Active Directory Federation Services Install
Posted on 2014-07-14
I am currently charged with deploying active directory federation services to our Server 2008 R2 domain.
When I read over the documentation I feel I am left with more questions then answers. Does anyone have a much more simplified step by step type documentation that explains better how to deploy it. I am not deploying any trust yet as that comes after FS is stood up.
I have added a couple virtual machines for the FS role (for a RMS cluster) and two DMZ proxy servers as well however the role itself being installed is clearly not enough to make it work. My focus on this question is just standing it up and that alone. I am looking for something easy to understand, something so easy a caveman can do it? :)
Any help is greatly appreciated. On the horizon it looks like Office 365 is going to be one thing using federation services, I know we have a current need to use AD FS SAML for something called Jive.
