Monitor Knowledgebase

Summary

The AD FS Windows Service failed to start because the certificate that is identified in the AD FS configuration database could not be found.

If the AD FS Windows Service is successfully started, the monitor will transition to a Green state and the original critical alert will be auto resolved.

Causes

This condition occurs when the findValue that is specified does not match any certificate in the specified store. Common causes for this condition include the following:

  • The certificate that has the specified findValue is from a store that is different from the configured store.

  • The certificate was deleted from the store after configuration

Resolutions

Possible resolutions for this condition include the following:

  • If the certificate is located in a different store, find the location by using the Certificates snap-in, and correct the configuration appropriately.

  • If the certificate was deleted, restore the certificate temporarily, and then reconfigure AD FS to bind to and use a different certificate before you delete the original certificate.
