Monitor Knowledgebase

Summary

The AD FS Windows service failed to start because the certificate that is identified in the AD FS configuration database is not unique.

If the AD FS Windows service is started successfully, the monitor will change to a Green state and the original critical alert will be resolved automatically.

Causes

This condition can occur when the certificate is found in the specified store, but there is more than one certificate that matches the findValue.

Resolutions

If the certificate was identified by name, and there are multiple certificates of the same name, configure the certificate by using the certificate thumbprint. Locate the element that is specified in this event, and modify its findValue to use the thumbprint of the certificate instead.
