Host name functioning but FQDN does not work in IIS web site RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Dynamics CRM 2011 site setup to use https on port 5555, and have setup claims based authentication in CRM. What I am having an issue with is that when I try to access my organization via browse using the FQDN of the server from the server (https://crmsrvr.organization.com:5555/org) I am not able to get there successfully from that browser nor any remote browser. I am finding this weird because it is just outright not showing anything and giving me a cant display the web page, but when I access the federation metadata to get Claims Based Authentication setup, that worked perfectly in loading the information into ADFS installed on the same system. I am wondering if anyone has any ideas on this.

  • also, forgot to mention that this only occurs with the FQDN, it seems to not happen with just using the name of the local server (https://crmsrvr:5555/org), but because ADFS has the FQDN I cannot fully authenticate to the server correctly, and I am using a wildcard certificate for the CRM web site, not the ADFS web site, and the wildcard that I am using does have just that servers name in the DNS alternative name space so that authentication to that server using just its name works correctly for other functions that I have on the server.

  • Hi,

    Yes, true the certificate doesn't support the your CRM Server's FQDN. If its a wild card certificate make sure your certificate domain and your internal domain are same.

    If both are same then there will be no issues, if both are different then you will have authentication issues.

    While configuring the IFD from Deployment manager we change the settings and bindings to your internal one.

    When we install the CRM you can access CRM using  FQDN name, but once you configure the IFD then you need to access the CRM with Internal or External URL's.
