If you are using Windows Internal Database (WID) as the AD FS 2.1 configuration database, you must run the Fix it package first on the secondary federation servers in the farm, and then on the primary federation server.

If you are using a SQL server as the AD FS 2.1 configuration database, run the Fix it package from any node on the farm.
