If this is your first time installing items from PowerShell Gallery, you may see this:
 

...

PowerShell Hint: Use this to see ADFS Toolkit’s Module base directory 
 
(Get-Module –Name ADFS ToolkitADFSToolkit).ModuleBase


In addition, a new directory will be created on disk here: C:\ADFS Toolkit\.  This directory contains the Task Scheduler job sync-ADFSTkAggregates.ps1.  This permits one or more aggregates to be loaded (or re-loaded) with a single command. 
Subsequent runs of “New-ADFSTkConfiguration” command in PowerShell will append a command to load that aggregate in the sync-ADFSTkAggregates.ps1 PowerShell script.

  • Back up the C:\ADFS Toolkit directory
  • Create a system snapshot/recovery point to return to
  • Disable/suspend the ADFS Toolkit scheduled job
  • Issue ‘Update-Module ADFS Toolkit’ADFSToolkit’
    • When Update-Module is run, it will attempt to detect if there is a newer version available from PowerShellGallery.com and download it.
    • Note that each module is downloaded into it’s own directory containing the version number of the script. ADFS Toolkit will not run properly with more than one version available so once the new version is confirmed on disk and available, we recommend moving the older version out of the PowerShell path so that only the latest version is available.
  • Migrate existing configuration file and related cache files
    • Is possible but if you hand edited the settings before, you need to re-apply the changes after migrating the configuration to the new format. There are two ways to do this
      • Create the configuration as if they are new hand entering old answers
      • Taking advantage of the pipelining features of New-ADFSTkConfiguration which can ingest your existing configuration and fetch many of the existing settings and bring them into the new format. You still need to inspect for any hand edits to be applied however.
