element

The following sections describe attributes, child elements, and parent elements.

Attributes

 

Attribute Type Required Description

step-id

GUID of step

yes

Contains the GUID of the step from the run profile.

step-number

number

yes

Contains the sequence number of the step within the run, starting with 1.

Child Elements

 

Element Min Occurs Max Occurs Description

<current-export-step-counter>

1

1

Contains a number (sometimes called the current export batch number) that is associated with the management agent. It is incremented each time an export run-step is run for this management agent.

<end-date>

0

1

Contains the date and time at which the step completed.

noteNote:
This element is present only if the step has completed.

<export-counters>

0

1

Contains statistics on the number of changes that are sent out. If the step type is export, this element is present.

<inbound-flow-counters>

0

1

Contains information about the number of disconnectors that became connectors during this run, and the disposition of existing connectors.

<last-successful-export-step-counter>

1

1

Contains the <current-export-step-counter> of the last export run step that completed in its entirety. This number is sometimes called the last successful export batch number of the management agent.

<ma-connection>

1

1

Stores information about the connection between the management agent and the connected directory. It can appear for both import and export runs. The management agent reports the server it connected to, and also the servers it failed to connect to. The management agent reports management agent-specific error information, which is helpful in debugging the problem.

<ma-discovery-counters>

0

1

Contains the values of some management agent discovery counters.

<ma-discovery-errors>

0

1

Contains an XML description of errors that were encountered. This element is present only if the step does an import against a connected directory and the management agent hit errors (as opposed to synchronization errors).

<mv-retry-errors>

0

1

Contains information about objects that the FIM Synchronization Service could not synchronize.

noteNote:
This error never occurs on export runs.

<outbound-flow-counters>

0

1

Contains a tag that records the counts of provisioning and export attribute flow. If the step involves applying changes from the connector space to the metaverse, there may be one or more provisioning changes or export attribute flow. Each management agent for which provisioning or non-trivial export attribute flow occurs, there is an <outbound-flow-counters> tag.

<staging-counters>

0

1

Contains statistics on the staging of the entries that were imported. If the step involves importing from a connected directory or from a drop file, this element is present.

<start-date>

1

1

Contains the date and time at which the step began.

<step-description>

1

1

Contains an XML description of the step copied from the run profile. It includes information such as step type, subtype, partition name, and management agent-specific information, such as the name of the discovery file (in the case of an XML management agent).

<step-result>

1

1

Contains a non-localized string that provides the current status of the step.

<synchronization-errors>

0

1

Contains a list of connector space objects that are having problems either synchronizing a connector space delta through to the metaverse and out to other connector spaces, or pushing an export delta out to the connected directory.

Parent Elements

 

Element Description

<run-details>

Stores information about a single management agent run.
