Dynamics 2011 IFD how many sub domains are required? Is a wildcard certifacte essential? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are trying to get Dynamics 2011 deployed for internal use. Have followed the excellant video here http://youtu.be/T9jZIxDTsBw 

    We follow that along step by step just fine until he gets to the IFD config wizard. He uses dev.yourdomain.com and auth.yourdomain.com. At that point we deviate as we don't have a wildcard certificate and then things start to go wrong... Also we are using dynamics.threecherries.co.uk for the main dynamics site, so we are not sure what the dev and auth domains should be.

    Specifically, at 22:24 when he goes to htts://org1.contoso.com:444 we get this error:

    Error

    There was a problem accessing the site. Try to browse to the site again.

    If the problem persists, contact the administrator of this site and provide the reference number to identify the problem.

    Reference number: fe9c8ab0-491c-436c-8271-f8dd7b467254

    We also get that error now when we go to https://localservername:444 which worked fine when we checked it at an earlier step. 

    Most of the examples out there refer to using a wildcard certificate, is this essential? How many sub domains are required and what are they?

    Many thanks in advance,

    Dave.

Answers

  • You should have min of 5 sub domain certificate or a wildcard certificate.

    auth.domain.com

    dev.domain.com

    adfs.domain.com

    org.domain.com

    internal.domain.com

     

    You can also use self-signed certificate.

  • If you install AD FS 2.0 and CRM on the same server do you still need to setup auth.domain.com, dev.domain.com, and adfs.domain.com?  They all point to the same IP address so it would appear to be redundant.  Can you just refer to internal.domain.com where the examples refer to auth.domain.com, dev.domain.com, and adfs.domain.com?

     

    Thanks,
    Matt

  • Hi Matt,

    That's exactly what we thought, I think it may cause an issue though for IIS when it is using the subdomain to pass it through to the appropriate site...

    Cheers,

    Dave.
