Does ADFS Server always need to communicate with PDC


  • Hello,

    so i did fail configure ADFS because error "server not operational" , and from here i found answer that the ADFS server should get to communicate (telnet 389) to PDC. Okay then we have to make another route to the PDC when we shouldn't base on company policy.

    The question is i want to know if communicate with PDC only mandatory when Configure ADFS and after it configured i can just connect to other DC (not the PDC) ? or the ADFS Server has to constantly communicate with the PDC ?
