Update on Active Directory Federation Services courses for upcoming ADFS v2? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Would anybody know if there are updates to be expected on Active Directory Federation Services courses to compensate for the upcoming ADFS v2?

    With ADFS v2 we now wil work with SAML 2.0 Profiles (instead of only v1.1) which greatly enhances the use of ADFS but I would suspect the courses would need to be revised too.

    Course 50065A: Installing and Configuring an Active Directory Federation Services Solution
    Course 4358A: Deploying and Managing Active Directory Federation Services in Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2

    Thank you.

  • Hi Sachin,

    Thanks for your reply.

    I am aware of the software releases and the documentation available at MSDN and Technet. But would like to follow a good old 5-day instructor led classroom training :)

    Current training courses are for server 2003 and server 2008 ADFS v1.0 installs. But with ADFS v2.0 there is more to it.

    Thanks,
