Steps to install ADFS v2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Maybe this is the question that has been asked multiple times, but being a newbie with ADFSv2 and also with ADFS, i am confused with so many different documents and guidelines explaining how to setup ADFS v2.

    I need to setup ADFSv2 on Win Server 2008 R2 so that i can expose it over internet and use its metadata with AppFabric ACS.

    What are the proper steps to set up ADFS v2 for this purpose?
