    I could not find any Microsoft info on your exact error message (I'm sure you have searched, too)
    I did find, however, this site with great info:

    Here's an excerpt that probably applies to your problem:

    Enabling SSO

    To enable SSO, you need to start the Microsoft Single Sign-On Service in the Services-tool of Windows. You can also do this on the command-line with "net start ssosrv". Keep in mind the service needs to run under an account that has access to the SQL hosting your SSO database. For demonstrational purposes you can use administrator, otherwise create a dedicated account.

    Next, go to MOSS Central Admin at http://localhost:port, where port is whatever you specified when installing MOSS. Select Operations-tab, and navigate to Manage settings for single sign-on. If you get this error:

    Failed to connect to Microsoft Single Sign-on Service. To configure, please ensure the service is running.

    It means your SSO service is not running. Go and doublecheck the settings on that. Then, select Manage server settings, and fill out the fields. Default values are normally ok for those fields that have been prepopulated. Click OK - the database and settings for your SSO service should now be created.
