An interesting ADFS Error

While installing Windows 2012 R2 Active Directory Federation Services, I had an interesting issue testing a Windows 2012 R2 AD FS installation.




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


The error, which happened during initial testing. It turned out to be a slight mis spelling of

We had something like  (note the “i” instead of the “L”)

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.


Return a remote desktop session back to the console

If you would like to re-open a session on the console from a remote desktop session, run this command

%windir%System32tscon.exe 0 /dest:console


it will move the remote desktop (or terminal server) session back to the console.


Hope it helps                                                     Home to
