Random password and FIM RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    When provisioning new AD accounts (from an HR system, via FIM) is there a way that FIM could generate random passwords?

    Is there a way that this random password be available for a print job to give to the user?

    Thanks.

  • Yes, there is a workflow you can use to generate a random password and you can at least email it to someone.

  • When you do this, could you please take notes?
    I would like to know what kind of questions you have.

    This is a good candidate for a Wiki article...

    Cheers,
