Installing the FIM Add-ins and Extensions

Updated: April 5, 2010

Applies To: Forefront Identity Manager 2010

Installing the FIM Add-ins and Extensions

The FIM Add-ins and Extensions components consist of the FIM Add-in for Outlook and FIM Password Reset Extensions.

With FIM Add-in for Outlook, users can join or leave an e-mail-enabled group. In addition, owners and approvers can approve or reject a request of any type made from the FIM Portal or FIM 2010 Office Integration add-in component.

With Password Reset, users can reset their passwords by using an authentication gate from the native Windows logon screen. If users cannot remember their passwords, Password Reset takes the user through the process of gaining a new password.

To install the FIM Add-ins and Extensions

  1. Exit Office Outlook 2007, if it is running.

  2. Depending on the client computer’s architecture, on the FIM 2010 startup screen, click either the Install Add-ins and Extensions, 64 bit or the Install Add-ins and Extensions, 32 bit link.

  3. Run setup.exe, and then follow the instructions in the installation wizard.

  4. On the Custom Setup page, you are prompted for the applications that you want to install. The component FIM Password and Authentication extension installs the GINA/Credential provider and an ActiveX® control for Internet Explorer. On a 64-bit installation, an additional component is available, FIM Portal Authentication Extensions, that installs a 32-bit ActiveX control for Internet Explorer.

  5. On the Configure FIM Add-ins and Extensions page, in FIM Portal Server address, type the name or alias of the server that hosts the FIM Portal. Decided whether you plan to contact the FIM 2010 R2 Portal using http or https (recommended).

  6. In FIM Service service account e-mail address, type the e-mail address in SMTP format—that is, in a format similar to someone@example.com—of the FIM Service service account. Do not type the alias or display name of the account.

  7. On the Configure FIM Add-ins and Extensions page, in FIM Service Server address, type the name or alias of the server that hosts the FIM Service. If the Service and Portal components are installed on the same server, this will be the same value as on the previous page.

  8. On the Configure FIM Add-ins and Extensions page, in the SiteLock box, type all addresses that the users can use to access the FIM 2010 R2 Portal. For example, if users can access the server by using both myfimserver and myfimserver.microsoft.com, enter myfimserver;myfimserver.microsoft.com in this box. If you have FIM Portal and FIM Password Reset Portal on two different servers, enter both addresses in this box.

    noteNote
    This setting allows the ActiveX control that Password Reset uses to initialize without adding the FIM Portal site to the list of Trusted sites in Internet Explorer.

    noteNote
    It is assumed that the site will be in the Intranet Zone. The default Internet Explorer configuration is that the logon only is automatic in the Intranet Zone.

    If you are installing FIM Add-ins and Extensions on a computer running Windows Internet Explorer 7, you also have the option to add the sites specified in the previous box to be added to the list of Trusted sites as well.

    ImportantImportant
    Internet Explorer 7 by default has protected mode on. An ActiveX control cannot contact any external resource unless the site is added to the list of Trusted sites. If you choose not to add the FIM Portal site at this time to the Trusted sites list, you can use another method.

    noteNote
    If you choose to add the sites to the Trusted sites list during this part of the setup, the sites are added to the Local Machine list of Trusted sites so that it can be used by all users on the server. Those sites are not displayed in Trusted sites in Internet Explorer. Those sites are also added to the pop-up blocked exception list.

  9. Click Install.

FIM Language Packs

FIM Service and Portal Language Pack

The FIM Service and Portal Language Pack install additional languages for the FIM Portal. The localized components are both additional SharePoint server solution packs and database upgrades. For this reason, the installation must be completed on every server.
