I recently installed AD FS on my domain controllers to implement SSO with Office 365.   After setup and installation, the DC's stopped replicating and DNS was not resolving.  Users were unable to authenticate to Exchange and other network servers.  I uninstalled AD FS from Programs and Features, and I restored IIS following the instructions found at:

How to restore IIS and clean up Active Directory

I'm still having issues with AD not replicating.  I'm stuck, and my users keep getting login dialog boxes and disconnecting from Exchange while in Outlook.  Anyone have any ideas?

First of all, ADFS is not recommended on a domain controller.

Because ADFS requires the installation of Internet Information Services (IIS), we strongly recommend that you not install any ADFS components on a domain controller in a production environment.

Second, could you elaborate more on the errors you are seeing on domain controllers?  event log entries?  errors from dcdiag?  errors on the exchange server?

Microsoft helped me get the remnants off the Domain Controllers.  I completely missed the note in the steps.  Thanks for sending me the KB article.
