Removing a Federation Server

Updated: September 13, 2007

Applies To: Windows Server 2003 R2

When you no longer need a server that is running the Federation Service component of Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS), perform the following procedures:

  • Remove the Federation Service ADFS component, as described in Remove an ADFS component.

  • If you have a federation server farm and the trust policy is shared on the network, disconnect the mapped network drive for the connection to the shared trust policy folder.

  • Delete the token-signing certificate from the certificate store. For information about how to delete a certificate from a certificate store, see Delete a certificate (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=62715.

  • If this is the only instance of the Federation Service, do the following:

    • Notify the partner that this issuer is no longer valid and tell them to remove the partner node for this Federation Service, as described in Removing ADFS Partners.

    • Decommission the Web server and change the authentication for any Web applications.
