CRM 2011 IFD : Add new organization and required changes

Just thought of sharing when i did those. You may have a need to add a new organization to an existing CRM 2011 IFD deployment. From a plain sight, adding an organization is super simple from deployment manager but remember you now have IFD configured. Once you created the organization you may try to browse that – It will give a 404 page not found error.

That is just because,  there are just couple of inclusions/changes need to be done due to the fact that our deployment is now IFD.

Create a new A host record in your DNS for the corresponding newly created organization name.


Update Relying Party Metadata federation metadata


This picks up the new entries from the DNS and does the required changes appropriately.

Clear your browser history and cookies

(No reference image required). – This is not required typically but your IE may still get information from the cache when the page is requested again. Clearing the browsing history and cookies makes it all simple.
