Test Lab Guide: FIM 2010 R2 Common User and Group Configuration

Forefront Identity Manager 2010 R2

In This Guide

This guide contains instructions for setting up a test lab based on the Forefront Identity Manager 2010 R2 Common User and Group Configuration Test Lab Guide. This is a common configuration that involves bringing Active Directory users and groups into the FIM Portal and allowing users to create groups in the FIM Portal and have them synchronized to AD. The resulting Forefront Identity Manager 2010 R2 test lab verifies the configuration. 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.

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 2010 R2 Test Lab Guide Architecture

This test lab will guide you through the Forefront Identity Manager 2010 R2 configuration 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 and demonstrates how to synchronize Active Directory users and groups into the FIM Portal and how to provision groups from the FIM Portal to AD. 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:

  • No additional software of hardware is required for this test lab.
