Default RCDC xml files RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm looking for a way to reset some RCDC settings back to defaults.  Specifically the "view set"and "edit set" RCDC have been broken.  Anyone have a pointer where I can download the default RCDC xml files for FIM2010?

    I know that I can download the default edit mode templates but they contain minimal formatting to get it working and I would prefer to restore to the original XML from Microsoft.

  • OK - let me see if I can ask this a different way. :D

    Could someone, who has not edited these RCDC files, send me a copy of their 'Set' files?

    1. Administration | Resource Control Display Configuration
    2. Open the RCDC 'Configuration for Set Creation'
    3. Click 'Export configuration'
    4. Save the xml file
    5. Repeat steps 2-4 for 'Configuration for Set Viewing' and 'Configuration for Set Editing'

    You can email them to protoluke [at]

    I've uploaded them there. Hopefully, you can access them. They are for R2, but might work. My copy of 2010 is past the eval period.

  • SamiVV!

    Looks like this is getting me back to where I need to be.  Thank you!

  • SamiVV,

    Not to hijack the post too much... but

    After importing the xml's you attached the option 'enable criteria-based membership in current set' is greyed out.  I am running FIM2010R2, so the xml files you posted were for the correct version.  I checked the MPR for Sets and everything looks good (Administration: Administrators control set resources).  Though I've looked at them way too many times.

    The checkbox is available when creating a group.  I must be missing some MPR somewhere.

  • Hi Pr0t0luke,

    Sorry for the delayed reply--I'm on the road and without lab access right now. In your "Administration: Administrators control set resources" MPR, is the membershipLocked attribute in the allowed attributes? (I think that's what it's called--that's it in the groups.)

    When I can get to a lab environment, I can check for you.



    Edit: also check the attributes in the "Advanced" view, "Extended Attribtues" of the set.

  • The "Administration: Administrators control set resources" MRP did _not_ contain the membershipLocked attribute, adding it did not resolve the issue.  I also checked the Advanced views and they looked correct (ie the new attribute was added and settings were similar).  For additional testing I temporarily changed the MPR to use 'All attributes'.  This did not resolve the issue either.

    Based on these result I thought that maybe there is different MPR we need to consider.  I reviewed at all the old requests when I changed anything about a set and the only MPR I saw that was used was this "Administration: Administrators control set resources"

  • Hi,

    Not sure this helps, but I was able to recreate this... If I created a set as Manual membership then removed the members, the checkbox to enable criteria based membership always stays greyed out.

    Perhaps you could use PowerShell to change the Set Type?

  • Interesting thought - though this does happen with all of the sets.  I'll check the set types shortly.

  • you have to go to avanced view and manualy edit the filter with a criteria based xpath that works....hit submit and it will change it.  Then you can go back into the set, view criteria based and make the correct change there.

  • I would have to do this on every single set?  That just doesn't seem right.

  • seeming right or is the way it is.  I've only had this happen a few times to me.  I didn't blank out manually managed membership on all my sets....just a few.

    In your case, the reloading of the XML's has apparently caused you some frustration and I'd be happy to know if you could manage this globally once.

  • A bit late on this reply, but PowerShell might help you here. You could try something like this script:
