  • Hi Michael,

    It's not on the disk. It's generated on the fly based on various configuration settings within AD FS -  Identifier, Claims Descriptions, Certificates, Service Endpoints available etc. Changes you make to you configuration via the UI or Powershell will influence the content of the metadata xml.

    Regards,

    If you want to get it just use IE and browse to "https://<adfs server name>/federationmetadata/2007-06/federationmetadata.xml". Save it as an xml and open it up qwith Notepadd++

    Method 2

    Powershell it

    I do this and get an error: "This page can’t be displayed. Turn on TLS 1.0, TLS 1.1, and TLS 1.2 in Advanced settings and try connecting to again. If this error persists, contact your site administrator."

    TLS is turned on.

  • Hi Michael, 

    The the file is not in the ADFS Server, but it can be downloaded by writing down the full ADFS Metadata link on your browser and it will get downloaded automatically. You can get the full link form your ADFS Servers by going into Endpoints then all the way down to Metadata. 

    Thanks,
