The error, as stated above

  • Activity ID: 00000000-0000-0000-0d00-0080000000fb
  • Error Time:
  • Cookie: enabled
  • User agent string: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64)
  • AppleWebLit/537.36 (KHTML, like Geckp)
  • Chrome/32.o.1700.76 Safari/537.36

I would have expected a bad URL to return a page not found or similar, but it brought up a Nice AD FS page with this error on it. Go Figure!


Hope it helps.
