Test Lab Guide: Demonstrating FIM 2010 R2 Outlook Add-in

Forefront Identity Manager 2010 R2

In This Guide

This guide contains instructions for setting up a test lab based on the Demonstrating Forefront Identity Manager 2010 R2 Outlook Add-in Test Lab Guide and deploying Forefront Identity Manager 2010 using one new client computer. The resulting Forefront Identity Manager 2010 R2 test lab demonstrates and verifies installation. Future test lab guides will demonstrate the powerful functionalities of FIM 2010.

ImportantImportant
The following instructions are for configuring 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 computer running the FIM Synchronization Service and FIM Portal named FIM1. FIM1 uses the Windows Server® 2008 R2 Enterprise Edition operating system.

  • One computer running the FIM Password Reset Portal named FIM2. FIM2 uses the Windows Server® 2008 R2 Enterprise Edition operating system.

  • One preexisting server running SQL Server® 2008 R2 Enterprise and System Center Service Manager 2010 SP1, named APP1.

  • One preexisting server running SQL Server® 2008 R2 Enterprise, named APP2.

  • One preexisting server running SQL Server® 2008 R2 Enterprise, named APP3.

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

  • One preexisting client machine, CLIENT1 with Windows 7 Ultimate x64 and Office Professional Plus 2010.

  • One new client machine, CLIENT2 with Windows 7 Ultimate x86 and Office Ultimate 2007 with SP3.

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.

Architecture

This test lab will guide you through the demonstrating the Outlook-Addin for Forefront Identity Manager 2010 R2. This will be done using both Outlook 2010 and Outlook 2007. 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 with different versions of the Outlook-Addin and demonstrate the functionality of both. 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 Windows 7 Ultimate x32.

  • The product disc or files for Office Ultimate 2007.

  • The product disc or files for Office Ultimate 2007 Service Pack 3.

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

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.

The purpose of this test lab is to demonstrate Outlook 2007 and Outlook 2010 functionality. You may substitute one for the other if you only use a specific version in your environment. For example, if your environment has already moved to Outlook 2010 then you may simply omit the references to Outlook 2007 and instead, use and install Outlook 2010 in its place.

For purposes of this test lab, the reporting and self-service password reset features will not be needed. So if you are running FIM2, APP2, and APP3 on virtual machines, then you do not need to start them.

All of the software used in building this test lab came from MSDN except where noted.

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