Monitoring Trust Cycle warning - Event ID 168. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Everytime the Trust monitoring cycle is initiated, we're getting the following warning (EventID 168):

    The Federation Service encountered an error while retrieving the federation metadata document from 'https://nexus.microsoftonline-p.com/federationmetadata/2007-06/federationmetadata.xml'. The monitoring for the following trusts failed: 

    Claims providers: 
    Relying parties: 
    Microsoft Office 365 Identity Platform

    Additional Data 

    Exception details: 
    The remote name could not be resolved: 'http' 

    Additional details: 
    User Action 
    Make sure federation metadata URL is accessible. 
    Verify your proxy server setting. For more information about how to verify your proxy server setting, see the AD FS Troubleshooting Guide (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=182180).

    I thought the service account could have problems getting the proxy server information and going through it but the network trace doesn't show any traffic when the trust monitoring cycle is being executed.

    I also looked at the following Microsoft articles (the certification part) without success.



    Any idea what to look for now?

    Best regards,
