Examples

-------------------------- EXAMPLE 1 --------------------------

C:\PS>$fscredential = Get-Credential
C:\PS>Add-AdfsFarmNode -ServiceAccountCredential $fscredential -SQLConnectionString "Data Source=SQLHost;Integrated Security=True"

Description


Adds the local server computer as a node in an existing federation server farm that uses a Microsoft SQL Server database installed on a computer called "SQLHost".

-------------------------- EXAMPLE 2 --------------------------

C:\PS>$fscredential = Get-Credential
C:\PS>Add-AdfsFarmNode -OverwriteConfiguration -PrimaryComputerName "PrimaryWIDHost" -PrimaryComputerPort 80 -ServiceAccountCredential $fscredential -CertificateThumbprint 8169c52b4ec6e77eb2ae17f028fe5da4e35c0bed

Description


Overwrites an existing AD FS configuration database and adds the local server computer as a node in an existing federation server farm that uses Windows Internal Database (WID) and whose primary node is installed on a computer called "PrimaryWIDHost".

Note that the PrimaryComputerPort is needed even if the default HTTP port of 80 is used and that the CertificateThumbprint parameter is only required if it is not already configured as a binding in IIS. Also when specifying a value for the CertificateThumbprint parameter, the value you use must specify the thumbprint of a certificate that is currently installed in the local machine My store, and the certificate must be the same certificate that is used as the SSL certificate on the primary node.

Required Parameters

-PrimaryComputerName

Specifies the name of the primary federation server in the farm that this computer will join.
