What's New in FIM 2010 RC1
Speakers: Mark Wahl
FIM 2010 RC1 should be shipping about the time of TEC 2009 EMEA, and it includes many improvements and new features. Find out about what’s new in RC1 including architectural changes, performance improvements, and simplified administration and operations. We will also discuss how to migrate from FIM 2010 RC0 to RC1, and how to move from a test environment to production.
なお、同じくTEC2009でFIM関連セッションを担当しているOxford Computer GroupのBlogにRC0からRC1での変更点についてまとめられていたので紹介しておきます。
The changes from RC0 are in these areas:
■Manageability and deployability,
■Performance and scalability, and
■(of course) bug fixes.
There are some little things:
■Object Types are now Resource Types
■OVCs are now RCDCs (resource control display configurations)
There are some bigger things:
■An MPR explorer ? you can list (and access) MPRs associated with a particular requestor, or target set, or workflow etc.
■Powershell commands to export, merge, compare and apply configurations (MPRs, schema details, sets etc.) ? so as to facilitate rollout from test to production etc.
■New health events available in the SCOM management pack
■Authentication of a user in the portal (e.g. for self-service) is now done by objectSID and not by sAMAccountName
■Patches after RC1 will be delivered automagically by Microsoft Update
■There is a new request validation activity which can be used to stop users being able to removed anyone but themselves from groups (previously Fred could remove Jane from a group ? assuming Fred basically had this kind of access)
■During password reset, you can insist that users authenticate themselves (to stop people sneaking up to a computer and changing a password while the owner is getting a coffee)
■All mail messages are customizable
■You can disable MPRs
■You can disable declarative provisioning
There were some rather more technical things:
■You can control how many simultaneous workflows can run (in order to tune performance)
■XPath has been changed so that Contains() now works like SQL Server Full text Search ? while some functions have been removed (like BetweenTime, Alltime) ? see next point
■The suggested way that you find information about who had access to what (historically) is now that you work it out using the request history ? more details are provided when examining Requests in order to aid this, and the data on which functions like BetweenTime depended is no long stored
■There are some updates to MAs (newer versions of connected directories supported)
