Is it possible to have fim running on only one server? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We are currently in the testing phase, and I was wondering if it was possible to have FIM 2010 R2 running the FIMService, FIMSyncService and FIMPortal all on the same machine.  I am only asking because we are in a testing phase and do not have resources in test for three machines. 

    We do have a dedicated DB server and Active Directory for the test.

    Thank you and my apologies if this has been answered.

  • It certainly is possible, that was in fact how our first test environment was set up. Definitely wouldn't recommend it for a production implementation, but for test/dev it's fine.

  • Hi Scott,

    I'd highly recommend getting a copy of David Lundell's FIM Best Practice book (http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/david_lundell).  It's a great resource with a lot of very good information - it's a must read for anyone using FIM.

    Andrew.
