adfs - federation metadata xml path RRS feed

  • Question

  • Good afternoon,

    I cannot seem to resolve the federal metadata path after updating the certs on the ADFS. I made sure I added the network service account to the private key for the certs permissions but still no luck. If anybody has any tips on how I can diagnose what is happening please let me know. I looked at the event logs and nothing seems to be populating any errors

  • Which federation metadata path are you referring to ? There are 3 - the initial one on the ADFS Server, the federation metadata from CRM after setting up claims (based on the CRM web address), or the IFD metadata (normally the auth. address set when configuring IFD). And do you get an error when trying to access it ?

    If you update the certificates, you'll need to update them (in the certificate store) on both the CRM and ADFS Server, and if you've updated the encryption certificate you'll need to rerun the Claims Wizard in CRM to use the updated certificate

  • Hi,

    What David says, plus every time I've done this I need to remove the old certificates if you have the same friendly name for them, they don't seem to be using the id of the certificate.
