In a recent article on his blog, Premier Developer Consultant Razi Rais outlines the steps required to set up a developer environment instance of Active Directory Federation Services on the current Technical Preview (TP4) of Windows Server 2016. Here’s a snippet of Razi’s article, be sure to follow the link to his blog for the full solution, including code samples:
Recently I’ve run into situations where I have to build a developer environment that needs Active Directory Federation Services [ADFS] running on Windows Server 2016 [currently in technical preview 4, hence w2k16-tp4,]. I am intentionally avoiding the term ADFS ‘v4’ which is really tempting but it’s about time to move away from these versions. From now on you can simply refer to it as ADFS running on w2k16. So, what I really needed is something that can be up and running in the fastest way possible. It’s really a pure developer setup focusing on saving time on installation and configuration so no server hardening, least privilege accounts or all those things that are absolutely mandatory for non-developer environments like production!
