Planning Federation Server Proxy Placement

Updated: December 15, 2006

Applies To: Windows Server 2003 R2

After you gather all of the information that you will use to design your Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) infrastructure and after you plan your federation server and Web server strategy, you can plan when and where to place federation server proxies in your new design. The information in the following topics can help you determine when and where to place a federation server proxy and whether to use either the account partner role or the resource partner role.

Although this information might help with your placement planning for federation server proxies, it does not explain how to determine the proper number of proxies and the proxy hardware requirements for each ADFS design. For more information about determining the proper number of federation server proxies for each design, see Planning for federation server proxy capacity.

For examples of how a federation server proxy can be placed in any of the three primary ADFS design scenarios, see Mapping Your Deployment Goals to an ADFS Design.
