A hotfix rollup package (build 4.1.3469.0) is available for Forefront Identity Manager 2010 R2

The hotfix can be downloaded here.

There’s two fixes I’m happy about in this hotfix:

FIM Service
Issue 1
In some rare scenarios in which the Exchange server FIM Service tries to poll approval response email messages, an "ErrorInternalServerTransientError" error is returned. In these scenarios, the FIM Service throws an exception.
After you apply this update, you can configure a retry by setting the following values in the configuration file:

mailServerSendOperationMaximumRetryCount="3"
mailServerSendOperationRetryIntervalInMilliseconds="1000"

I hit this issue when using the Email OTP Gate.  The gate worked great, but when our mail servers got cranky the FIM Requests would fail with Access-Denied because the gate failed to send the email the first time.  This fix makes the gate behave more like the Email Notification Activity, whereby it will retry the email instead of failing.

FIM Synchronization Service
Issue 9

When the Set-MIISADMAConfiguration cmdlet is used in a multidomain environment, a corrupted configuration may occur.

Today this is the best option for automating FIM Sync configuration, so any improvement to FIM Sync PowerShell coverage is a big benefit for automation geeks.
