The Set-MsolADFSContext cmdlet sets the credentials to connect to Office 365 and to the Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) server. This cmdlet must be run before making other single sign-on (also known as identity federation) cmdlet calls. If this cmdlet is called without parameters, the user will be prompted for credentials to connect to the different systems. When the AD FS server is used remotely, the user must specify the computer name of the primary AD FS server. Note that the specified logfile is shared by all single sign-on cmdlets for the session. A default logfile is created if one is not specified.
