I need some help!  I'm a complete novice with ADFS and was the Tech Resource in a project to set up a 3rd party with SSO for our users.  The 3rd party basically talked me through getting the new 3rd PArty Trust set up so our users could log in and use their online Expense system.
I've now been asked to set up a custom error page so when a user has issues using their credentials to log in, they're redirected to a page (which is externally accessible on our Intranet.

How do I do this?

I'm running ADFS 2.0 on Windows Server 2008 R2

just want to make this clear
when you want the ADFS to redirect?

from, user point of view.
It login to the expense online tool.
it type in the email address, it will then auto-redirect the page to your ADFS server
you type in your email address/password and hit submit
then it will redirect the page back to expense online tool  and login.

So which part you need the error message to return?

I need the error page to show after the user has entered their credentials and is redirected to the online expense tool if it  fails to log them in with the credentials they've supplied.

Okay. Thats not ADFS job. Thats the online expense tool.

ADFS only do authentication, and forward the required settings to Online expense tool
If the online expense tool can't work on it, it will then redirect to the page.
