Release Notes for AD FS 2.0 RU3 updated

Working with a customer recently, we ran into problems with RU3 and the sharing of SAML signing certificates between RPs in their test environment. After applying RU3, as mentioned in the previous post, additional manual actions are required. However, it turns out, following a nice long troubleshooting call with those lovely folks at support, that there are is more to this tale:

2. AD FS SQL database configurations need to run a script locally on a SQL Server node. This file is known as RelaxedRequestSigningCertsv2.sql  and is available via a newly updated article on the support site (KB 2790338) or directly via the following link:
