Installing Configuration Server

Following are the prerequisites for the CCF Configuration Server:

  • Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2003 with the latest SP - for the CCF framework.
  • Microsoft Internet Information Server 6.0 or 7.0 – to manage CCF Web services
  • Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0 or 3.5 available from Microsoft – You can verify whether you have .NET Framework 3.0 installed by either of the following methods:
    • On a machine that is not a server or does not have IIS installed, open Windows Explorer and navigate to <install Drive>\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework. If .NET 3.0 is installed, the folder is listed with the version number v3.0.
    • Click on Start -> Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs. Ensure Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0 is available in the list of programs.

The Configuration Server might be prone to Reflection Attacks that might compromise the security of your environment. In order to prevent reflection attacks, it is recommended that you deploy configuration service with security and encryption. For more information about deploying security and encryption for CCF environments, see Planning for security, Authorization, and Data Protection.
