Verify that the federation server proxy is operational

Updated: June 16, 2014

Applies To: Azure, Office 365, Windows Intune

You can use the following procedures to verify that the federation server proxy can communicate with the Federation Service in AD FS. You run this procedure after you run the AD FS Federation Server Proxy Configuration Wizard to configure the computer to run in the federation server proxy role. For more information about how to run this wizard, see Configure a computer for the federation server proxy role.

noteNote
The result of this test is the successful generation of a specific event in Event Viewer on the federation server proxy computer.

  1. Log on to the federation server proxy as an Administrator.

  2. Click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Event Viewer.

  3. In the details pane, double-click Applications and Services Logs, double-click AD FS 2.0 Eventing, and then click Admin.

  4. In the Event ID column, look for event ID 198.

    If the federation server proxy is configured properly, you will see a new event in the Application log of Event Viewer, with the event ID 198. This event verifies that the federation server proxy service was started successfully and now is online.
