Importing XML Configuration via Management Agent RRS feed

  • Question

  • I know that there's a fairly standard practice of using xml files for configuration for Management Agent Extensions and to load them into memory during the initialization method. I thought it could save a little bit of time by writing an xml Management Agent and bringing the configuration in with a Management Agent so that you have configuration objects in your metaverse. Then instead of importing the xml config, you can look at the metaverse for configuration during syncs or provisioning.

    what do you think?

  • We use the MIIServer.exe.config file to store configuration items that are typically different from a Development to production environment rather than loading an XML during initalization. You can reference http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/0c6501ff-8807-4817-97f9-2dfb4e3571b2/code-placement for details. I have tried this in past but it gets tricky at times as you need to do an mvutils lookup of the configuration at initialization and still store the configuration on variables or repeat the lookup every time you need it.
