The purpose or goal of this document is to provide additional assistance, or guidance to the actual Forefront Identity Manager 2010 installation guide. It is meant as a companion document to help in the preparation of your installation of the Microsoft
Forefront Identity Manager 2010 product.
This document is more of a guideline to help make the installation easier.
This is a suggested account, not a mandatory account. The reason it is suggested, is because the installing account needs to have some elevated privileges to get the product installed.
Based on your FIM Solution, you may want to create some other accounts. Here are some other possible accounts that you may consider creating prior to executing the installation of the Microsoft Forefront Identity Manager product.
*NOTE: Remember these are just suggested names for the accounts, and suggested that you create them prior to executing the installation.
The below accounts are very commonly used accounts for common solutions, such as Self-Service Password Reset (SSPR) and GalSync. If your FIM Solution is going to work with other data sources, you may consider creating those accounts now. For example,
if you are incorporating a SQL Server Management Agent you may want to create an account to work with SQL Server, or if you are working with SAP, yu may want to get the SAP Management Agent Account created at this time.
