  • Hi Arctic,
     
    Thanks for your post and sharing the links that you've found.
     
    >>Is Windows System State Backup sufficient?
     
    As far as I know, a System State backup that includes all volumes of the ADFS server will be sufficient for ADFS disaster recovery.

    For Antivirus exclusions for ADFS with WID involved, you should combine the exclusion recommendations for SQL and IIS on:

    Hope this helps. By the way, we mainly focus on ADDS related questions in current forum, there is not so much about ADFS aspect here. If you need any further assistance on this, I'd suggest you post in the dedicated forum below, where you should get more professional responses:

    The reason why we recommend posting appropriately is you will get the most qualified pool of respondents, and other partners who read the forums regularly can either share their knowledge or learn from your interaction with us. Thank you for your understanding.

  • Thanks for reply.

    I found following things from "Antivirus exclusions for ADFS with WID"

    ADFS 3.0 does not use IIS anymore so database exclusions should be okay

    https://support.microsoft.com/fi-fi/kb/309422

    These files usually have one of the following file-name extensions

    • .mdf
    • .ldf
    • .ndf

    From article I found location of Database (C:\Windows\WID)
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Internal_Database
