app-store-import-exception

I had an app-store-import-exception on Import run profiles of my FIM MA, while exports continued to work. There was an error in the event log but it was one of these great, long, confusing looking ones – however I wanted to include it to show how actually the clues are there, you just have to find them.

The highlighted parts show it had something to do with a null value in the attribute schema – and this was enough to remind me that I had recently unbound an attribute from the Person object type. All I needed to do to fix this problem was a Refresh Schema of the FIM MA.

Log Name:      Application
Source:        FIMSynchronizationService
Date:          4/9/2011 2:27:51 PM
Event ID:      6500
Task Category: None
Level:         Error
Keywords:      Classic
User:          N/A
Computer:      fim.mydomain.local
Description:
The description for Event ID 6500 from source FIMSynchronizationService cannot be found. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component on the local computer.

If the event originated on another computer, the display information had to be saved with the event.

The following information was included with the event: 

There is an error executing ILM MA full import.

Message: Value cannot be null.

the message resource is present but the message is not found in the string/message table

I've been doing IT for 30 years, and IdM for 15. I live in Australia and build IdM solutions based on Microsoft Identity Manager. I also play the violin, but that doesn't help much with the IdM solutions.

  1. I just hit the same problem with Delta Import today, but schema was up to date.
    Running a Full Import worked fine though, and fixed Delta Import issue.

    Best regards.

  2. Hi Juan. I’ve seen that one too but the detail in the full error should have been different to this one. I can’t remember the exact working, but it tells you to run a full import.
