Consider the following scenario:
- You have Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) security token service (STS) servers that are running Windows Server 2012 R2 together with AD FS proxy servers that are configured.
- The AD FS STS servers and AD FS proxy servers are in a network load balancing (NLB) cluster.
This issue occurs because the Device Registration Service (DRS) is not deployed, or the DRS device object container (for example, CN=RegisteredDevices, DC=default-naming-context) does not have correct permission to the AD FS service account.
