(2012-09-10) A Hotfix Rollup Package (Build 4.1.2548.0) Is Available For Forefront Identity Manager 2010 R2
Posted by Jorge on 2012-11-10
Microsoft has released a new hotfix rollup package for FIM 2010 R2.
This hotfix fixes a number of issued. More interestingly it fixes an issue that was introduced by the previous hotfix. The previous hotfix rollup package (Build 4.1.2515.0) changes information in the Microsoft.MetadirectoryServicesEx.dll assembly file but does not change the file version number. Therefore, the file version numbers are mismatched when you try to update the file from version 4.1.2273.0 to version 4.1.2515.0.
After applying this hotfix check if all custom code (rules extension DLLs and activities) works as expected, just to be sure! If not, then recompile it.

Issues that are fixed and features that are added in this update
This hotfix addresses an issue in which the digital signature on files that are produced and signed by Microsoft will expire prematurely, as described in Microsoft Security Advisory 2749655
FIM Synchronization Service
Assume that FIM 2010 R2 evaluates the IIF function of an outbound synchronization rule as "Null." For example, FIM 2010 R2 evaluates the IIF function to the jobTitle attribute, and the jobTitle attribute of the metaverse (MV) object has no value. In this situation, the corresponding attribute of the connector space object is not deleted as expected during the synchronization process.
When the ExchangeUtils:CreateMailbox method receives the logon SID for an account, the method requires administrator permissions in Active Directory.
When the FIM password reset activity does not connect to Active Directory, the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) components return a code. The code explains the reason for this failure.
When you perform the "Transform.Common" job when FIM 2010 is operating under a heavy load, the job fails because of a time-out. The time-out occurs when the computer processes the TransformEntityRelatesToEntityFact module.
Common Component (Microsoft.MetadirectoryServicesEx.dll)
Hotfix rollup build 4.1.2515.2 changes information in the Microsoft.MetadirectoryServicesEx.dll assembly file but does not change the file version number. Therefore, the file version numbers are mismatched when you try to update the file from version 4.1.2273.0 to version 4.1.2515.0.
When this issue occurs, you may experience the following symptoms:
You cannot load and run a custom management agent.
You cannot create a new FIM service management agent.
After you apply this hotfix rollup, the version of the Microsoft.MetadirectoryServicesEx.dll assembly file is 22.214.171.124.
The Microsoft.MetadirectoryServicesEx.dll assembly file is included in both the FIM Synchronization service and the FIM Service setup files.
