Question about ADFS migration (move to new server) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi guys,

    We are planning to migrate the ADFS 3.0 server by using below approach

    -Add new ADFS 3.0 node (adding into the existing farm with the use of WID)

    There are few questions need to be clarified as below:-

    1. We will export the STS certificate (.PFX) from the existing ADFS server and import into new ADFS node.

        Do we need to export/import token-signing & token-decrypting certificate into the new ADFS as well?

    2. If not needed for No.1, will I be able to see token-signing & token-decrypting certificate in ADFS management console from new ADFS node after setting the new ADFS node as primary & existing ADFS node as secondary?

    3. I couldn't find the location of token-signing & token-decrypting certificate from MMC-->Certificates. Please can you let me know the exact location of those self-signed certificates (except from ADFS management console)?

    Appreciated is very much.
