TAMA Does Not Run Update Script for Management Agent

Together Administration Management Agent (TAMA) in Microsoft Metadirectory Services (MMS) 2.1 creates connector space objects and the Export.ta file, and then optionally runs a TAMA script. However, after you run TAMA, the connector name space objects and Export.ta file are successfully created but the TAMA control script may not run. If the TAMA script does not run, the associated management agent contains the correct connector space objects but the connected directory is not updated. In addition, the operator's log does not report the failure to update the connected directory.


This behavior occurs if the distinguished name (DN) of the management agent contains spaces.


To work around this issue, do not use spaces in the DN when you create management agents. For existing management agents, create a replacement management agent and delete the agent that contains spaces in its name.

NOTE: Renaming management agents is not supported.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Microsoft Metadirectory Services 2.1.
