Install the ADFS Web Agent component of ADFS

Updated: September 13, 2007

Applies To: Windows Server 2003 R2

You can add an Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) Web Agent to a Web server in a resource partner organization. You use the same procedure to add either the ADFS Web Agent for Windows NT token–based applications or the ADFS Web Agent for claims-aware applications. This action makes that server an ADFS-enabled Web server.

Administrative credentials

To complete this procedure, you must be a member of the Administrators group on the local computer.

To add an ADFS Web Agent to a Web server

  1. Click Start, point to Control Panel, and then click Add or Remove Programs.

  2. In Add or Remove Programs, click Add/Remove Windows Components.

  3. In the Windows Components Wizard, select the Active Directory Services check box, and then click Details.

  4. In the Active Directory Services dialog box, select the Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) check box, and then click Details.

  5. In the Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) dialog box, click ADFS Web Agents, and then click Details.

  6. In the ADFS Web Agents dialog box, select Web Agent subcomponents as follows, and then click OK:

    • To add ADFS Web Agent support for applications that can process ADFS claims directly for authorization, select the Claims-aware applications check box.

      noteNote
      If your Web server will host only claims-aware applications, do not select the Windows NT token–based applications check box.

    • To add ADFS Web Agent support for applications that require Windows native authorization mechanisms (that is, for applications that do not directly consume ADFS claims), select the Windows NT token–based applications check box.

      noteNote
      If your Web server will host only Windows NT token–based applications, do not select the Claims-aware applications check box.

  7. In the Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) dialog box, click OK.

  8. In the Active Directory Services dialog box, click OK.

  9. In the Windows Components Wizard, click Next.

  10. If you are prompted for the location of installation files, navigate to R2 installation files\cmpnents\r2, and then click OK.

  11. On the Completing the Windows Components Wizard page, click Finish.
