In the article I’m testing installing FIM 2010 R2 SP1 on Windows 2012 SCSM 2012 and SharePoint 2013. I’ve got three servers see below of what roles I’ve installed on each server.

I’m just going through the installation to see if there is any gotchas.

I’m not going in detail of configuration for installation of each component steps and assume you already know how it works.

Please read the following articles for more details:

My advice for a successful FIM installation:

  • Always update everything before and after installation
  • Always install with service accounts
  • Always use DNS Aliases instead of server name
  • Always register the SPN’s
  • Use SQL Name aliases
  • Never install using wizards

For this article we call the servers the following:

  • FIM2010R2 – This server will run the following: SQL 2012, FIM Portal, FIM Reporting, SCMS 2012 SP1 console and FIM Sync
  • FIM2010R2Reporting - This server will run the following: SCSM 2012 SP1 Management Server
  • FIM2010R2DW – This server will run the following:, SQL 2012 Reporting services and SCSM 2012 Data warehouse

 

  1. I would recommend that you have the machines connected to the internet so that all updates and install programs can download the latest updates.
  2. FIM2010R2Reporting
    1. Installing SCSM 2012 install without any issues
  3. SCMS 2012 Data warehouse
    1. Install SQL reporting and configure SQL reporting database to connect to FIM2010R2 SQL instance
    2. Installing SCSM 2012 Data warehouse installed without any issues
  4. Register Data warehouse in SCSM 2012 Console
  5. Wait for all management Packs in data warehouse to finish importing before installing FIM portal reporting.
  6. FIM2010R2
    1. Installing SCSM 2012 console no issues
    2. Installing SQL 2012. This went through no issues installing on Windows server 2012.
    3. Update Windows 2012 to the latest updates
    4. Install SharePoint 2013
      1. Please follow the following article for installing SharePoint 2013 make sure not to create a SharePoint collection using the wizard rather follow the guide http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj863242(v=ws.10).aspx doing powershell commands for creating the collection.
      2. Installing SharePoint 2013 make sure to have internet access which makes it easier to install. Run “Install software prerequisites” and it will download all required software for installing SharePoint 2013
      3. I had issues download “windows server app fabric” so I manually downloaded it and install it on the server
      4. I also noticed in my Windows 2012 server that IISADMIN service was disabled and FIM password reset wouldn’t install because it needed it for creating the websites.
      5. For my lab I wanted to install FIM reporting FIM service and Password reset portal on the same box. I got an error that it needed a KB for SCSM 2010 to be installed on the server for FIM reporting to install. I logged a MS call and it looked like a bug in the installation and they suggested that I do a command line install which will bypass the error. Here is the command that I used:
      6. “msiexec /I "Z:\Service and Portal\service and portal.msi" /l*v c:\logs\FIM_install.Log /quiet ACCEPT_EULA=1 MAIL_SERVER="exchange2013.company.co.za" SERVICE_ACCOUNT_NAME="svc-fim-svc" SERVICE_ACCOUNT_PASSWORD="P@ssw0rd" SERVICE_ACCOUNT_DOMAIN="COMPANY" SERVICE_ACCOUNT_EMAIL="svc-fim-svc@company.co.za" SERVICE_MANAGER_SERVER="FIM2010R2REPORTING" SQLSERVER_SERVER=FIM2010R2 SERVICEADDRESS="fimportal.company.co.za" ADDLOCAL=CommonServices,FIMReporting,WebPortals,RegistrationPortal,ResetPortal SQMOPTINTSETTING=0 SYNCHRONIZATION_SERVER_ACCOUNT="COMPANY\svc-fim-fimma" RMS_PORT=5725 STS_PORT=5726 SHAREPOINTUSERS_CONF=1 PASSWORDUSERS_CONF=1 FIREWALL_CONF=1 RESET_FIREWALL_CONF=1 REGISTRATION_FIREWALL_CONF=1 SHAREPOINT_URL="https://fimportal.company.co.za" REGISTRATION_ACCOUNT=COMPANY\svc-fim-pwd REGISTRATION_ACCOUNT_PASSWORD="P@ssw0rd" REGISTRATION_PORT=8905 REGISTRATION_SERVERNAME=FIM2010R2 IS_REGISTRATION_EXTRANET=1 REGISTRATION_HOSTNAME=passwordquestions.company.co.za RESET_ACCOUNT=COMPANY\svc-fim-pwd RESET_ACCOUNT_PASSWORD="P@ssw0rd" RESET_PORT=8906 RESET_SERVERNAME=FIM2010R2 IS_RESET_EXTRANET=1 RESET_HOSTNAME=passwordreset.company.co.za REGISTRATION_PORTAL_URL=https://passwordquestions.company.co.za”
  7. I did the post install scripts for data warehouse and seems to be working.
  8. Done
