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

https://fs.domaion.com/adfs/ls/IdpInitiatedSignon.aspx

We had something like

https://feds.tesc.edu.com/adfs/ls/idpInitiatedSignon.aspxII  (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 atthedatacenter.com
