FIM ScriptBox Item

Summary

During the installation of FIM, you have to specify a user account that is used to run the FIM management agent. This account must be entered when you configure your FIM MA. If your FIM service runs on a domain controller, the account must also be granted the right to logon locally. If you configure your management agent to use a different account or if the account has not been granted the right to logon locally, it is very likely that an error occurs when running a run profile on your FIM management agent.

The objective of the PowerShell script code below is to verify that the account you have configured to be used by your FIM management agent satisfies all prerequisites.
