Table of Contents PURPOSEOVERVIEW Benefits of dumping to a drop file: STEPSADDITIONAL INFORMATION
The purpose of this document is to illustrate how to create an Export Run Profile that will dump the exporting data to a drop file.
Exporting to a drop file creates a DSML file. This file can be found in the Management Agent folder under the %programfiles%\Microsoft Forefront Identity Manager\2010\Synchronization Service\MADATA\<Name of Management Agent>.
*NOTE* if you are using an older version of the product your path might look like %programfiles%\Microsoft Identity Integration Server\MADATA\<Name of Management Agent>.
As we know, an export is always a delta. It only writes what needs to be written. So by dropping the data to export to a drop file dumps the objects that are being exported, with the action, the attribute and attribute value to be written.
