CRM 2011: Error 404 while using internal claims authentication

DNS were working correctly, the TMG server was configured correctly, the SSL certificate was correctly bound to the internal & external (we are using a wildcard SSL certificate) and ADFS was set up per the Microsoft installation document.

Now, to resolve the internal access issue, I had to remove the “:443” from the Deployment Manager Web addresses:


And now everything is working properly Sourire
