The Ultimate FIM File Connector

May 15, 2012 at 12:37 AMHenrik Nilsson

It’s available on CodePlex now - FIM Ultimate File Connector


  • Just the basic File Connector supporting the following OOB file formats:
    Attribute Value Pair (AVP)
    Directory Services Markup Language (DSML)
    LDAP Data Interchange Format (LDIF)

    …But has the following extra functionality:
    Full Export that before ECMA had to be handled externally from FIM/ILM/MIIS
    Files can be managed at FTP, FTPS, SFTP, SCP and File System Locations (remote from the Extensions folder)
    Files can be compressed/extracted with or without encryption/decryption
    Substitution of date and time values in file names

I would love all possible input like suggestions on how it could get better, ideas for new functionality but also the bad things otherwise how can I make it better…

Role Management in FIM?

September 23, 2011 at 4:38 PMHenrik Nilsson

It was announced today that Microsoft acquires “certain Assets”of BHold company but the roadmap isn’t clear yet.
Unaware of all products from BHold I guess it’s BHold’s Role Management pieces Microsoft lays their hands on or at least I hope it is…

Microsoft’s “Pathway”
Kuppinger Cole’ announcement

I wonder what this means for Omada? Or as Ian Glazer(Gartner) says:
If you get acquired by Microsoft (or Quest), you win! If you don’t get acquired, you lose and the risk to your market increases.  BHOLD wins the Microsoft IAG lottery
