Would you like to manage AD FS on Windows Server 2016, too? No problem!

Yesterday, I blogged on the entirely new Management Pack for Active Directory Domain Services on Windows Server 2016. What I didn’t notice, until now, is that a management pack for Active Directory Federation Services is also available,

 

About the AD FS MP

The Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) Management Pack provides both proactive and reactive monitoring of your AD FS deployment for both the federation server and the federation server proxy roles.

The management pack monitors events that the AD FS Windows service records in the AD FS event logs, and it monitors the performance data that the AD FS performance counters collect. It also monitors the overall health of the AD FS system and the federation passive application, and it provides alerts for critical issues and warning issues.

This management pack includes monitoring of the following core components:

  • token issuance
  • token acceptance
  • artifact service
  • Web sites
  • trust management
  • certificate rollover
  • Windows Internal Database synchronization.

 

Windows Server 2016 only

Where the completely rewritten System Center Management Pack for Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) offers support for Active Directory Domain Controllers running Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows Server 2016, this version of the System Center Management Pack for Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) supports AD FS Servers (acting as STSs) and Web Application Proxies running Windows Server 2016 only. \

 

Version

This is version 10.0.1.0 of the Active Directory Federation Services Management Pack.
It can be deployed to Windows Server 2016-based systems,

This Management Pack requires System Center 2012 or newer and does not replace your 7.0.x Active Directory Federation Services Management Pack deployment.

 

Download

You can download version 10.0.1.0 of the Active Directory Federation Services Management Pack here. It is available in 18 languages and weighs between 484KB and 576KB per language.

 

Recommendation

Don’t let monitoring your Windows Server 2016-based Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) servers and Web App Proxies slow down your migration to Microsofts latest and greatest
