Installing HA Fim Service RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All 

    im following this guide to install FIM portal and Service with load balancing

    http://www.harbar.net/articles/fimportal.aspx 

    All went well, after modifying some of the scripts, but now the question is when i install the FIMservice on the second node do i create a new DB or i reuse the existing one ?

    Also when installing the password reg and res portals, inorder to make them externally accessible all i need to do is just specify the external names only ?

    Thanks in advance

  • 1. First check if you can access http://localhost:5725/ from FIMService machine and http://fimserviceNLBname:5725/ from any computer in domain. If so, you know that at least FIMService is running normally and you have to look for the problem in FIM Portal installation.

    2. Check Event Viewer just after you attempt to access FIM Portal site - it would say if it has a problem with Kerberos delegation or access to FIMService.

  • Hi,

    If you want to set FIMService HA, re-use the same database. After that, create load balancing name for FIMService which would point to both FIMService servers.

    Considering password reset and register sites - yes, you should just make them accessible externally by specifying external names (through bindings, NLB etc)

    As you have those roles divided between servers, remember about SPN configuration for FIMService and FIMPortal accounts

  • Thanks for your answer, but i am now struggling to get the portal up in the first place

    below is what i am doing 

    1.  Configured LB for the 2 fim portal/service machines
    2. Deployed SPF 2013 and configure all the special settings and joined the second machine 
    3. Install fim service and portal on the 1st node 
    4. install fim service on the second node 

    All of the above goes successful until i try to login i get service unavailable in a forefront page

    any ideas if i am doing something wrong ?
