

Jef announced that the Identity Community Projects team has published the MIM Config Documenter tool to the Microsoft GitHub Organization as an open source community project.

The MIM configuration documenter is a very nice and easy tool to generate documentation of a MIM / FIM synchronization or service installation.

It allows to: 

  • Document deployment configuration details for the MIM / FIM solution, including MIMWAL Workflow definitions
  • Track any configuration changes you have made since a specific baseline
  • Build confidence in getting things right when making changes to the deployed solution

You can find the project code, releases, and documentation at https://github.com/Microsoft/MIMConfigDocumenter

Microsoft released #MIM2016 Service Pack 1 UPDATE package

Source: https://aka.ms/mim2016sp1upgrade

Since the release of MIM 2016 SP1 just a few weeks ago, Microsoft received significant feedback from the community, their partners and customers regarding the upgrade paths for the service pack.

8th of November, Microsoft announced the availability of the MIM 2016 SP1 Update MSP.

This MSP allows current customers on MIM 2016 RTM, or any hotfix build since 2016 RTM to perform an in-place upgrade to the current build of this MSP (4.4.1302.0).

The supported in-place upgrade scenarios are outlined in the table below. To obtain this update, please click here.

Please note, an updated MSI for new implementations is likely to be released soon.

Carefully check the upgrade paths, as this MSP cannot be applied to build 4.4.1296.0 (MIM 2016 SP1 RTM).

The download page explicitly mentions: “MIM 2016 RTM Versions to update their infrastructure to the latest SP1 Build without complete uninstall. Customers already on MIM 2016 SP1 (4.4.1237) can not install this patch. 

Supported Operating System

Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2016

MIM 2016 RTM or one of the following hotfix builds: 4.3.2064.0 4.3.2195.0 4.3.2266.0″

 

Initial Build Hotfix Applied Build after SP1 Update
RTM None 4.4.1302.0
RTM 4.3.2064.0 4.4.1302.0
RTM 4.3.2064.0, 4.3.2195.0 4.4.1302.0
RTM 4.3.2195.0 4.4.1302.0
RTM 4.3.2266.0 4.4.1302.0

Additionally, for customers running Office 2010 needing the x86 Add-ins and Extensions, do not update using this MSP, a forthcoming hotfix will be made available in the coming months.

If you have any comments for the Product Group, please send us an email at: mim2016@microsoft.com

 

Active Directory PowerShell: List items with “Protect object from accidental deletion” setting

Freshly posted for you on TNWiki: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/36088.active-directory-powershell-list-items-with-protect-object-from-accidental-deletion-setting.aspx

 


Introduction

Ever got in a situation where you as AD domain admin were blocked from
deleting items?

Or did you ever receive an “Access denied” when you tried to delete items
from AD, even with full admin rights?

Then you better check if AD has the “protect from accidental deletion”
activated on the object, container or OU…

In case you want to check a larger collection of items for this setting, it
quickly becomes complicated.

This article helps you to get an overview by using Powershell, and an export
of the impacted items to a CSV file.

As explained by : James ONeill (Windows Server 2008 Protection from Accidental Deletion)

“The functionality to prevent accidental deletion is not based on a new attribute in Active Directory.  It is enabled by ticking a check box on the Object tab of the particular object you wish to protect.  The Object tab is only visible when the Advanced Features option is selected from the View menu of Active Directory Users and Computers. When the tick box is checked the permissions on the object are changed. A “Deny” permission is created which stops deletion of the object.  “

 


Overview

This script finds all AD objects protected from accidental deletions.

The new #MIM2016 book is out! Must have!

I just got the notice from Packt Publishing today that the new MIM2016  book has been published!
Go check at http://aka.ms/mim2016book.

David Steadman and Jeff Ingalls have been working very hard to create a reference piece of literature, so it’s a must have for your bookshelf.

From the early beginning of the book I’ve been involved in the reviewing, and although it has been a bumpy ride, it has been a great time!

I know my FIM/MIM geekiness/freakiness must have caused quite some headaches to the authors and the publishing project team at Packt, but just be sure it was for the better good.

The ebook version is awful cheap, but I’m going for the paper version anyway as I’m convinced it’s a must have.

So my future FIM/MIM students will have something to look forward to (meaning get their hands on MY copy of the book, … )

3925EN_4526_Microsoft%20Identity%20Manager%202016%20Handbook_jpg

Congratz, David and Jeff!
Now you can take a well-deserved vacation!

 

Note-to-self: Hotfix rollup package (build 4.3.2124.0) is available for #MIM2016

Source: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3134725

Initially posted by Jeff Ingalls at the FIM 2010 FB group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/155109068156/10153501281698157/?notif_t=group_activity

Except for an important set of fixed, there are some very interesting features added to MIM 2016

MIM Synchronization Service

This update adds the ability to override the default Synchronization engine behavior of changing run profile GUID after export and import of the server configuration.
