Am I using Office 365 after the service upgrade?
After you run the Microsoft Online Services Diagnostics and Logging (MOSDAL) Support Toolkit, the Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS), the following error message is logged in the ADFSDiagnostic.txt diagnostics log file:
Note The log file is located in the \Admin_Applications\SSO_Diagnostic_Tests\ folder.
The AD FS Metadata Exchange (MEX) document did not contain the SecurityTokenService section.
Additionally, when you try to sign in to Office 365 resources by using single sign-on (SSO)-enabled user ID credentials, rich client application authentication fails when it tries to access services.
An issue occurred with the AD FS 2.0 service that prevented it from functioning as expected.
To resolve this issue, restart the AD FS 2.0 service. If that doesn't resolve the issue, contact Office 365 Support.
