I was under the impression that issues can arise when you use a CNAME record to point to your ADFS servers (by way of a Load Balancer).  It seems that there are no static IP addresses available for ELBs due to the "elastic" nature of the product.

Prior to this case, I would simply add an A Record that points to the (static) VIP of the Load Balancer.  That does not seem to be available in AWS.

How do you handle this?

Thank you.
