    This will stop and then restart IIS. Once this completes, close the Command Prompt window.

Disable SharePoint Indexing

Because SharePoint Indexing is not required and it can decrease performance, you will need to disable it now.

To disable SharePoint indexing

  1. Log on to FIM1.corp.contoso.com as CORP\Administrator.

  2. Click Start, click Administrative Tools, and then click SharePoint 3.0 Central Administration. This will bring up the SharePoint Central Administration in Internet Explorer.

    Disable SharePoint Indexing

  5. Click SharePoint Services Search Refresh. This will bring up the Edit Timer Job page.

  6. Click Disable.

  7. Close Internet Explorer.

Implement Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) for the FIM Portal

In this step, you will implement SSL for the FIM Portal. You will be requesting a new domain certificate and binding it to SharePoint site. If you recall, the Base Configuration Test Lab guide automatically issues a server certificate to FIM1 when it joins the domain. However, because this certificate uses the FQDN (FIM1.corp.contoso.com) as its common name and not the NetBIOS name (FIM1), you will receive a certificate error when attempting to access the site with the URL https://fim1. If you used https://FIM1.corp.contoso.com as the URL you will not receive the error. However, because this site will be used inside the domain and primarily accessed using https://fim1, you should request a new certificate to use.

To implement Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) for the FIM portal

  1. Click Start, click Administrative Tools, and then click Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager. This will bring up the Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.

  2. On the left, expand FIM1 (CORP\Administrator). This will populate the center pane with icons. Make sure that FIM1(CORP\Administrator) is still selected.

  3. In the center, double-click Server Certificates.

  4. On the right, click Create Domain Certificate. This will launch the Create Certificate Wizard.

  5. For Common Name, type the following text: FIM1

  6. For Organization, type the following text: Contoso

  7. For Organizational Unit, type the following text: IT

  8. For City, type the following text: Anywhere

  9. For State, type the following text: NC

    Implement SSL

  10. Click Next.

  11. On the On-line Certificate Authority page, under Specify Online-Certificate Authority, click Select. This will bring up a Select Certificate Authority page.

  12. Select corp-DC1-ca, and click OK.

  13. On the On-line Certificate Authority page, under Friendly Name, type the following text, and then click Finish:
    FIM1_SSL.
    This will close the Create Certificate Wizard and you should see the newly created certificate in the center pane.

  14. On the left, expand Sites, right-click SharePoint-80, and then select Edit Bindings. This will bring up the Site Bindings window.

  15. Click Add.

  16. Under type, select https from the drop-down list.

  17. Under SSL Certificate, select FIM1_SSL from the drop-down list. Click OK, and then click Close.

  18. On the left, select SharePoint-80 and from the center pane double-click SSL Settings.

  19. Place a check in Require SSL. On the right, click Apply.

  20. Close Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.
