Over the years I’ve transitioned through a number of laptops and for whatever reason they never fully get put out to pasture. Two specific laptops are used semi-regularly for functions associated with a few virtual machines they hold. Over the last 10 years or so, I’ve been a big proponent of VirtualBox.… keep reading
Today I was performing a standalone installation of the MIM Self Service Password Reset Portals (Enrollment and Reset). These Portals rely on IIS and not the normal prerequisites associated with the MIM Service Portal (SharePoint etc). As such using PowerShell I’d only installed the Web Server Role with the usual dependencies.… keep reading
For those of you that may have missed it, in early 2016 Microsoft released a hotfix for Microsoft Identity Manager that included a change that removed the ability for multiple management agents on a Microsoft Identity Manager Synchronization Server to simultaneously run synchronization run profiles.… keep reading

In the last 12 months I’ve lost count of the number of PowerShell Management Agents I’ve written to integrate Microsoft Identity Manager with a plethora of environments.

In August 2016 I wrote this post on how to use PowerShell to leverage the Microsoft GraphAPI and use Differential Queries. The premise behind that post was I required a Microsoft Identity Manager Management Agent to synchronize identity information from AzureAD into Microsoft Identity Manager.… keep reading
About seven years ago at a conference in Los Angeles I attended I remember a session where a consultant from Oxford Computer Group gave a presentation on integrating Quest Identity Manager (now Dell One Identity Manager) with the Forefront Identity Manager Portal.… keep reading
During the development of an identity management solution I find myself with multiple PowerShell/RDP sessions connected to multiple environments using different credentials often to obtain trivial data/information. It is easy to trip yourself up as well with remote PowerShell sessions to differing environments.… keep reading
