MIM2016: Configuration best practices with MIMCheck


My fellow MVP Jeff Ingalls released a new cool tool to check your MIM solution against well known best practices. There was a FIM 2010 R2 BPA (Best practice analyzer) in the past but that tool has not get updates for a long time.

So Jeff decided to create his own tool putting in all the know best practices spread over the internet.

These are the bullet points of MIMCheck:

A read-only, stand-alone, remote, command-line tool that performs Microsoft Identity Manager best practice analysis checks.

Version 1.0 features include:

  • 38 best practice task checks including data integrity checks of the synchronization service database
  • Run an entire category of tasks: syncserver, portalserver, syncdb, portaldb
  • Manually specify synchronization or portal server names, ports, instance names, and database names
  • Export all tasks, description, and references to output without performing any action
  • Verbose output which includes task names, which can be used to run the task individually, requirements to run the task, reference(s) for further reading, a description of the task, number of errors, and a task result.
  • Redirection of output to a datetime name stamped file for periodic automation
  • Digitally signed
  • Licensing options available for consultants and consulting companies who which to use the product as a service and/or charge for the use of the software.

You can download the tool from here: http://www.ingallsdesigns.com/downloads.html

You can drop Jeff a mail for feedback or feature requests.

He did also a small presentation of the tool at the MIM Team User Group meeting yesterday, so you can wait for the recording of that presentation available on the Unify Solutions youtube channel within a few days.
