Test Lab Guide: Installing Forefront Identity Manager 2010 Synchronization Service

In This Guide

This guide contains instructions for setting up the Forefront Identity Manager 2010 Synchronization Service in a test lab based one new server computer, two preexisting server computers, and one preexisting client computer. The resulting Forefront Identity Manager 2010 Synchronization Service test lab demonstrates and verifies installation. This test lab guide is a smaller modified version of the Forefront Identity Manager 2010 test lab guide. This test lab guide is being provided for situations where a full installation of Forefront Identity Manager 2010 is not required. This test lab guide does not cover installing the Forefront Identity Manager 2010 portal or any of the features that require a full installation of Forefront Identity Manager 2010. This guide should only be used when only the Forefront Identity Manager 2010 Synchronization Service is required.

ImportantImportant
The following instructions are for configuring a Forefront Identity Manager 2010 Synchronization Service test lab using a scaled-out deployment. That is, the FIM Synchronization Service 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 Synchronization Service 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 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 Synchronization Service is deployed with:

  • One computer running the FIM Synchronization Service named FIM1. FIM1 uses the Windows Server® 2008 R2 Enterprise Edition operating system.

  • One preexisting server running SQL Server® 2008 R2 Enterprise, named APP1.

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 Synch Service TLG Arch

This test lab will guide you through the Forefront Identity Manager 2010 Synchronization Service 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 Synchronization Service. 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.

Hardware and Software Requirements

The following are required components of the test lab:

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

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

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

  • The files for Forefront Identity Manager 2010 Synchronization Service Update (KB978864).

  • The files for Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Feature Pack, April 2009 - Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Native Client.

The following table provides a summary of the Microsoft software that is used in this guide.

Forefront Identity Manager 2010 Synchronization Service Update (KB978864)

This is a recommended update for the RTM of Forefront Identity Manager 2010. This release provides additional product fixes since the last update release. (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=204578)

Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Feature Pack, April 2009 - Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Native Client

Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Native Client (SQL Server Native Client) (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=204702) is a single dynamic-link library (DLL) containing both the SQL OLE DB provider and SQL ODBC driver. It contains run-time support for applications using native-code APIs (ODBC, OLE DB, and ADO) to connect to Microsoft SQL Server 2000, 2005, or 2008. SQL Server Native Client should be used to create new applications or enhance existing applications that need to take advantage of new SQL Server 2008 features. This redistributable installer for SQL Server Native Client installs the client components needed during run time to take advantage of new SQL Server 2008 features, and optionally installs the header files needed to develop an application that uses the SQL Server Native Client API.

Steps for Configuring the Forefront Identity Manager 2010 Synchronization Service Test Lab

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

  • Step 1: Set up the Base Configuration—The Base Configuration is the core of all Test Lab Guide scenarios. The first step is to complete the Base Configuration.

  • Step 2: Set up the SQL Server 2008 R2 Enterprise TLG—The second step is to complete the SQL Server 2008 R2 Enterprise test lab guide. This provides the database server for your FIM installation.

  • Step 3: Configure FIM1—The third step includes installing the operating system, and then configuring and joining FIM1 to the domain.

  • Step 4: Install FIM 2010 Prerequisite Software—The fourth step walks you through installing prerequisite software.

  • Step 5: Perform FIM 2010 Prerequisites Tasks—The fifth step includes performing prerequisite tasks.

  • Step 6: Install FIM 2010 Synchronization Service and FIM Portal—The sixth step includes performing installation tasks.

  • Step 7: Perform FIM 2010 Post-Installation Tasks— The seventh step includes performing post installation tasks

  • Step 8: Verify the Installation— The eighth step includes verifying the installation was successful

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

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.

  • The Base Configuration TLG—EDGE1, INET1, and CLIENT1 are not required. The steps requiring setup and configuration may be excluded from the setup of the base configuration.
