Backup ADFS Server Testing

I am looking to setup active-failover through my Managed DNS provider for my redundant ADFS setup. How do I test the connection to my backup ADFS server from an outside connection provided the backup ADFS server is not currently nat'd to a Public IP? (example: possibly hosts file minapulation?) Once I can confirm I can externally access my mail through my backup ADFS server I then plan on testing the active-failover by simply blocking my primary ADFS server through my firewall so that the active-failover from my managed DNS will engage.

Hi Alex,


You can change your host file point to the IP that you want to test, and use the below procedure to verify that your ADFS is Ok.
