Test Lab Guide: Upgrading to Forefront Identity Manager 2010 R2

In This Guide

This guide contains instructions for upgrading the Forefront Identity Manager 2010 test lab to Forefront Identity Manager 2010 R2. This lab will use the pre-existing environment laid out in the Installing Forefront Identity Manager 2010 test lab. Future test lab guides will demonstrate the powerful functionalities of FIM 2010.

A full copy of this document is available for offline viewing here.

The following includes instructions on upgrading the following:

  • SQL 2008 Enterprise SP2 to SQL 2008 R2 Enterprise

  • Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 to SharePoint Foundation 2010

  • FIM 2010 Synchronization Service to FIM 2010 R2 Synchronization Service

  • FIM 2010 Service to FIM 2010 R2 Service.

ImportantImportant
The following instructions are for upgrading a Forefront Identity Manager 2010 R2 test lab using a scaled-out deployment. That is, the FIM Portal and the FIM database will not be residing on the same server. Individual computers are needed to separate the services provided on the network and to clearly show the desired functionality. This configuration is neither designed to reflect best practices nor does it reflect a desired or recommended configuration for a production network. The configuration, including IP addresses and all other configuration parameters, is designed only to work on a separate test lab network.

Attempting to adapt this Forefront Identity Manager 2010 R2 test lab configuration to a pilot or production deployment can result in configuration or functionality issues. To ensure proper configuration and operation for your pilot or production Forefront Identity Manager 2010 R2 deployment, use the information in Planning and Architecture (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=204576) for planning and design decisions and Deployment (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=204575) for the steps to properly configure the Forefront Identity Manager 2010 and supporting infrastructure servers.

Test Lab Overview

In this test lab, Forefront Identity Manager 2010 R2 is deployed with:

  • One preexisting server running FIM 2010 Synchronization Service and FIM Service named FIM1.

  • One preexisting server running SQL Server® 2008 Enterprise named APP1.

  • One preexisting server running Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 with Service Pack 1, named EX1.

The Forefront Identity Manager test lab uses the following subnet:

  • The intranet established by the Base Configuration Test Lab Guide, referred to as the Corpnet subnet (10.0.0.0/24).

Computers on each subnet connect using a hub or switch. See the following figure.

FIM Test Lab Guide Architecture

This test lab will guide you through the Forefront Identity Manager 2010 R2 installation process. The purpose of this test lab is to allow for the creation of a basic test lab environment that consists of Forefront Identity Manager 2010 R2. This test lab guide can be used as a building block for additional test lab guides that demonstrate increased functionality or additional features of Forefront Identity Manager 2010 R2.

Hardware and Software Requirements

The following are required components of the test lab:

  • The product disc or files for SQL Server 2008 R2 Enterprise.

  • The product disc or files for SharePoint Foundation 2010.

  • The product disc or files for Forefront Identity Manager 2010 R2.

Steps for Configuring the Forefront Identity Manager 2010 R2 Test Lab

There are nine steps to follow when setting up the Forefront Identity Manager 2010 R2 test lab based on the Forefront Identity Manager 2010 R2 Test Lab Guide.

Test Lab Guide Specific Information and Instructions

The following section is a list of additional information on configuring the test lab. It also includes items that may be omitted from the test lab guides that this test lab builds upon. This is to allow for quicker deployment.

ImportantImportant
Please note that for this test lab guide, the Volume License version of Forefront Identity Manager 2010 RTM with Update 2 was used. There is a known issue with the MSDN sku of FIM 2010 RTM that prevents it from being able to upgrade to FIM 2010 R2.

The following is a list of general information and instructions

  • Internet Explorer 9 was installed and used on all Servers.

The following is a list of test lab guide specific information and instructions.

  • The Base Configuration TLG—EDGE1 and INET1 are not required. The steps requiring setup and configuration may be excluded from the setup of the base configuration.

  • The Exchange Server 2010 with Service Pack 1 TLG— EX1 is not required but a valid mail attribute is required for the FIMService account. A work around is to populate the mail attribute using ADSIEDIT. Please note that future test lab guides that demonstrate workflow and notification will probably use an Exchange server.

This guide provides steps for configuring the computers of the Forefront Identity Manager 2010 R2 test lab. The following sections provide details about how to perform these tasks.
