Updated: January 11, 2013
Applies To: Forefront Identity Manager 2010
By using the BHOLD Model Generator module, you can structure data from authoritative sources that contains user and organizational information along with access control lists (ACLs) into a model that can be used in administering BHOLD.
Before installing the BHOLD Model Generator module, you must install the following:
BHOLD Core module on the server on which you plan to install the BHOLD Model Generator module. For information about installing the BHOLD Core module, see BHOLD Core Installation.
The Microsoft OLE DB Provider for Microsoft Jet must be installed. For more information see this article.
Do not install BHOLD Model Generator in your production network. BHOLD Model Generator is intended to be used offline in a staging environment to create a normalized role model that you can import into your enterprise role model. Running BHOLD Model Generator in your production network can result in loss of your existing role model.
For more information about general requirements for installing BHOLD Suite SP1, see Microsoft BHOLD Suite SP1 Installation Guide.
Before installing the BHOLD Model Generator module, you need to be prepared to provide the information that the BHOLD Model Generator Setup wizard requires to complete the installation. The following worksheet will help you record that information so you will be ready to supply it when it is needed.
|Use Security Provider on Domain/Machine||When selected, specifies that Active Directory Domain Services security will control access to BHOLD Core.||Select the check box. Important: The installation will fail if this check box is not selected.|
|Domain||Specifies the domain containing the service account that you created when installing BHOLD Core. For more information, see BHOLD Core Installation.||The domain name is supplied automatically by the wizard. Change the name only if it is incorrect. Important: Specify the domain name by using the NetBIOS (short) name, not the fully qualified domain name (FQDN). For example, if the FQDN of the domain is fabrikam.com, specify the domain name as FABRIKAM.|
|User||Specifies the logon name of the BHOLD Core service user account.||Write the user account name here:|
|Password||Specifies the password of the service user account.||Write the password here: Important: Be sure to keep this password in a hidden, secure location.|
|Use integrated Security||Specifies that Windows Authentication is used to access the database.||Select the check box if Windows Authentication is used to connect to the SQL Server. Clear the check box if SQL Server Authentication is used. The database must have been created before running BHOLD Core Setup If SQL Server Authentication is used. Note: If Windows Authentication is used, you must be logged on with an account that has the sysadmin server role on the database server. Important: Use SQL Server Authentication only in test environments. Microsoft strongly recommends using Windows Authentication in production deployments.|
|Database User and Database Password||Specifies the user name and password of a user with the sysadmin server role on the database server. These values are supplied only when SQL Server Authentication is used.||Write the SQL Server user name here:|
Write the SQL Server user password here: Important: Be sure to keep this password in a hidden, secure location.
|Database Server and Database Name||Specifies the NetBIOS name of the database server and the name of the backup database that BHOLD Model Generator Setup will create. If you are not using the default database server instance, specify the database server instance in the form <server>|
Microsoft recommends that you name the backup database using the name of the BHOLD Core database followed by
|Write the server (or server and instance) name here:|

To install the BHOLD Model Generator module, log on as a member of the Domain Admins group, download the following file and run it as administrator on the server that you intend to install the BHOLD Core module on:
- BholdModelGenerator <Version>_Release.msi
Replace <Version> with the version number of the BHOLD Model Generator release that you are installing.
To run the program file as an administrator, right-click the file and then click Run as administrator.
After installing the BHOLD Model Generator module, you must prepare either a three- or five-file set of input files that provide the information that this tool uses to construct your role model. For information about how to structure these files, see Microsoft BHOLD Suite Technical Reference.
When the files are ready to be imported, log on by using the account that you used to install the BHOLD Model Generator module, and then use the BHOLD Model Generator portal to import the files. The BHOLD Model Generator portal provides a wizard that steps you through the process of creating a role model by using the information in the input files.
