Create group in FIM with powershell script RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    i'm trying to automate group creation in FIM by using a powershell script.

    as i found this page on technet i'm trying to use already build functions from there but for some reasons things are not working as i was expecting to.

    "ResolveObject" is the functions that doesn't seems to work, or i'm totally wrong about what it suppose to do.

    i was expecting that this function should identify an object in FIM in order to use its ObjectID (for example on group creation - to identofy group owner object) - eider it doesn't suppose to do this or it has some mistake in it.

    Can anyone please help me understand or fix this function,

    function ResolveObject
        PARAM([string] $ObjectType, [string]$AttributeName, [string]$AttributeValue)
            $importObject = New-Object Microsoft.ResourceManagement.Automation.ObjectModel.ImportObject
            $importObject.TargetObjectIdentifier = $TargetIdentifier
            $importObject.ObjectType = $ObjectType
            $importObject.State = 3 # Resolve
            $importObject.SourceObjectIdentifier = [System.String]::Format("urn:uuid:{0}", [System.Guid]::NewGuid().ToString())
            $importObject.AnchorPairs = New-Object Microsoft.ResourceManagement.Automation.ObjectModel.JoinPair
            $importObject.AnchorPairs[0].AttributeName = $AttributeName
            $importObject.AnchorPairs[0].AttributeValue = $AttributeValue
