Message: The AD FS Web Agent for claims-aware applications encountered an error while loading its configuration from the Web.config file. The value of a configuration parameter %1 is less than the allowed minimum of %2.
Parameter: %1

Resolve

Fix the value of the parameter that is specified in the event

Edit the web.config file to fix the value of the parameter that is specified in the event. The minimum allowable length for the value is also specified in the event.

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

To modify the web.config file:

  1. On the AD FS-enabled Web server that is hosting the claims-aware agent, locate the web.config file for your claims-aware application, and then open it with Notepad. This file should be located in \inetpub\wwwroot\virtualdirectory, where your claims-aware application files are stored.
  2. Edit the value that is indicated in the event based on the parameter settings that are provided in the event.
  3. Click File, click Save, and then close Notepad.

Verify

Verify that the web.config file is configured with correct URL values and that all configuration parameters contain valid values.

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

To verify that the web.config file is configured with the correct Return URL value:

  1. On a resource federation server, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Active Directory Federation Services.
  2. Double-click Federation Service, double-click Trust Policy, double-click My Organization, click Applications, right-click the application in the list that represents this claims-aware application, and then click Properties.
  3. Verify that the https value that is specified in Application URL—for example, https://www.treyresearch.net/ApplicationName/— is identical to the value that is specified between the returnurl tags in the web.config file on the AD FS-enabled Web server.
