Issue

The BHOLD Core root account is also being used by BHOLD FIM Integration to connect to FIM or BHOLD Core.

The BHOLD Core root account is also being used as the service account in BHOLD FIM Integration. By default, the BHOLD Core root account is the account of the user who installed BHOLD Core.

Impact

Using the BHOLD Core root account in BHOLD FIM Integration introduces the risk of rights elevation, compromising the security of FIM and BHOLD.

Resolution

Create a separate account for use by BHOLD FIM Integration and then reinstall BHOLD FIM Integration.

After creating and configuring the BHOLD FIM Integration service account, you must uninstall BHOLD FIM Integration and then reinstall it, specifying the new account.

To uninstall BHOLD FIM Integration

  1. On the BHOLD FIM Integration server, click Start, click Control Panel, and then under Programs, click Uninstall a program.

  2. Right-click Microsoft BHOLD Suite - FIM Integration, click Uninstall, and then click Yes.

To install BHOLD FIM Integration, follow the instructions in BHOLD FIM Integration Installation (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj134093(v=ws.10)), noting the requirements for the accounts specified in Connect to Forefront and Connect to BHOLD Core.
