(2016-11-27) Issues With Popup Screens In IE On The MIM Portal Server After Installing/Applying SP1

Posted by Jorge on 2016-11-27


After installing MIM 2016 with SP1 or applying the SP1 update package you may experience issues with popup windows in the MIM Portal. An example is when you for example get a popup window because you click on an MPR object.

-hen doing this remotely on another server, other than the server with the MIM Portal, you may experience the following, which is expected when using any browser.50

However, doing exactly the same on the server running the MIM Portal, you may experience the following when using IE, which is NOT expected! It keeps loading, and loading, and loading….

The solution for this problem is quite easy!

On the MIM Portal server, open Internet Explorer and then open its internet options. On the “General” tab click the “Settings” button. Then click the “View Files” button.

After clicking the “View Files” button, a Windows Explorer window opens. Click in the files section somewhere, press {CTRL]+[A] and then press [DEL]. Close all the windows by either closing them or clicking [OK].

After doing this, popup windows with IE on the MIM Portal server should work OK again as expected!

Jorge

(2016-11-23) Microsoft Identity Manager (MIM) 2016 Service Pack 1 Packages

Posted by Jorge on 2016-11-23


Somewhere in September Microsoft released SP1 for MIM  2016 as you can read here. The first package was MIM 2016 with SP1 already included. If you wanted to install SP1 on your current deployment you had to uninstall first and reinstall with MIM 2016 with SP1 included where you would reuse all DBs. This procedure is described here. However, for some customers uninstalling everything and reinstalling it is a little bit too much. The impact and downtime is not acceptable. Because of that Microsoft has also released a SP1 update package that can be deployed on existing MIM 2016 deployments.

There is a subtle different of which you must be aware:

  • MIM 2016 with SP1: build 4.4.1237.0
  • SP1 update package: 4.4.1302.0

As you can see the builds are different! Please be aware you cannot apply the SP1 update package to a deployment already running MIM 2016 with SP1. You can only apply it when running MIM 2016 RTM.

Cheers,
Jorge
