Do any FIM services support the use of Managed Service Accounts? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Just checking to see if this is the case. If yes, are Group Managed Service Accounts supported (server 2012)? Or only standalone. If not, is it a feature currently under consideration?

    TIA,

    James

  • There is currently no support for Managed Service Account in any FIM component. If you try to use them, you will notice that you will not even be able to get past the password screen during setup.

    There are many things I'm considering for the future :-), but I cannot commit to any particular release when these will be fully supported.

  • It's two years later.  Are Managed Service Accounts supported now for any FIM component?

    If not, one must ask why even bother introducing something like Managed Service Accounts if even internal products don't use them?

  • Stephen, nothing has changed regarding gMSAs as far as I know.
