Placement of ADFS servers for Federation? (which domain)


  • Hi,

    I am looking to deploy ADFS for federation my Sharepoint 2013 environment. For this to work, do I need to deploy ADFS in the same domain as the Sharepoint 2013 servers?

    Please advise.

  • Yes, your ADFS servers should be in the same forest in order for SharePoint to trust them.
