Updated: December 15, 2006

Applies To: Windows Server 2003 R2

This checklist includes tasks for deploying Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) in the account partner organization. It also includes tasks for configuring the components that are required to establish one-half of a federation partnership.

If you are deploying a Web SSO design, you do not have to follow this checklist. However, you do have to complete the tasks in this checklist to successfully deploy a Federated Web SSO design or Federated Web SSO with Forest Trust design.

ImportantImportant
Make sure that the administrator in the resource partner organization follows the guidance in Checklist: Configuring the resource partner organization to ensure that all necessary deployment tasks will be completed to successfully create the second half of the federation partnership.
