Release Candidate 1 Bits are available for download - VHD on its way

    General discussion

  • Posted to on 30 Sept, 2009:

    The RC1 release of Forefront Identity Manager 2010 (FIM) is available today
    here.  The next version of Identity Lifecycle Manager 2007, FIM 2010 dramatically improves enterprise identity management by delivering owerful self-service capabilities for Office end-users, rich administrative tools and enhanced automation for IT professionals, and .NET and WS-* based extensibility for developers.  The final release is slated for the first quarter of 2010. 


    What’s new in FIM RC1:

    ·         Significant performance and scalability improvements across the product.

    ·         Key feature enhancements, such as the ability to show invalid security group members and to disable batch approve/reject of membership requests if needed.  A System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) management pack and configuration migration tools are also new for RC1.

    ·         The FIM 2010 user interface has enhanced usability and layout in many areas, resulting directly from RC0 customer feedback.

    ·         The product is now rebranded as Forefront Identity Manager 2010, with a few exceptions, replacing the old “ILM 2” codename. 


    FIM is part of Microsoft’s continued, far-reaching commitment to enabling more secure, identity-based access to applications  -  on-premises and in the cloud, from virtually any location or device

    I am creating a new VHD for this release as well but it will not be available in another 7-10 days at least.

    Have fun !

    Will you make an announcement when the VHD is ready for download?

  • Hello Brjann,

    We are now 25 days later than your message on October 1 where you mention that the VHD will be released after at least 7-10 days. Do you have an more estimated timeframe when we may expect to be able to download this VHD?


    Kind Regards, Frank van Rijt

  • Hi Frank!
    I had a chat with Brjann last week (Tuesday) and then he had just got the VHD back from the revisers so I believe it will show up any day now.

  • When following the steps here: for installing the FIM 2010 Management Pack, despite overcoming the broken link to the System Center Pack Catalogue, I still cannot locate the plug-in for FIM 2010.  I've tried breaking down my searches to even just the string "identity" and I get no hits for FIM2010.
    Even browsing by category and selecting "Security->Identity Management, Privacy" gives no results.

    Is the Management Pack for FIM2010 still available? If so, where?
