MIM 2016: New hotfix rollup build available


Yesterday Microsoft released an important Hotfix rollup package for MIM 2016 SP1, the build number is

InfoHotfix rollup package (build is available for Microsoft Identity Manager 2016 Service Pack 1

DownloadUpdate for Microsoft Identity Manager 2016 SP1 (KB4469694)

The main issue fixed is the following:

After installing MIM build or, the ma-data objects are deleted and not recreated in the FIMService, causing all synchronization rules to fail.  After installing this update, this problem no longer happens.

Both builds causing the issue are still listed but not available for download any more. But if you installed one of the above hotfixes I highly recommend to update to the lastest hotfix.

The issue was also discussed here: MIM Portal Sync Rules have become orphaned

  1. Actually had this happen with a customer. Oh the pain.
    Recent releases has been a bit buggy. Also had issues with sync manager not opening.

  2. Hi Peter, i’m having an issue after installing this update at a customer site that had us forced to rollback, we are using FIMAutomation to execute some powershell commands from a FIM service workflow. after installing this update, we are getting an error that the export-fimconfig is not recognized as a cmdlet, etc. i was able to reproduce this in a lab and even after updating to the latest hotfix, the issue still exists.

    1. Hi,
      I cannot reproduce the error.
      I just checked a MIM Solution that has currently this build installed and I can still Load the FIMAutomation SnapIn and after that use the Export-FIMConfig cmdlet.

      Maybe this is an issue for an call to Microsoft maybe.
