Hi all

Quick update on FIM connectors for 2010 R2 …

Update to Generic LDAP Connector

We have published an update to the Generic LDAP Connector adding support for some additional LDAP directories, see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2936070/

General Availability of PowerShell Connector

The PowerShell Connector can be used to communicate with a system through PowerShell scripts. This allows an easy and flexible way to communicate with other systems but also to pre-/post-process data and files before handed over to the FIM Synchronization Service. We believe the community will help providing scripts for this Connector for various systems and will open a place where scripts can be published for reuse.

Release Candidate of Generic SQL Connector

The Generic SQL Connector will allow you to connect to any database where you have an ODBC driver available. It enables new features compared to the built-in MA such as support for Stored Procedures, running SQL scripts, built-in delta import support, import multiple object types, connect to multiple tables, and much more. This Connector is built on ECMA2.3 which allows schema discoverability to be customized in the Sync Engine UI. A pre-release of the next Sync Engine hotfix is included with the Connector download and is required for the Connector to work.

Release Candidate of SAP Users and Roles/Groups

The updated SAP templates for Users and Roles/Groups allows you to manage Users, Roles, and Groups in SAP. This also include password sync for Users to SAP. The Connector will make sure roles are represented as groups to make it possible to manage these with BHOLD.

If you have participated in any other Connector preview program you will have access to the Release Candidate downloads. If you have not participated before then to get access to the preview programs on Connect either join the program “Identity and Access Management”, “FIM Synchronization Service Connectors Pre-release” on http://connect.microsoft.com/directory or follow this link http://connect.microsoft.com/site433/SelfNomination.aspx?ProgramID=6709&pageType=1

Enjoy!
