  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am installing MIM 2016 SP1 using this guide https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-identity-manager/prepare-server-sharepoint The step where I need to configure SharePoint Foundation 2013 SP1fails: I get prompt for credentials which are rejected three times and then logs in as System account. Credentials rejected are Enterprise admin. Local admin credentials are accepted. Cmdlets used to create Web application:

    $adminCredentials = get-credential “domain\MIMSPAppPool”

    $adminManagedAccount = New-SPManagedAccount -Credential $adminCredentials

    New-SpWebApplication -Name “MIM Portal” -ApplicationPool “MIMAppPool”
    -ApplicationPoolAccount $adminManagedAccount -AuthenticationMethod
    “Kerberos” -Port 80 -URL http://MIMPortal.domain.local

    Any help will be appreciated.

  • The account you are trying to setup needs "Logon as a service" rights on that server.

  • Are you sure the credentials are not already added?

    Login to SharePoint and check managed Service Accounts, see if it is there. If yes, delete it and start over again.

  • Question: Administrator account on Farm account or mimportal?

  • DO NOT EVER DELETE THE FARM ADMIN ACCOUNT.

    The account you need to delete is the one you are having trouble with, which I don't know what you have named it.

    Also, if that account exists in SharePoint, you will get an error "Account exists," not denied creds.  Need to read the message on the PowerShell prompt.

    So, if the account you are having issues with is named "mimadmin" that is the one.
