infinite loop on log in with ADFS

    Question

  • We have a new share point 2013 web app that we are trying to configure with ADFS using the detailed guide on tech net 

    We have got every thing set up but when we log in we get the ADFS authentication dialogue which works and then redirects us to the /_trust/ url in sharepoint which sends us back to the authenticate.aspx page which sends us round the loop again.

    Does any one have any idea what we missed during the set up that makes this loop happen?

  • Eventually worked out what was going on. Turns out we had not set the AD users up with email addresses. Thus having set sharepoint up to use the email address as one of the tokens it didn't accept the users. Adding email addresses and every thing started working.

  • Can you provide more detail on setting up the users with email addresses?

    I am currently experiencing the same looping problem.
