Windows Intune "Sorry, but we’re having trouble signing you in" error "80041317"

Make sure when updating your configuration settings of the federated domain for the on-premises Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) service these settings are updated to the Windows Azure Active Directory (Windows Azure AD) authentication system. Last week I updated my on-premises token-signing certificate without updating federation trust data. This causes the claim that the AD FS service supplies to be malformed and therefore rejected by the Windows Azure AD authentication system.

When a federated user tries to sign in to a Microsoft cloud service such as Office 365, Windows Azure, or Windows Intune from a sign-in webpage whose URL starts with “https://login.microsoftonline.com/login,” authentication for that user fails. Additionally, the user receives the following error message:

Sorry, but we’re having trouble signing you in
Please try again in a few minutes. If this doesn’t work, you might want to contact your admin and report the following error:
80041317 or 80043431

Microsoft provides a consistent Cloud OS but how consistent is the deployment of these in a public or private cloud scenario? The lack of process integration, supply of various portals, too many steps, too many clicks! Service Manager provides an interface that allows Cloud OS. On a standard and automated way After going through change management process VMs in public (Azure) or private cloud (SCVMM) provisioned.

Better together…TechEd & MMS! #SysCtr

MMSTechEd

Today Brad Anderson announced from now on that MMS will be merged with TechEd event. How come?

The objective is simple:  Provide attendees a better opportunity for knowledge gathering and technical growth. By drawing together a larger community to this combined event, every attendee will have a dramatically wider range of experts and luminaries (both from the industry and within Microsoft) to learn from and engage.

TechEd 2014 will be your single best source for the latest news, trends, resources and deep technical education. Also, the System Center team is already preparing to teach the deep 300- and 400-level content you’ve come to expect at MMS. There will also be expanded Early Bird pricing options, dedicated Management Meet & Geek opportunities, dedicated Management Instructor-Led Labs and Hands-on Labs, structured and unstructured networking opportunities tuned to the Management community and broader communities, and other unique MMS experiences.

This is a big transition, and I understand and respect the concerns that accompany this type of strategic move. The content and operational experts behind both events are already working together to ensure that this new event surpasses what you’ve come to expect from TechEd while delivering everything you require from MMS.

Read the complete blog post of Brad Anderson here. The new format of TechEd NA 2014 take place at May 12-15, 2014 in Houston, Texas.
