FIM WMI NAMESPACE PROVIDER

With the namespace provider, you may be able to write scripts to go in and look at things in the FIM Synchronization Service Engine.  Items like:

  • The number of runs in the run history

Review the MSDN information on our WMI Namespace Provider: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ms694615.aspx
