3.5. Installation troubleshooting

3.5.1. Atomia Provisioning separately installed:

If Atomia Provisioning Service is installed separately, then some manual changes must be made to the web.configuration files of Atomia Provisioning and Atomia Identity. Also, some of the certificates must be added from one machine to another. Certificates:
  • From the machine where Atomia Provisioning is installed, take AtomiaProvisioningCer.cer from the installation folder and on the Atomia Identity machine import this certificate (under the Local computer) into the following stores: Personal, Trusted root certificate authorities and Trusted people. Changes to the Atomia Provisioning Web.config file:
  • Change the connection string for the Atomia Indentity databases (AtomiaUserManagement and AtomiaIdentity):

<add name="IdentityProviderConnectionString" connectionString="Data Source=localhost\SQLEXPRESS;Initial Catalog=AtomiaIdentity;Integrated Security=SSPI;" providerName="" />
<add name="UserManagementConectionString" connectionString="Data Source=localhost\SQLEXPRESS;Initial Catalog=AtomiaUserManagement;Integrated Security=True;" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" />
  • Change certificate thumbprint for the Atomia Indentity certificate.

<issuerNameRegistry type="Microsoft.IdentityModel.Tokens.ConfigurationBasedIssuerNameRegistry, Microsoft.IdentityModel, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35">
<add name="CN=Atomia Identity" thumbprint="0B1801359CD5F0787E38AF9820544E76B6F9772A" />
... Changes to the Atomia Test Client app.config file
  • All addresses which point to the location of the AtomiaIdentitySts service, ie "http://localhost/AtomiaIdentityStS/..." should be changed to point to the real location of the Atomia Indeity Sts service.

  • All addresses which point to the Atomia Provisioning service should point to the localhost Atomia provisioning service "http://localhost/AtomiaProvisioning/..."
