For this procedure, you can enable and specify a metaverse rules
extension. With metaverse rules extensions, you have more
flexibility in managing identity data between a connector space and
the metaverse. For example, a metaverse rules extension can perform
account provisioning, creating, renaming, and deprovisioning
connector space objects. To complete this procedure, you must be logged on as a member of the MIISAdmins security group.
To enable metaverse rules extensions
In Identity Manager, on the Tools menu, click
In Options, select Enable Metaverse Rules
In Rules extension name, type the name of the rules
extension, or click Browse to locate the rules
To run the rules extension in a separate process, select Run
this rules extension in a separate process.
To enable account management through rules extensions, select
Enable Provisioning Rules Extension.
To reset server configuration settings to their default state,
To create a new rules extension project in Visual
Basic .NET or Visual C#.NET, click Create Rules Extension
Project, select a programming language, and then type a project
name and project location.
To unload a metaverse rules extension if a single object
operation exceeds the specified amount of time, log an error and
continue to the next object, in Global Rules Extension
Settings, select Unload extension if the duration of a
single operation exceeds, and then select a time in seconds.
This time limit will also apply to management agent rules
When you run a rules extension, it must exist in the extensions
folder of the Microsoft Identity Integration Server 2003 root
directory, which by default is C:\Program Files\Microsoft Identity
By default, a metaverse rules extension will run in the same
memory space as the Microsoft Identity Integration Server service. This improves overall performance by
consuming less memory space, but if the rules extension process
fails, it may cause a disruption to the Microsoft Identity Integration Server service. Running a rules extension in a separate
memory space can reduce the risk of a rules extension process
affecting the Microsoft Identity Integration Server service, but
decreases overall performance by increasing the amount of memory
