Deploying AD FS 2.0 in the Resource Partner Organization
Updated: May 5, 2010
Applies To: Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) 2.0
The resource partner organization in Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) 2.0 represents the organization whose Web servers may be protected by a resource-side federation server. The federation server at the resource partner uses the security tokens that are produced by the account partner to provide claims to the Web servers that are located in the resource partner.
In scenarios in which you need to provide access to federated services or applications to many different users—when some users reside in different organizations—you can configure the resource federation server so that you can deploy multiple account partners.
