Complete Newbie to AD FS RRS feed

  • Question

  • Guys,

         I apologize profusely in advance, but I am a total newbie with AD FS.  I understand at a high level what it is, what it does.  We are going to be using smart card authentication with outside visitors to a SharePoint application, so we will be moving in that direction.  I just don't know where to get started.  We are looking to set up a single, stand-alone AD FS server to interface with a UAT SharePoint farm.  We'll be using SQL Server since I understand that it will want a configuration database.

    Question - is a proxy server absolutely necessary?

    Question - is AD FS configured first and then SQL Server installed, or doesn't it matter?

    Question - are there any tutorials that not only walk you step by step through doing things, but lay out what you will need to do and why?

    I have no experience with this and I just need to get started.

    Thanks again

    James D. Angielczyk
