Multiple Domain Forests, Multiple ADFS Servers, and SharePoint – Part 1

As part of the work I often get involved with, it tends
to involve Federated Authentication either with On-Premises or Cloud Services.
In the past, I have used Active Directory Federated Services (ADFS) as the middleman
between all kinds of applications and configurations. Most recently, I have
been working with multiple third-party federated platforms, that pass-through
ADFS onto some applications such as SharePoint of Office 365. A common question I often get asked either through
twitter, blog comments, or even email is about multiple Active Directory Forest,
Multiple Active Directory Federated Services configuration, and other
applications. As such, I thought a blog post was to explain this and
walk-through a sample setup.
