ILM 2 release date put back – A WHOLE YEAR!

I’m at TEC 2009 in Las Vegas at the moment, and it was officially announced by Microsoft today that the release date for ILM 2 is now Q1 2010, as opposed to the previously publicised date of “any day now”. We should be getting an RC1 version in Q3 this year. I asked if there…

ILM2 RC0 – Updating Portal objects the no-code way

I am working on a demo scenario :├é┬á Certain information about users (name, department, job title, start date) should come direct from HR or from a simplified User Create form; other account-specific stuff (account name, mail nickname, mail database) should be automatically populated; and the account should be provisioned to AD/Exchange when all information is…

ILM2 RC0 – Codeless Provisioning Step by Step

This post did start with a rant about how much trouble I had getting the codeless provisioning to work – but I’ve been working with it a bit more now, and have sufficiently got the hang of it, so I have rewritten the introduction to this post. This is not an attenpt to change history…

So I know that the group management capabilities of…

ILM2 RC0 – Importing AD groups into ILM

ILM2 RC0 – Getting my head around the new Sync rules

I can see I have a lot to learn with ILM2 (and I’m still in the “I don’t wanna change” phase, so it’s heavy going), but I’m starting with something familiar, and that is import and export flow rules. I knew that there was going to be a web portal way of doing flow rules…

ILM “2” RC0 Part 1 – Installation

So,├é┬á I have a bit of time this week while the year gets started, and thought I would spend it playing with the├é┬álatest evaluation├é┬áversion of ILM “2”. I hope to upgrade my company’s system at some point, so my first plan is to see if I can import the existing ILM 2007├é┬ádatabase into it –…

The ILM “2” beta 3

I recently downloaded the ILM “2” beta 3. I’ve had a bit of a play with it, but this post is not going to be in-depth at all – just some random thoughts.
