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 (.config) for one of the following processes:
  • MIIServer.exe
  • Mmsscrpt.exe
  • Dllhost.exe
For example, you edited the MIIServer.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:

    <dependentAssembly>
    <assemblyIdentity name="Microsoft.MetadirectoryServicesEx" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" />
    <bindingRedirect oldVersion="3.3.0.0-4.1.2.0" newVersion="4.1.3.0" />
    </dependentAssembly

  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.

FIM Reporting

If you install FIM Reporting on a new server that has System Center Service Manager 2012 Service Pack 1 installed, follow these steps:
  1. Install the FIM 2010 R2 SP1 FIMService component. To do this, click to clear the Reporting check box.
  2. Install this hotfix rollup to upgrade the FIM Service to build 4.1.3479.0.
  3. Run the change-mode installation for the FIM Service, and then add Reporting.

If reporting is enabled and the change-mode installation is run for FIM Service and Portal, you must be re-enable reporting. To do this in the FIM Identity Management Portal, follow these steps:
  1. On the Administration menu, click All Resources.
  2. Under All Resources, click System Configuration Settings.
  3. Click the System Configuration Settings object, and then open the Properties of this object.
  4. Click Extended Attributes, and then select the Reporting Logging Enabled check box.
  5. Click OK, and then click Submit to save the change.

Prerequisites

To apply this update, you must have Forefront Identity Manager 2010 R2 (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_kb2889529.msp) package. Additionally, you may have to restart the server components.

More Information


Issues that are fixed in this update

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

FIM Service

Issue 1
When you have very long XPath queries in the FIM Service, CPU usage may increase. This causes a decrease in performance.

FIM Synchronization Service

Issue 1
The Synchronization Service may leak memory when you use an ECMA2 connector.

Issue 2
When an existing ECMA2 connector is updated when a server configuration is moved between servers, the update is unsuccessful. This problem occurs when the connector requires access to encrypted parameters, such as a password, to complete the operation.

Issue 3
When an import is confirmed, a staging error may occur in rare cases. When this problem occurs, you receive the following error message:

Cannot insert duplicate key row in object 'dbo.mms_cs_link'

Issue 4
If during a full import on the Active Directory management agent there is a reference on an organizational unit (OU) to an OU two levels down, the sync engine will crash.

Issue 5
When you select the option to abandon the key set in the Synchronization Service Key Management Utility, the operation may be unsuccessful. Additionally, you receive the following error message:

Value is not in the expected range.

BHOLD suite

Issue 1
The processing of BHOLD Queue entries takes a longer time than expected to finish after an earlier hotfix is applied.

Issue 2
You cannot add a permission for a user by using the BHOLD connector if the permission was ever denied for the user.

Issue 3
The removal of permissions from a personal role (prefixed with PR-) does not trigger the removal of those permissions from the user.
