Note-to-self: @JsQForKnowledge – FIM Portals Die After Installing Rollup Package (Build 4.1.3599.0)


@JsQForKnowledge (aka Jorge de Almeida Pinto) posted an interesting fix on his blog to get FIM 2010 R2 back up and running after the 3599 fix broke the portal.

A hotfix rollup package (build 4.1.3496.0) is available for Forefront Identity Manager 2010 R2 (#FIM2010)

If you have seen the announcement of the three newly released Connectors for FIM2010R2, there is some more news in the technet documentation…

The Windows Azure Active Directory Connector for FIM 2010 R2 Technical Reference requires FIM 2010 R2 hotfix 4.1.3493.0 or later (2906832).

That requirement refers to a new KB article, announcing FIM Hotfix build 4.1.3496.0:

Update rollup 2 for FIM 2010 has been published

Source: Update Rollup 2 (build 4.0.3606.2) is available for Forefront Identity Manager 2010

Update Rollup 2 (build 4.0.3606.2) is available for Microsoft Forefront Identity Manager (FIM) 2010.
This hotfix package resolves several issues and adds several features that are described in the “More Information” section of the release note.
Additionally, this update contains all servicing fixes that were made since the release of FIM 2010.

One of the important ‘fixes’ is the recall of an earlier fix: the change in the previous hotfix release that treated SQL wildcard characters as literals

This fix also adds support for the new Extensible Connectivity Management Agent 2.0 (ECMA 2) framework.
