SSPR password change is not working with VIS(Optimal IDM) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    We configured SSPR in FIM 2010. the registration is working fine. When we are using Chnage password portal, it is prompting with questions and we are providing answers and it is going to reset password page.

    There we are providing new password and clicking on submit, It is throwing error.

    In MA we are unable to enable Password change checkbox. Because it is got disabled. Due to this reason password change is not working,

    Kindly suggest will Password reset works with VIS(Virtual Identity Server).

  • Would you elaborate why you can't enable that in the AD MA?

  • Can you tell me what the error is, and maybe there is some more information in the eventlog, are you running FIM 2010 R2?

    You can also enable logging to get more info:

  • The password-sync settings was not enabled in the XMA's Package xml file.  Once that was enabled, the configuration of this feature becomes available again.

  • SSPR in FIM only works against AD MA.

    One can use pwd-sync to sync the pwd to other MAs but let's not get there in this thread (and just focus on SSPR and AD MA)

  • We tested the Optimal IDM MA, with Password Managment checked, and the password reset failed. We configured an ADMA and it worked perfectly.

  • Can any one please let me know why the password reset functionality will not work with Optimal IDM MA.At the same time it is working with ADMA. Whether Optimal IDM MA will not supported by SSPR. If yes, do we have any MS documentation to declare that.

  • It should work through Virtual Identity Manager (VIS), but you will either have to ensure you are connecting to backend via SSL.
