CRM & ADFS & SBS Web Applications RRS feed

  • Question

  • I installed CRM 2011 on SBS 2008 on a new website with port 5555. After the installation I had

    Default Web Site *:80(http),808:*(net.tcp),*(net.pipe),localhost(net.msmq),localhost(msmq.formatname)
    Microsoft Dynamics CRM :5555(http)
    SBS Client Deployment Applications connected on *:80(http),BSConnectComputer on *:80(http)
    SBSSharePoint *:987(https),Companyweb on *:80(http)
    SBS Web Applications Sites on *:80(http),*443(https)
    SharePoint Central Administration v3 :4721(http)
    WSUS Administration :8530(http),:8531(https)

    After installing AD FS 2.0 on the default website it stopped working probably because of a conflict with SBS Web Applications Sites which is also using *443. I did go back to just the CRM installation but how should I proceed with the new installation of ADFs?

    1) Disable SBS Web Applicaitons Sites (not sure what that could break)

    2) Change the port for SBS Web Applications. I assume it involves more than just changing the bindings but what else needs to be done?

    3) Somehow combine the two websites (AD FS and SBS Web Applications). How would this be achieved?

  • Hi,

    You need not to disable SBS Web Applications.

    1. You can install ADFS in some other ports(444, .....).

    2. You can also change the ports for SBS Applications, you can create one duplicate default web site with 444 port any other and install ADFS on 444.

    3. I am not sure of combining the two websites.

  • Thanks for the response. Actually, there are three websites competing with port 443, i.e. ADFS, SBS Web Applications and CRM. So what I try to do is having CRM on 443, ADFS on 444 and SBS Web Applications on 445. I hope that makes sense (I try to avoid port numbers for accessing CRM). Now the question is how do I do this:

    * To change the 443 port for "SBS Web Applications" do I just go to IIS->Bindings->Edit->change 443 to 445? Or is there anything else involved?

    * When I previously installed ADFS it did not let me change the port when assigning a certificate. So do I first change the port for "Default Web Site" from 443 to 444? Or how can I assign a different port (444) for ADFS?

    * Now I can change the port for "Microsoft Dynamics CRM" from 5555 to 80. Btw, I don't see a 443 port listed under that website. Why is that? Is that only being added after installing additional components? If so can I again just change the port number through IIS and nothing else.

    Sorry but I am a newbie on this. Believe me I checked a lot of websites and youtube videos but I still did not get this to work installing SBS2008, then SQL, then CRM and then trying but failing to install ADFS because of all the above issues.

  • Hello, I´m getting a similar issue.

    I need to configure in the same server CRM 2011 and ADFS.

    The CRM 2011 it´s working in 443 ports, and the problem is that ADFS use the same port, so I´m trying configuring IIS´s Bindings with port 444 but dosen´t work.
    I´ll continue trying to configure it.

    Now I´ll try  with Khaja Mohiddin´s solution

    2. You can also change the ports for SBS Applications, you can create one duplicate default web site with 444 port any other and install ADFS on 444.

  • Hi,
    If the CRM is installed on port 80, then create a duplicate "Default Web Site" with 444 port and install ADFS on it.

    While configuring ADFS it will take default 444 port and also certificate, you just need to give the name.

    If you have 5 domain certificate then it will display the list of names, you can select from it.
