CRM 2013 External DNS Records RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Everyone!

    We have successfully completed the installation and configuration of CRM 2013 with Claims Based authentication and also enabled IFD. Everything works fine internally. Below is the records we have created.

    schs-crms.schs.sharjah.ae (For Internal CRM)

    sharjahcityforhumanitarianserv.schs.sharjah.ae (Record created for Internal CRM and Also Public Record Created)

    adfs.schs.Sharjah.ae (Record created for ADFS Server Internally and Also Public Record Created)

    There are 2 more records dev.schs.sharjah.ae and auth.schs.sharjah.ae which are created and the IP for this records are linked to the server where CRM has been installed. Are these 2 records created correctly and to the right location. Moreover should both these records be published externally?

    Lastly can we have all these records on a same IP address with different ports or is it advisable to have different public IPs for each

    Kind Regards,

    Sheldon D'souza

  • Hi Sheldon,

    yes your dev.schs.sharjah.ae and auth.schs.sharjah.ae should also configured for external access,

    when adfs page collects the User details it will look for auth.schs.sharjah.ae, so for this has to be point to your public ip.

    The all host headers should point to your public ip for external access.

    Is your CRM deployment and adfs are installed in same server ???????

  • Nope both the CRM and ADFS are on 2 separate servers.

  • Hi,

    Then your DNS should point 

    ADFS.schs.sharjah.ae  points to  adfs installed server 



    Orgname.dev.schs.sharjah.ae points to CRM deployment server internally

    and from externally all host header points to your public IP......!!

    Reply back if have any issues.
