Event Details

Product: Windows Operating System
ID: 659
Source: Microsoft-Windows-ADFS
Version: 6.0
Symbolic Name: SidFilteringCacheUpdatePeriodTooLow
Message: The Federation Service encountered an error while loading the trust policy. The trust policy specifies a Windows trust cache update period that is less than its allowed minimum.
Configured value: %1
Minimum value: %2

If this error occurs during startup of the Federation Service, the Federation Service will not be able to start and all requests to the Federation Service will fail until the configuration is corrected. If this error occurs while the Federation Service is running, the Federation Service will continue to use the last policy that was loaded successfully.

User Action
This error should occur only if the trust policy file has been modified without use of the AD FS administrative tools. Increase the Windows trust cache update period above the minimum.

Resolve

Increase the update period for the Windows trust cache

This error occurs only if the trust policy file has been modified without the use of the Active Directory Federation Services snap-in.

Increase the update period for the Windows trust cache to more than the minimum (five minutes).

For more information about increasing the update period, see Troubleshooting Active Directory Federation Services (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=80353).
