BHOLD SP1 Newbie RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All
     Our company is new both to FIM and BHOLD.  We are looking to use the current version (2010 R2 SP1) of FIM and SP1 of BHOLD. Specifically, I am trying to figure out how the Access Management Connector works, not to speak of all the other features of BHOLD, but the documentation says only a little about it. The walk through is ok, but leaves many questions unanswered. Has anyone had more success and is willing to share it?   Any feedback is appreciated.
    Some of my Questions are:
    - Do I have to use classical provisioning?  I have managed to use delcarative provisioning for everything else.
    -  Can I consolidate my MA's into one?  Per the documentation, I need to create a separate Org and User MA
    -  Is there any good documentation?  There are some blogs, but most refer to pre SP1.  The documentation on MSDN is poor, at best.
    -  Has anyone sucessfully deployed BHOLD SP1?  I see some questions, but actual examples of a successful deployment.

    Thanks!

    Both classic and declarative can be used.

    Your orgchart data in real world scenario can come from entirely different source than your users data (or even worse, from different system). Also, you could create basic role model without any users at all, just by analyzing orgstructure.That's why in most cases you will need separate MAs.

    Have you done TLG:BHOLD? (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj853085%28v=ws.10%29.aspx). I believe it is up to date with SP1 and also it provides a good baseline which can be applied to your own test/dev enviroment.

    Also it is advised to check out OCG Webinars: http://www.oxfordcomputergroup.com/webinars.aspx, there was recent webinar which covered some case studies and they had quite good (though lengthy) technical webinar regarding BHOLD some time ago.

  •  I have done the Technet Lab, and it gives a general overview, but the lab doesn't match what I would like to do.  I am just looking for more information.  I am looking at the Oxford webcasts.  Thanks for the information!
