Installing the Microsoft Identity Manager 2016 Service and Portal (With SSPR) – Clean Install


As you may be aware, the new version of identity – Microsoft Identity Manager 2016 – has been released. While the in-place upgrade of the service and portal from FIM 2010 R2 to MIM 2016 is covered in great detail here, I would like to take some time and step through a brand new fresh install of the MIM 2016 service and portal server. This, of course, assumes the MIM 2016 sync service has already been installed. For a post covering that installation, please see here.

 

The environment I’m using is Windows Server 2012 with SQL Server 2012 SP1 and SharePoint Foundation 2013. To use SharePoint Foundation 2013 some additional configuration is necessary. Luckily, The Connector Space has your back and a configuration script to do the work for you can be found here. The remaining prerequisites (.Net, SQL Native Client if SQL is off-box, etc.) remain largely unchanged from FIM 2010.

 

To begin, navigate to the installation media and double-click on “FIMSplash” to run it. This will open the MIM installation menu:

Under “Identity Manager Service and Portal”, select “Install Service and Portal”, then click “Run”

clip_image004

 

This will launch the “Microsoft Identity Manager 2016 – Service and Portal” installation wizard. Click “Next” to continue.

Read and accept the EULA, then click “Next”

clip_image008

 

Choose whether or not to participate in the improvement program, then click “Next” to continue.

In this scenario, we will also be installing the Password Registration and Password Reset portals. If you do not wish to install these, deselect them here. Similarly, if you would like to install MIM Reporting or Privileged Access Management (PAM) select them here. For either of the above two scenarios, check back later as we will be documenting both in the near future. Click “Next” to continue.

Enter the Microsoft SQL database and instance name, as well as the database name (FIMService) and select “Create a new database”. Click “Next” to continue.

clip_image014

 

Enter a mail server or relay for MIM to use for mail notification, and select any appropriate checkboxes, then click “Next” to continue.

clip_image016

 

Select “Generate a new self-issued certificate”. Alternately, you may also choose to “Select a certificate in the local certificate store” if you have a CA. Either way, click “Next” to continue.

clip_image018

 

Enter the desired “Service Account Name”, as well as the “Service Account Password”, “Service Account Domain” and “Service Email Account”, then click “Next” to continue.

clip_image020

 

As with FIM 2010, you may receive a warning message here. Click “Next” as we will address this later.

clip_image022

 

Enter the name of the “Synchronization Server” (in this case, the localhost), as well as the “MIM Management Agent Account”, then click “Next”

clip_image024

 

Enter the “MIM Service Server Address”, then click “Next” to continue.

clip_image026

 

Enter the name of the “Sharepoint site collection URL:”. Please not that in FIM 2010, we typically left this as default (http://localhost). However, seeing as how SharePoint 2013 requires additional configuration (such as performed by the configuration script, courtesy of The Connector Space), we need to be sure to enter this as configured. Click “Next” to continue.

clip_image028

 

Enter a “Registration Portal URL” to be used for password self-service. *Please Note* If you did not select “Password Registration Portal” earlier, you will not see this screen. Click “Next” to continue.

clip_image030

 

Check both boxes, then click “Next”. *Please Note* If you did not select “Password Registration Portal” earlier, you will not see this screen. Click “Next” to continue.

clip_image032

 

Enter an “Account Name” under which password registration should run, along with a “Password”, the “Host Name” and “Port”. Check the box to “Open port in firewall” then click “Next” to continue. *Please Note* If you did not select “Password Registration Portal” earlier, you will not see this screen. Click “Next” to continue.

clip_image034

 

As with FIM 2010, you may receive the following message. If so, click “Next” to continue.

clip_image036

 

Enter the “MIM Service Server Address”, and select either “Portal is hosted on an IIS site which can be accessed by extranet users” or “Portal is hosted on an IIS site which can be accessed only by intranet users”, then click “Next” to continue.

clip_image038

 

Enter an “Account Name” under which password reset should run, as well as a “Password”, “Host Name” and “Port”. Check the box to “Open port in firewall”, then click “Next” to continue.

clip_image040

 

As with FIM 2010, you may receive the below message. Click “Next”.

clip_image042

 

Enter the “MIM Service Server Address” and select either “Portal is hosted on an IIS site which can be accessed by extranet users” or “Portal is hosted on an IIS site which can be accessed only by intranet users”, then click “Next” to continue.

clip_image044

 

Click “Install” to begin the installation.

clip_image046

 

Depending on your environment, this may take several minutes. During this time, you may see several windows open and close. Fear not as this is expected behavior.

Click “Finish” to complete the installation.

clip_image048

 

Here we see the newly installed Microsoft Identity Manager 2016 Service Portal.

Clicking on “About Forefront Identity Manager” at the bottom of the list on the right-hand side shows:

This allows us to verify that it is in fact the correct version number.

    For a FIM 2010 R2 environment that runs SSPR only (used the script from TechNet to install the SSPR) how can we migrate the existing password registration info and user profile over to a new clean mim environment? Would appreciate any insight.

  2. Russ says:

    What about installing it on a Sharepoint 2013 Foundation Farm

    1. After SPF 2013 is installed either in “standalone” or within a “Farm” and all SPF updates have been installed the installation is the of the Portal is the same with the only caveat being that any updates that are applied to an instance of the SPF must be applied to all instances of the SPF.

    Excellent – so what next?

  5. Steve says:

    Will you be posting an article on how to migrate from FIM 2010 running on older hardware to MIM 2016 on new hardware?

    Thanks

    When are you going to add the requirements for the MIM Reporting?
