STS is redirecting to default page instead of posting a hidden form RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have developed an application that works fine on my dev station. I published web application and the STS to a web server, and used FederationMetadataGenerator (http://www.leastprivilege.com/ThinktectureWSFederationMetadataGenerator.aspx) to update STS Fedaration metadata, and FedUtil to update the web application configuration.

    However, the STS is not redirecting back to web application after successful authentication, and displays Default.aspx page instead.

    When I analyzed HTTP traffic, i noticed that the STS is not emitting a hidden form that posts back to the web application.

    I checked web configs and they are almost identical, except information related to certificates and host name. I also compared http handler and module configuration on the dev box and the server, and the lists are identical. I also ran a Setup utility to make sure all prerequisites are satisfied.I was unable to find anything relevant in the log files and in the event log.

    What could be the problem? What would be the steps of identifying the issue?

    Do you mean that you have only gotten the application to work? Where did you get your STS?

    2. <<I checked web configs and they are almost identical, except information>>

    What are the two configs?
