I'm in the process of redeploying CRM2013 on-premise for internet Access, however during my planning phase I've seen lots of contradictory information regarding 2012-R2 and ADFS 3.0. Given that the latest installation PDF's (version 6.1.0) talk about ADFS 3.0 can I confirm:
1. Is CRM2013 on 2012-R2 with ADFS 3.0 fully supported?
2. Previously we've always put ADFS on a separate box to CRM to avoid default WebSite issues caused by ADFS 2.0 and IIS. If ADFS 3.0 is supported I've read it doesn't use IIS anymore, so has this limitation now gone, or is it still best practice to separate ADFS and CRM by running them on their own servers?
If anybody can clear up the confusion it would be most appreciated.
Take a look at this post it provides detailed information about windows server 2012 R2 and ADFS 3.0 for CRM 2013
1. Is CRM2013 on 2012-R2 with ADFS 3.0 fully supported? - Yes, its supported. You can refer to compatibility list for info - support.microsoft.com/.../2669061
2. Previously we've always put ADFS on a separate box to CRM to avoid default WebSite issues caused by ADFS 2.0 and IIS. If ADFS 3.0 is supported I've read it doesn't use IIS anymore, so has this limitation now gone, or is it still best practice to separate ADFS and CRM by running them on their own servers? - Since AD FS in Windows Server 2012 R2 is no longer dependent on IIS, you can have CRM and AD FS on same server however, as a best practice, it is always recommended to have CRM and AD FS on different server to avoid performance issues.
Many thanks for the confirmation.
