  • The ADF (Application Definition Files) and ICF (Instance Configuration Files) are well-formed and validated XML documents that serve as the source code for the SSNS instance. To create them you can use your XML editor of choice - xmlspy, notepad, Visual Studio, emacs, what-have-you.

    There is not a seperate, automated mechanism for creating them withing Management Studio.
