  • I always like the form posts, and I'd love the ability to download the information. I don't like the wiki option at all because I already have a gazillion registrations out there.  Another one to Technet seems redundant.

  • Thanks, Robert.

    This is now really a surprise - and please, don't take this the wrong way, there is no hidden judgment included :-) - I just didn't expect this.
    My expectation was that the community would prefer the wiki platform for longer articles.

  • Not a surprise at all really Markus.  I'm in an organization that blocks the pictures and most of the info from the wiki pages.  Having a resource to download these valuable documents outside of a socially connected and therefore often blocked webpage would be extremely helpful.

  • This is an EXCELLENT example of what I would LOVE to see on every Technet subject: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee441285.aspx The "Download in English or Read online " options are perfect.

  • I got thru all of these documents to the point now where I am syncing to and from the AD users and Groups.  I found the wikki information to be easier to follow. However because of my lack of knowledge with any Identity manager I found the wikki's were taking for granted certain bits of knowledge. I then had to cross refrence from the technet articles and utilize the help buttons to grasp what I was being asked.

    There is at least 1 type in the group provisioning wikki where you ask to run the fimma import,sync,export,import and then say run fimma export,import. I think there may be others in the document but I was more focus on getting the AD sync working.


    What I need now is documents that explain how to sync free busy time between domains. I dont know if this is possible but it is what I was hoping I could do with the project when I started learning it.
