Flow computer objects

    Question

  • Hey guys,

    I'm working on group synchronization and realized that some of the groups have computer objects. I have not been able to find any information on what attributes I need to flow for computer objects in my SR and FIMMA.

    Can anyone please point me in the right direction?

    Once I find out the flows do I take the same steps as syncing up the users:

    1. Create inbound SR
    2. Create Workflow
    3. Create MPR
    4. Configure FIM MA attribute flows

    anything else?

    thank you,


    -PD

  • I've set this up in our environment, and it works beautifully. You'll need to create the Computer object as a custom resource in the FIM Portal as it's not included by default. I found the following two links helpful:

    Because you're creating it as a custom resource, you only need to flow the attributes that you've assigned to the custom resource, unlike some of the built-in ones like Users or Groups. As an example, we flow in from AD and then outbound to the FIM Portal the following attributes: objectSid, dNSHostName, distinguishedName (<dn>), displayName, managedBy and a constant for the domain. 

    Once the custom resource and attribute flows are set up, you sync them in exactly the same way as you sync users.
