Additional IIS site on FIM 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a full working FIM website which I've mostly used for account synchronization (portal is not installed).

    Windows Server 2008 R2
    FIM 2010 R2
    SharePoint Services 3.0
    SQL Server 2008 R2

    I have a requirement within my environment to server up a small website with static pages and I'm thinking of installing an additonal IIS site on my FIM server using a different IP address.

    It's either this or create a virtual machine for what would amount to 3 pages of HTML.

    I'd like some general advice on how to do this and whether installing an additional IIS site on FIM is an unsupported or dangerous thing to do (dangerous in terms of getting me sacked if I broke FIM)....

  • Just a reasonable thinking here: it will not violate any support statements, it will not cause any problems (at least from my experience) so technically there is no issues there. Some operational things to consider: are persons who will manage this IIS same persons as FIM admins (if not, should they have remote access to a FIM box etc.), backup \ patching strategy (you will have to install additional patches on this box.)

    So IMO nothing to worry about and you can go with it.
