Authentication: Active Directory SSO with Windows Live ID
There are compatibility issues with the AD SSO authentication on Windows 7 machines running Microsoft Live ID Assistant.
The only solution provided until now is to uninstall the Live ID, but it keeps getting installed by Windows Updates and has built in many applications (like the Essentials or Movie Maker).
Update u2d-sys-9.201023-202028.tgz.gpg from Date 15.May 2014 don't exist any more on the Sophos FTP Server. !!!
The newly Update is u2d-sys-9.201023-201025.tgz.gpg with Date 22.May.2014

Wow it took me 3 weeks to find this post!!!! Holy Cow! I had to remove the 365 Sign In Assistant to fix this issue on our network.
We realize that the Live ID Sign on Assistant breaks the behind the scenes AD SSO with Astaro but Astaro still neeeds to address the issue! We installed CRM 2011 and it broke the internet connection for every user!!!
I put my money on Astaro being able to resolve the issue over Microsoft!
Windows live id- sign-in assistant is a prereq of many MS programs, including CRM. CRM users are completely unable to use the Internet due the AD SSO failing.
We have the same problem, and often when we configure a new PC or notebook we receive the browser message "authentication failed" because we forgot to de-install the MS Live ID assistant.
Would you please change that?
