  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I'm getting an error i.e. The following error occurred: The argument "security=SSPI"" was not recognized. while running the command "Fsconfig.exe CreateSQLFarm /ServiceAccount <Domain\ServiceAccount> /SQLConnectionString “Database=AdfsConfiguration;server=<SQL Cluster Servername>;integrated security=SSPI” /FederationServiceName <NLB server name>" to create an SQL farm for configuring ADFS 2.0 in High Availability.

    Request someone to please help me with this. I’m trying to find some solution myself and will inform you once I get through success.
