FIM DB Connection Info RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    My client's DBA asked me if the "Application Name" attribute of the database connection could be set.  They use that information to determine where DB connections are coming from.  I looked at the config files and didn't see anything.  Is that configurable?

  • The Sync Engine specifies this but as I recall the FIM Service does not. Since you can't specify an explicit connection string for the FIM Service, I don't think you can set this.

    Thanks, Brian

  • It's possible to do, but I sure don't recommend it in any way shape or form. Why not just look at the database name or Host Name?

    Here's how I did it in my lab if you feel like breaking your environment, reminds me of that comic "little bobby tables" :)
