Sure some may argue it can leverage infrastructure improvements, but such arguments are tenuous at best.The FIM Portal works perfectly well today in Share Point 2010, and needs none of the new end user capabilities, or shudder at the thought, a Modern UI.In addition there are a number of security and availability considerations.The FIM Portal is a good example of a composite application built upon Share Point.We will also deploy in a least privilege manner, ensuring recommended account restrictions are in place.First things first, we need our FIM service accounts.Recently Service Pack 1 for Forefront Identity Manger (FIM) 2010 R2 shipped. Along with a bunch of interesting updates and new bits and bobs it is now possible to run FIM on Windows Server 2012 and also to run the FIM Portal component on Share Point 2013.

However there are a number of configuration aspects which must be present and correct, and these differ significantly from what would be considered Share Point “best practices” and in some cases supported Share Point configuration.

Of course we need Active Directory Domain Controllers, Exchange Servers and SQL Servers in our environment.

There will also be a separate machine hosting the FIM Sync service.

This post is not intended to introduce those concepts and therefore is intended for FIM practitioners more so than Share Point professionals new to FIM.

We will be focusing almost exclusively on the FIM Service and Portal components in this article and not talking to the FIM Sync service, Reporting or Certificate Management.

Of course aligning such disparate strategy across wildly different release cycles is impossible, and it’s both unfeasible and unnecessary for the FIM Portal to be re-implemented at this stage in line with the new world order.
