More information

Issues that are fixed and features that are added by this update


This hotfix addresses an issue in which the digital signature on files that are produced and signed by Microsoft will expire prematurely, as described in Microsoft Security Advisory 2749655 ( .

FIM Synchronization Service

Assume that the DB2 Management Agent tries to connect to a DB2 server that is running on an IBM iSeries V6 server or a later version of an iSeries server. In this situation, theDB2 Management Agent does not connect to the DB2 server.
New feature
When the FIM password reset activity does not connect to the Active Directory, the WMI components returns a code. The code explains the reason for this failure.

Common Component (Microsoft.MetadirectoryServicesEx.dll)

Hotfix rollup build 4.0.3644.2 changed the version number of the Microsoft.MetadirectoryServicesEx.dll assembly file to Then, hotfix rollup build 4.0.3617.2 made additional changes to the assembly file but did not change the file version number. Therefore, the file version numbers are mismatched when you try to update the file from version 4.0.3606.2 to later hotfix rollup builds.

When this issue occurs, you may experience the following symptoms:
  • You cannot load and run a custom management agent.
  • You cannot create a new FIM service management agent.
Note This assembly file is included in both the FIM Synchronization service and the FIM Service setup files.
