AD FS software must be installed on any computer that you are preparing for the federation server proxy role. You can install this software by either using the AD FS Setup Wizard or by using a command-line parameter. For more information about this parameter, see AD FS 2.0 Deployment Guide.

Make sure to complete the installation process by installing all of the required hotfixes on each federation server proxy computer, as indicated by the last step in this procedure.

AD FS has a separate installation package (referred to as AD FS 2.0) for the Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2 operating system platforms. AD FS can also be installed by adding the Federation Service server role as part of the Windows Server 2012 operating system.
