FIM 2010 R2 SP1 Deployment Prerequisites RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    we are about to deploy FIM 2010 R2 SP1 to achieve the below requirements

    1- Account management: unlock, enable/disable, delete
    2- Group membership: add/remove user to group, 
    3- Schedule for add/remove user to/from groups.
    4- Schedule for enable/disable user.
    5- Link AD account with Oracle system accounts.
    7- Reset/unlock the password either by secret Questions/Answers or alternate Email address.

    now what is the prerequisites (Hardware and Software)

    - if i have SharePoint deployed can i use it or it's better to install the SharePoint Foundation.

    - can we install on preexisting SQL or new SQL server, if we will use a preexisting SQL will we need a new instance or only DB.

    - how many servers are required, what is the best practices.

    Thanks

  • Hi Tika,

    Considering your questions:

    1. You can use pre-deployed SharePoint to build FIM Portal on the top of it, but... it would be easier to maintain "fresh" SharePoint - considering updates and so on. Also if you have SharePoint farm, you would need to install SharePoint binaries on each front-end server of SharePoint, so more licenses would be required.

    2. You can definately use existing SQL as long it is 2008 or later. No new instance is required, but still - it would be easier for you to do any maintenance tasks on separate instance.

    3. From one server (all services on the same server). Basically it depends how many objects (users and groups) you want to manage with FIM.

    With those numbers, I'd go with single server.

  • Thanks,

    i can see the hardware and software requirements for the FIM 2010 R2, is there any changes on the requirements with SP1?

    ...Even though FIM doesn't officially support this kind of combination, I can confirm that FIM does work on Windows Server 2012 R2 with SQL Server 2012 SP1. I do think it will also work on SQL 2014, but like said, this is not OFFICIALLY supported configuration.
