Message: The Federation Service has detected a discrepancy between its signing and verification methods.

Signing certificate thumbprint: %1

User Action
If a signing method is to be identified by the SKI, the verification method must contain the signing certificate. Add the signing certificate to the verification certificate list.

Resolve

Add the signing certificate to the verification certificate list

If a signing method is to be identified by the Subject Key Identifier (SKI), which is set to thumbprint by default, the verification method must contain the token-signing certificate of the proper SKI for that account partner. Add the token-signing certificate to the verification certificate list.

To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the local Administrators group, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority.

To add a token-signing certificate to the verification list of an account partner:

  1. Click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Active Directory Federation Services.
  2. Double-click Federation Service, double-click Trust Policy, double-click Partner Organizations, double-click Account Partners, right-click the account partner, and then click Properties.
  3. Click the Verification Certificates tab, and then click Add.
  4. In the Browse for Verification Certificate file dialog box, locate the certificate file that you want to add.
  5. Select the certificate file, and then click Open.
  6. In the Trust Policy Properties dialog box, click OK.

Verify

Verify that you can access the Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS)-enabled application from a client browser and that the resource can be accessed.
