ADFS Setup

Hi I'm looking for good resources that would help me with set up ADFS (win server 2012R2) as STS. I need to integrate ADFS with ACS for my Azure application.

I was able to setup relying party trust (RLP) importing ACS metadata URL.  Attached are its properties.  

Now, how do I configure IIS to host the login page and allow SSL requests ? How do I get public ADFS metadata URL (I understand it should end with /FederationMetadata/2007-06/FederationMetadata.xml) ?

ADFS server is a Azure VM which is connected to our corp domain.

Please help!

Pages are configured automatically as part of the AD FS role install. On server 2012R2, they run in kernel mode, and configuration is done via PowerShell or netsh. The federation metadata is available by default on the endpoint you noted above. So for the local server, this will be something like:

Similarly, for the remote server it will be available on the same endpoint. For example, this is the endpoint for O365:

The only thing you will need to make sure is that the said endpoint is enabled (open the AD FS console -> Service -> Endpoints -> look at the bottom) and that your firewalls are not blocking it externally.

So I understand that no explicit IIS configuration is required?

The end point does not work. Attached is the service endpoint info.

My ADFS VM has address where as the name is xxx.companyname.local. I assume the latter is prefix for metadata url.

Could you help?

It's the AD FS FQDN. Preferably, this needs to be accessible externally, so use or similar for the DNS record. CNAME records will give you trouble with SSO experience however, but you dont really have much choice when it comes to Azure VMs.
