Restoring Microsoft Identity Integration Server 2003

If a server running Microsoft Identity Integration Server 2003, SQL Server 2000, or Windows Server 2003, Enterprise Edition stops responding and becomes inoperable, you can restore your metadirectory to the state of your most recent backup. It is strongly recommended that you test your restore procedure before an emergency occurs.

To restore your metadirectory, you need some or all of the following:

To restore the metadirectory

  1. If needed, install a fresh copy of Windows Server 2003, Enterprise Edition.
  2. If needed, install SQL Server 2000 with the same options as the previous installation.
  3. Install MIIS 2003 on your server with the same options as the previous installation. If you are prompted during Setup, insert a floppy disk that contains your MIIS 2003 encryption key.
  4. In SQL Server 2000, restore the MicrosoftIdentityIntegrationServer database.
  5. In Windows Server 2003, Enterprise Edition, use Backup to restore any MIIS 2003 log files or file-based management agent import and export files located in InstallationDirectory\Madata.
  6. If password synchronization was previously enabled, there may be password changes remaining in the queue. You should clear the queue before enabling password synchronization again on the restored server. For more information about clearing the password queue, see Microsoft Identity Integration Server 2003 Developer Reference.
  7. After performing the above steps, run a Full Synchronization to bring your metaverse up to date.
