Overview

To establish secure communication channels between Microsoft Identity Integration Server (MIIS) 2003 and a connected data source, call-based management agents require open ports for each service and protocol that is used. In addition, if password synchronization is enabled, ports must be opened for the Remote Procedure Call service on both the server running MIIS 2003 and all Active Directory domain controllers.

The ports listed here are the default settings for each call-based management agent type. Your call-based connected data source might use different ports than those listed here.

Each connected data source also requires a minimum set of user rights and permissions necessary for MIIS 2003 to authenticate to it, and to add, modify, or delete objects. The user account configured within each management agent must have these user rights and permissions assigned to it in order for the management agent to run correctly. For help with configuring the user rights and permissions for different connected data sources, refer to the Help documentation for that data source.

Management Agent for Active Directory

Minimum Permissions

 

Operation Minimum Permissions

Connect and discover objects in Active Directory

Member of Domain Admins group.

- or -

Replicating Directory Changes permission for each domain of the forest that the management agent accesses. For more information about how to grant the Replicating Directory Changes permission, see the Microsoft web site.

Create, modify, or delete Active Directory objects and attributes

For non-administrative accounts, additional permissions might need to be added as appropriate. For example:

  • To create a new object, the Create All Child Objects permission is required.

  • To delete an object, the Delete All Child Objects permission is required.

For more information about setting the Replicating Directory Changes permission in Active Directory, see Microsoft Knowledge Base article 303972 (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=47854).

Replicate Directory Changes permission. For more information about how to grant the Replicating Directory Changes permission, see the Microsoft web site.

Generic Read permissions on the configuration container

- or -

All of the following permissions:

  • List Contents

  • Read Property

  • List Object



Read objects in the application partition

Generic Read permissions on the configuration container

- or -

Both of the following permissions:

  • List Children

  • Read Property

Create, modify, or delete objects

Generic Write permissions on the configuration container

- or -

Both of the following permissions:

  • Delete Child

  • Write Property

noteNote
These permissions can all be inherited from the partition head. Inheritance is NOT required for the Replicate Directory Changes permission as this permission is only checked at the partition head and therefore is not required at any level below that.

Communication Protocols and Ports

 

Service Protocol Port

LDAP

TCP

389

noteNote
For this management agent type, port 389 is configured as the default port. However, you can change the port number by using Management Agent Designer.

Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) can also be used for this management agent type. Using SSL does not affect the port that is used.

636

noteNote
Port 636 is configured as the default port if SSL is enabled. However, you can change the port number by using Management Agent Designer. Ensure that port 389 is not selected for Exchange Server 5.5 if Active Directory is configured to use port 389 on the same server.

noteNote
If your MicrosoftIdentityIntegrationServer database is running on a remote server running SQL Server, port 1433 is also used for the remote server. This SQL Server database, however, might not be running on the same computer that serves as a connected data source, and it can use a different port. It is strongly recommended that the server running MIIS 2003 and the remote server running SQL Server (if used) not be separated by a firewall.

If the Active Directory schema needs to be updated, you must be a member of Schema Admins groups or Enterprise Admins group.

If the Active Directory schema is already updated, you need to be a member only in the Domain Admins group.

Synchronize passwords from one Active Directory forest to another Active Directory forest, when MIIS 2003 is installed on a member server in a domain in one forest and PCNS is installed on a domain controller in a different forest.

There must be a two-way forest trust established between the Active Directory forests.
