Hi,
I am following this guide to re-create our Exchange Server Federation after the certificate expired.

I've run into a wall at Step 6 with the command `Set-FederationTrust -RefreshMetadata -Identity "Azure AD authentication"`

I get the error:

The operation couldn't be performed because object 'Azure AD Authentication' couldn't be found on '<Domain Controller>'.
+ CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (:) [Set-FederationTrust], ManagementObjectNotFoundException
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : [Server=<Exchange Server>,RequestId=9bbb467c-ff3b-424e-9a2e-b205dfb4745e,TimeStamp=15/02/2022 14:23:24] [FailureCategory=Cmdlet-ManagementObjectNotFoundEx
ception] 5240AF9A,Microsoft.Exchange.Management.SystemConfigurationTasks.SetFederationTrust
+ PSComputerName : <Exchange Server>


I'm unsure if `Azure AD Authentication` is a placeholder for a user or something or what, can't find much info on what the Identity parameter is meant to be.

We're running a Hybrid environment, any help appreciated.

Kind regards,
Hugo.
