INTRODUCTION

A hotfix rollup package (build 3.3.1087.2) is available for Microsoft Identity Lifecycle Manager (ILM) 2007 Feature Pack 1 (FP1). This hotfix rollup package resolves the following issues.

Issue 1

Consider the following scenario. You use a custom management agent that is based on the Extensible Management Agent. You configure this management agent as Export Only. In this scenario, when a call to deprovision a connector space object in this management agent occurs, the connector space object becomes orphaned. This issue occurs if the deprovisioning rules are set to make the connector space object a disconnector object. You may also experience the following symptoms:
  • You cannot join the connector space object to a metaverse object.
  • When you view the connector space object in the Joiner, the connector space object displays no attribute values.

Issue 2

The Microsoft.metadirectoryservices.dll file is not strong-name signed. Therefore, you cannot build strong-name packaged management agents.

Issue 3

The smart card profile template does not populate the subject key identifier (SKI) as expected.

Issue 4

The Certificate Lifecycle Management component of ILM (also known as CLM) does not allow you to restrict certificate issuance on a specific organization unit (OU) to a single Enrollment Agent.

Issue 5

CLM is now supported on the Windows Server 2008 Enterprise Edition 32-bit processor architecture.

Issue 6

Consider the following scenario. A primary smart card and a duplicate smart card are issued. Then, you renew the certificates for the smart cards by using online certificate updates. In this scenario, the primary smart card and the duplicate smart card receive different certificates.

For detailed information about these issues, see the "More Information" section.

Detailed information about the issues that are resolved

Issue 1

This issue occurs because the connector space object does not have a confirming import. Therefore, the connector space hologram for the connector space object is not created. The connector space hologram contains the information that is used for operations, such as join operations.

Before you apply this hotfix rollup package, you cannot replace the orphaned connector space object except by deleting the connector space object. This hotfix rollup package causes the connector space object to be updated by using information that confirms the export and that fills the connector space hologram.

Note This hotfix rollup package applies only to custom management agents that you create by using the Extensible Management Agent and that you configure as Export Only.

Issue 2

In this hotfix rollup package, the Microsoft.metadirectoryservices.dll file is changed to allow for strong-name signing of rules extensions and of data source extensions. Therefore, you may have to change the existing Microsoft Visual Studio projects to use the strongly named Microsoft.metadirectoryservices.dll file.

The ILM Synchronization Service now provides the following DLL files that define the interfaces and the types for the rules extensions and for the data source extensions:
  • Microsoft.metadirectoryservices.dll
  • Microsoft.metadirectoryservicesex.dll
The Microsoft.metadirectoryservices.dll file is the version that was released in earlier versions of the synchronization server. The version of the Microsoft.metadirectoryservices.dll file that is provided in this hotfix rollup package lets the existing rules extensions and the existing data source extensions continue to function without recompilation. However, when you create new rules extensions and new data source extensions or when you recompile the existing rules extensions and the existing data source extensions, references to the Microsoft.metadirectoryservices.dll file result in compiler errors. Specifically, you receive the following compiler error message when you reference this version of the Microsoft.metadirectoryservices.dll file:
Error 1 The type or namespace name Name could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)
Note In this error message, Name is a placeholder for the name of a function or of a type that is found in the Microsoft.MetadirectoryServices namespace.

After you apply this hotfix rollup package or later hotfix rollup packages, you must reference the strongly named Microsoft.metadirectoryservicesex.dll file when you create new rules extensions and new data source extensions or when you recompile the existing rules extensions and the existing data source extensions. The strongly named Microsoft.metadirectoryservicesex.dll file contains the implementation that was formerly contained in the Microsoft.metadirectoryservices.dll file. The new file is functionally the same as the previous file except for strong-name signing.

When you create new Visual Studio projects from Identity Manager, the Visual Studio projects reference the new Microsoft.metadirectoryservicesex.dll file. If you create your own Visual Studio projects by using Visual Studio, you must make sure that you reference the new Microsoft.metadirectoryservicesex.dll file. If you recompile an existing Visual Studio project, you must make sure that you delete the reference to the Microsoft.metadirectoryservices.dll file and add a new reference to the Microsoft.metadirectoryservicesex.dll file.

For the existing rules extensions and for the existing data source extensions, no recompilation is required. These extensions continue to function correctly.

Issue 3

When you enroll a user in a profile template that is enabled for smart cards, the certificate that is issued by the profile template does not contain the SKI.
Steps to reproduce this issue
  1. You configure a new certificate template by duplicating the Smartcard User certificate template in the certification authority (CA).
  2. You publish the certificate template.
  3. You create a new profile template for the certificate template that is enabled for smart cards.
  4. You create a new profile template for the certificate template that is not enabled for smart cards.
  5. You enroll a user in both profile templates that you created in steps 3 and 4.
Both certificates that are issued through CLM should have the SKI because both certificates are issued from the same certificate template. However, the certificate that is issued by the profile template that is enabled for smart cards does not contain the SKI. The certificate that is issued by the profile template that is not enabled for smart cards contains the SKI.

Issue 4

Before you apply this hotfix rollup package, CLM does not examine the CLM Enrollment Agent extended permission when a request is executed. Therefore, anyone who is an Initiate Enroll Request principal on a profile template can execute the request for all subscribers who can enroll for the profile template, regardless of his or her permissions on the user object. Companies cannot implement more granular workflow permissions. For example, companies cannot allow for the managers in a sales OU to enroll users in only that OU.

After you apply this hotfix rollup package, the person who executes a request must also have the CLM Enrollment Agent permission on the subscriber in Active Directory. This behavior lets companies use a single profile template and lets companies implement more granular workflow permissions. You can grant a requestor the CLM Enrollment Agent permission either on the user object directly or on a group of which the subscriber is a member.

Issue 5

CLM is now fully supported on the Windows Server 2008 Enterprise Edition 32-bit processor architecture. Installation on Windows Server 2008 requires a full setup package. This setup package is included in ILM 2007 FP1 Service Pack 1 (SP1).

Issue 6

Because of this issue, a file that is encrypted by the certificate on the primary smart card cannot be decrypted by using the duplicate smart card.

After you apply this hotfix rollup package, the primary smart card and the duplicate smart card receive identical certificates after you renew the certificates by using online certificate updates.

Important If you apply the CLM part of this hotfix rollup package, how CLM accesses Active Directory is changed. For more information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
