ECMA v1 Full Import Hungs RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello. We have FIM 2012 R2 SP1 v 4.1.3646.0 installed

    We are having a strange behavior with an ECMA 1.0 MA, in which the Full Import run profile gets into an infinite loop and consumes almost all the CPU. The FIM console does not show any updated numbers (and there should be) for the operation, as the CS is not getting populated, and after a long time in the “in-progress” state with no progresses we need to stop the run. Then, the console immediately shows the “stopped-user-termination-from-wmi-or-ui” state.

    This MA works fine in ILM 2007, but not on FIM 2012 R2 (tested on several FIMs with same results).

    This MA was initially configured for import and export. Then the FI (Staging only) run profile was created (along with several export profiles), and after that the MA was reconfigured to have interface for export only. That way, export are processed by the dll (call based) and the FI by FIM.

    Any ideas? Thanks!!

  • The first thing an ECMA1 full import will do will be to try to create a text file under the <FIM program files folder>\Madata\<your MA name> folder.  Check to see if this file is being created at all ... the error could be occurring before, during or after this file is being created - but I suspect it's most likely before.  If this is the case ...

    Check this FIM R2 KB where it talks about Microsoft.MetadirectoryServicesEx.dll, and the different versions of this file that have existed over the years (it originally used to be Microsoft.MetadirectoryServices.dll).  You will need to find out which one yours depends on and adjust accordingly.
