Known issues in this update

Synchronization Service

After this update is installed, rules extensions and custom management agents (MAs) that are based on Extensible MA (ECMA1 or ECMA 2.0) may not run and may produce a run status of "stopped-extension-dll-load." This issue occurs when you run such rules extensions or custom MAs after you change the configuration file for MIISServer.exe, Mmsscrpt.exe.config, or Dllhost.exe.config. For example, you edited the MIISServer.exe.config file to change the default batch size for processing sync entries for the FIM Service MA.

In this case, the synchronization engine installer for this update intentionally does not replace the configuration file to avoid deleting your previous changes. Because the configuration file is not replaced, entries that are required by this update will not be present in the files, and the synchronization engine will not load any rules extension DLLs when the engine runs a Full Import or Delta Sync run profile.

To resolve this issue, follow these steps:
  1. Make a backup copy of the MIIServer.exe.config file.
  2. Open the MIIServer.exe.config file in a text editor or in Microsoft Visual Studio.
  3. Find the <runtime> section in the MIIServer.exe.config file, and then replace the content of the <dependentAssembly> section with the following:

    <assemblyIdentity name="Microsoft.MetadirectoryServicesEx" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" />
    <bindingRedirect oldVersion="" newVersion="" />
    <bindingRedirect oldVersion="" newVersion="" />
    <bindingRedirect oldVersion="" newVersion="" />
    <bindingRedirect oldVersion="" newVersion="" />
    <bindingRedirect oldVersion="" newVersion="" />

  4. Save the changes to the file.
  5. Find the Mmsscrpt.exe.config file in the same directory and the Dllhost.exe.config in the parent directory. Repeat steps 1 through 4 for these two files.
  6. Restart the Forefront Identity Manager Synchronization Service (FIMSynchronizationService).
  7. Verify that the rules extensions and custom management agents now work as expected.


To apply this update, you must have Forefront Identity Manager 2010 (build 4.1.2273.0 or a later build) installed.

Restart requirement

You must restart the computer after you apply the Add-ins and Extensions (Fimaddinsextensions_xnn_kb2814853.msp) package. Additionally, you may have to restart the server components.

More Information

Issues that are fixed or features that are added in this update

This update fixes the following issues that were not previously documented in the Microsoft Knowledge Base.

FIM Synchronization service

Issue 1
In some cases, the Exchange configuration options on the Active Directory Management Agent do not appear. These options will now always be visible even if Exchange is not detected in the source directory.

Issue 2
When Exchange post-processing PowerShell cmdlets are run during export on the Active Directory Management Agent, the host process can stop for many reasons. In this case, the Active Directory Management Agent continues the export but does not try to run the Exchange cmdlets. With the changed behavior in this fix, the export run is now stopped so that the process can be restarted from where it ended.

Issue 3
The Synchronization service crashes in certain scenarios when references to newly created objects are exported into ECMA2 Connector (also known as "reference retry").

Issue 4
An ECMA1/XMA with call-based export crashes the Synchronization service. This problem occurs in some scenarios in which the following conditions are true:
  • Reference attributes are constantly rejected by the target directory.
  • The Synchronization service is trying to determine which value is causing the problem. It does this by trying to export a multivalued reference attribute as several individual changes (known as "fourth pass reference retry").

Issue 5
A full import might be stuck at the "Completing-Obsoletions" stage if the obsoletion of an object cascades into the obsoletion of related objects.

FIM service and portal

Issue 1
If a user who has access to advanced pages for a group (typically, an administrator) made a change to the object in this view, the group would contain invalid members. If the user was trying to delete the group, the system would be in a state in which no additional requests could be processed.
