Adamsync & Forefront Identity Manager RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am currently using adamsync.exe to create UserProxy objects in AD LDS to allow users to authenticate. Can i replace the command line adamsync tool with Forefront Identity Manager? As of now adamsync.exe looks at an OU in Active directory and creates an account for each user in AD LDS as userproxyfull objects and that works well to allow authentications. I would like to move away from the command line approach and use another tool to do it....Can Forefront Identity Manager handle this?

  • Jef, the simple answer is yes FIM can do this. If you're happy to write a small amount of extension code, then you can deploy just the Sync component. Otherwise you'll need to add the Service and Portal components.
