Hi Everyone,

I am interested to know how to change the password of FIM user, if I logged in as Administrator in FIM portal.
I did not found any useful information/configuration to achieve the password change as a helpdesk Administrator, but I came across few articles saying Admin changing user password is not supported in FIM.
Is it possible to change the FIM user password  if I logged in to FIM portal as helpdesk Administrator?
Is FIM resource management client from CodePlex supports Admin changing user password ?

I will look forward for help.

There are quite a few SharePoint web parts available that will allow an admin or help desk user to directly change an account password directly on Active Directory.

Look into the System.DirectoryServices namespace:


then the DirectoryEntry.Invoke("SetPassword", ...) method.
