For the Windows Server Technical Preview, the AD FS server role includes the same functionality and feature set that is available in Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2. It also includes new features that enable you to configure AD FS to authenticate users stored in non-AD directories, such as X.500 compliant Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) directories and SQL databases. In many organizations, identity management solutions consist of a combination of Active Directory, AD LDS and third-party LDAP directories, as well as SQL databases. With the AD FS support of the non-AD identity stores, you can benefit from the entire enterprise-ready AD FS feature set regardless of where your user identities are stored

YES!, YES!, YES!, YES!, YES!, YES!, YES!, YES!, YES!, YES!. F-I-N-A-L-L-Y !!!

For more information, see Configure AD FS to authenticate users stored in LDAP directories.

Cheers,
Jorge
