Here is an issue dealing with accessing the FIM Portal using a Sensitive (cannot be delegated) account.

Running FIM 2010 R2 RC in production and ran into this problem.  As the cause seems to be external to FIM, I think the information is applicable to FIM 2010 as well.


  • Running FIM 2010 R2 RC Portal and Service on SharePoint Foundation Server 2010
  • Use an alias to route directly to the Identity Management Portal (https://myalias  routing to https://myservername/identitymanagement/default.aspx)
  • Configure the FIMService SPNs and delegation properly for both the machine name & alias
  • In the SharePoint - 80 web.config file, use the Alias for the resourceManagementServiceBaseAddress property


When accessing the FIM Identity Management Portal using a restricted account (account is sensitive and cannot be delegated), a Kerberos delegation error was being returned through SharePoint:


An unexpected error has occurred.

The correlation id results in the following :

System.ServiceModel.FaultException: The request for security token could not be satisfied because authentication failed.

at System.ServiceModel.Security.SspiNegotiationTokenProvider.GetNextOutgoingMessageBody(Message incomingMessage, SspiNegotiationTokenProviderState sspiState) 


This configuration was causing calls from the FIM Portal to the FIMSErvice to travel off-box, thus requiring the use of Kerberos Delegation.


Changed the resourceManagementServiceBaseAddress property in the web.config file to point to the machine name hosting the service & portal, and logging into the Portal as a sensitive (cannot be delegated) account no longer returns the exception.
