To learn more about Extended protection visit the KB and Enable the Application Pool to use the service account for Kerberos.
To establish the SPNs for the FIM Service: Open Command Prompt in Admin Server or a DC type the following.
setspn –S sa-fimservice/FIMPortal.microsoftguru.com.au microsoftgurusa-fimservice
setspn –A HTTP/FIMPortal.microsoftguru.com.au microsoftgurusa-fimservice
setspn –A HTTP/FIMPortal.microsoftguru.com.au FIM
FIMPortal.microsoftguru.com.au is the Alias of FIM Server added into host header
microsoftgurusa-fimservice is the account for SharePoint App Pool uses and defined in IIS.
microsoftgurusa-fimservice service account for FIM service
if you cannot add SPN using delegation tab. user computer account and service account attribute tab and add SPN.
select “Trust this user for delegation to the specified services only”.
If the address that the clients use to contact the FIM Portal is not the same as the server FQDN, you have to establish an SPN for HTTP. That is, if you use a CNAME resource record in DNS, have a SharePoint farm, or use NLB, this address must be registered or Internet Explorer cannot use the Kerberos protocol when it contacts the portal. Run the following command:
Install .NET and IIS on FIM Server:
Install Office SharePoint Services:
To implement SSL with a certificate from an existing internal CA. Create a base-64-encoded certificate using this guide “Request and install an Web Server Certificate “ into FIM Server. Bind Web Server Certificate with Sharepoint – 80.

Ensure that the service accounts used by SQL Server Database and SQL Server Agent are either domain accounts or built-in service accounts
To locate databases on different drives
- Start Microsoft SQL Server Enterprise Manager
- Right-click the server, and then click Properties.
- Go to Database settings. Make the necessary adjustments on the Data and Log settings to ensure that the database files are located on a different drive than the operating system.
Configure SQL aliases: If you plan to install FIM Service or FIM Synchronization Service on a server running SQL that is using a non default port, you must create a SQL alias for Setup to be able to contact the SQL server.
To create a SQL alias for Setup to be able to contact the SQL server
- Start the SQL Server Configuration Manager.
- Navigate to SQL Native Client 10.0 Configuration/Aliases.
- Create a new alias with your server information.
You do not have to do the SQL steps if you have a separate SQL server. I am doing it because this is my test environment.

Add the FIM Service service account to the FIM Synchronization Service security groups
- Add the service account used by the FIM Service to the FIMSyncAdmins group. This allows the FIM Service to configure the FIM Synchronization service. If you plan to use the Password Reset feature of FIM 2010, add the service account that the FIM Service uses to the security group FIMSyncPasswordSet. So that the group membership is effective, restart the FIMService service.
Configuring the FIM Service service Exchange mailbox
The following are best practices for configuring Exchange Server for the FIM Service service account.
Configure the service account so that it can accept mail only from internal e-mail addresses. Specifically, the service account mailbox should never be able to receive mail from external SMTP servers.
In the Exchange Management Console, select the FIM Service service account sa-fimservice, right click Properties, click Mail Flow Settings, and then click Mail Delivery Restrictions. Select the Require that all senders are authenticated check box.
Configure the service account so that it rejects mail messages with sizes greater than 1 MB.
Follow the best practice of configuring the Exchange 2007 message size limits. In the Exchange Management Console, select the FIM Service service account sa-fimservice, right click Properties, click Mail Flow Settings, and then click Message Size restriction
Configure the service account so that it has a mailbox storage quota of 5 gigabytes (GB).
Follow the best practice of configuring the Exchange 2007 mailbox size limits:
In the Exchange Management Console, select the FIM Service service account sa-fimservice, right click Properties> Mailbox Settings>Storage Quota
Disabling SharePoint indexing
It is recommended that you disable SharePoint indexing. There are no documents that need to be indexed, and indexing causes many error log entries and potential performance problems with FIM 2010.
To disable SharePoint indexing
On the server that hosts the FIM 2010 Portal, click Start>Click All Programs list, Under Administrative Tools, click SharePoint 3.0 Central Administration.
On the Central Administration page, click Operations. On the Operations page, under Global Configuration, click Timer job definitions.
On the Timer Job Definitions page, click SharePoint Services Search Refresh. On the Edit Timer Job page, click Disable.
Activating the Kerberos protocol only
We highly recommend that you turn off portal authentication that uses NTLM. The Kerberos protocol is a more secure protocol to use.
To activate Kerberos protocol only
- Open Elevated Command Prompt. Locate C:inetpubwwwrootwssVirtualDirectories80
- Type notepad Web.config , Locate the element <resourceManagementClient . . . />
- Add requireKerberos=”true” so that it reads <resourceManagementClient requireKerberos=”true” . . . />
- Save the Web.config file.
- Run iisreset from a command prompt.
Installing the Exchange 2010 Web Service (EWS) Certificate: If your server running Exchange is using a certificate that is untrusted by the FIM Service, the certificate used by the Exchange server must be added to the local certificate store.
To install the Exchange certificate on the FIM Service server
- Open Internet Explorer.
- In the address bar, type https://mailserver/EWS/exchange.asmx. Mailserver is the server running Exchange that you specified when you installed the FIM 2010 component. Select Continue to this Web site.
In the Security Alert dialog box (where it reads Certificate Error), click View Certificate.
In the Certificate dialog box, click Install Certificate. On the Welcome to the Certificate Import Wizard page, click Next.
On the Certificate Store page, select Place all certificates in the following store, and then click Browse. Select the Show physical stores check box, navigate to Trusted PeopleLocal Computer, and select this store. Click OK. Click Next. Click Finish to import the certificate.
Verifying that the certificate and verify that the EWS can be reached
To install the FIM Add-ins and Extensions

On the Configure FIM Add-ins and Extensions page, in FIM Portal Server address, type the name or alias of the server that hosts the FIM Portal. Decided whether you plan to contact the FIM Portal using http or https (recommended). In FIM Service service account e-mail address, type the e-mail address in SMTP format—that is, in a format similar to firstname.lastname@example.org of the FIM Service service account. Do not type the alias or display name of the account.
On the Configure FIM Add-ins and Extensions page, in FIM Service Server address, type the name or alias of the server that hosts the FIM Service. If the Service and Portal components are installed on the same server, this will be the same value as on the previous page.
On the Configure FIM Add-ins and Extensions page, in the SiteLock box, type all addresses that the users can use to access the FIM Portal. For example, if users can access the server by using both FIMserver and FIMserver.microsoftguru.com.au, than enter FIMserver;fimserver.microsoftguru.com.au in this box.
