Starting work on a New FIM MA for Certificate Management

Been thinking about doing this for a couple years now, so finally getting a start and should have something to post in a couple weeks.

The idea is to create a new MA and post it to CodePlex for people that want to integrate FIM CM with the FIM Service and the FIM Sync Engine.

Both FIM CM and the FIM Service have workflow engines.  In the FIM Service we have Management Policy Rules, and in FIM Certificate Management we have Profile Templates.  Before FIM the only integration story was really to create a management agent, which was of course delivered in ILM 2007.  Now with FIM we have the opportunity for even more integration, which I hope to facilitate with this effort.

My development environment (building it now) will have the following machines:

DC – Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 DC and CertSrv

CM – Windows Server 2008 R2 X64 with SQL and FIM CM

FIM – Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 with SQL and FIM Service and Portal

SYNC – Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 with SQL and FIM Sync

At the moment I’m not planning on building or testing this with ILM 2007 FP1 unless I get a lot of feedback to do so.
