INTRODUCTION

This article discusses a software update that enables the Host Access Management Agent (HAMA) for Microsoft Identity Integration Server (MIIS) 2003 to automatically resume an IBM Resource Access Control Facility (RACF) user account after a password set operation.

MORE INFORMATION

This software update adds support for automatically resuming IBM RACF user accounts after a password set operation.

This feature is useful in customer environments in which MIIS and the HAMA are used to centrally manage passwords for RACF user accounts. RACF user accounts may be in a revoked state in RACF after a password set operation. RACF accounts that are in the revoked state must be resumed in RACF before end-users can use their RACF user accounts.

Software update information

Microsoft Identity Integration Server 2003 Host Access Management Agent Feature Pack 1

A supported feature that modifies the default behavior of the product is available from Microsoft. However, this feature is intended to modify only the behavior that this article describes. Apply this feature only to systems that specifically require it. This feature might receive additional testing. Therefore, if the system is not severely affected by the lack of this feature, we recommend that you wait for the next software update that contains this feature.

If the feature is available for download, there is a "Hotfix download available" section at the top of this Knowledge Base article. If this section does not appear, contact Microsoft Customer Service and Support to obtain the feature.

Note If additional issues occur or if any troubleshooting is required, you might have to create a separate service request. The usual support costs will apply to additional support questions and issues that do not qualify for this specific feature. For a complete list of Microsoft Customer Service and Support telephone numbers or to create a separate service request, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
http://support.microsoft.com/contactus/?ws=support
Note The "Hotfix download available" form displays the languages for which the feature is available. If you do not see your language, it is because the feature is not available for that language.

Configuration information

After you apply the software update, you must enable the feature by adding the ResumeAcctOnPwSet key to the Miiserver.exe.config configuration file. The Miiserver.exe.config file typically exists in the following path:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Identity Integration Server\Bin
The Miiserver.exe.config file must be updated with the following information:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<configuration>
    <configSections>
        <sectionGroup name="managementAgents">
            <section name="RACFMA" type="System.Configuration.NameValueSectionHandler" />
         </sectionGroup>
    </configSections>
    <managementAgents>
        <RACFMA>
            <add key="ResumeAcctOnPwSet" value="False" />
        </RACFMA>
    </managementAgents>
</configuration>
The ResumeAcctOnPwSet key must be set to True if you want RACF user accounts to automatically resume after a password set operation. If the ResumeAcctOnPwSet key is set to False, the affected RACF user accounts remain in a revoked state in RACF after a password set operation.
