KB2756920 Crashes SharePoint


We notice on several SharePoint Farms powered by Windows 2008 R2-pre SP1, that service securitytoken.svc failed on compilation since deploying KB2756920 .

Look for this error in SharePoint Logs :

Exception: System.ServiceModel.ServiceActivationException: The service ‘http://<server>/SecurityTokenServiceApplication/securitytoken.svc&#8217; cannot be activated due to an exception during compilation

Removing this KB or deploying Windows 2008R2SP1 seems to correct this issue.

Some articles mention a dependency to claims authentication, but we met this exception on basic-authentication web app…

    Good day! This is my first comment here so I just wanted to give a quick
    shout out and tell you I truly enjoy reading through your
    posts. Can you suggest any other blogs/websites/forums that
    go over the same subjects? Thank you!

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect
    with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

      Thanks for your feedback. this is a Technical blog, visual design is not my priority yet. I’m focusing on content for the moment 😉
