deploying FIM portals on SharePoint 2013 enterprise Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    We have a SharePoint 2013 Enterprise farm and I was wondering if I could deploy the FIM portals on this version of SharePoint as the MS documentation speaks only of SharePoint Foundation. Technically I am pretty sure it can be done but  I need to know if I would be supported by Microsoft in that scenario.

  • You don't want to do that. The FIM Portal should be installed in its own instance of SharePoint (because you normally turn off Indexing of that SharePoint instance). That being the case there is no reason to use Enterprise unless you want to pay Microsoft for the additional licenses to SharePoint Enterprise. Plus it is not officially supported.

    From ( ) you can install FIM Portal on SPF 2013 if all of the four conditions are true:

    1. The SharePoint 2013 site collection is running in      2010 experience mode
    2. Server-side viewstate is to be disabled.
    3. Self-service upgrades on SharePoint Foundation 2013      from SharePoint 2010 experience mode to 2013 experience mode are not      allowed
    4. Claims-based      authentication is turned off
