Configuring the Azure AD Connect Health Agent for AD FS on Server Core

Fri, 09 Feb 2018 08:40:50 +0000

When you get serious about security in Hybrid Identity implementations, you would opt to implement AD FS servers and Web Application Proxies as Server Core installations. However, this poses a slight problem with the Azure AD Connect Health Agent for AD FS, because at first glance, you can’t configure it on Server Core installations of […]

Thu, 25 Jan 2018 10:43:27 +0000

Last week, I showed you how to perform a simple Hybrid Identity implementation with AD FS on-premises. While this scenario is easy and fast to deploy, it also has a couple of downsides.
