Issue

Web Application Proxy was not able to check for configuration updates from AD FS storage.

Impact

Web Application Proxy was temporarily unable to retrieve its configuration from AD FS storage and used the latest copy of the configuration; any updates to the configuration were not applied on this server. When the service starts, there is no copy of the configuration and any previously published applications are temporarily unavailable to users.

Resolution

Check connectivity between Web Application Proxy and the AD FS servers.

Additional resolution content is required; provide (1) an introductory paragraph and (2) step-by-step procedures for each task in the best practice configuration. Each resolution should be complete and self-contained. The user should be able to implement the BP without having to go to another page, unless the implementation steps are long and complicated (e.g., Exchange disaster recovery steps). If you do have to take the customer to another topic, this topic should contain a high-level overview of those particular resolution steps.
