ADFS 3 installed but instructions for ADFS 2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • ADFS 3 is installed with Geo Trust certificate.

    ADFS works properly with https://adfs.ourdomain.ca/adfs/ls/idpinitiatedsignon

    The instructions for adding a partner are written for ADFS 2.  I have managed to do 2 of the 3 steps

    1) export ADFS metadata   by                 https://adfs.ourdomain.ca/federationmetadata/2007-06/federationmetadata.xml

    2) token signing certificate supplied by    ADFS console-> certificates-> token-signing -> copy to file

    3) export IIS certifcate from ADFS server       I am stuck on this as I have no IIS as it was not needed for ADFS 3.  What should be exported?

  • The instructions are somewhat misleading.

    All you have to do is supply the ADFS metadata to the partner, ask them for their metadata and import it.

    The IIS certificate is probably the SSL certificate which is not required for partner federation.
