SharePoint Installation Topology RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am planning a SharePoint farm deployment. The topology that works for us is the perimeter back to back topology with only the Web front end in the perimeter network. The website needs to support SAML 2.0 so we need to use ADFS as well. The question I have is that is there any way of not installing the SharePoint Central Admin website on the Permiter network and have it deployed behind the firewall as well?

  • Yes, this is possible.

    To do this, you need to have at least two servers with the Web Application service running (ie two WFE servers) -- one in your perimeter network, and one in your LAN. You need to ensure you have the requisite ports open between the servers (SharePoint, SQL, AD DS, AD FS) to accommodate authentication, authorization, SQL connections, solution deployment and any other communication.
