We configured Shibboleth IdP as per the instruction in https://wiki.shibboleth.net/confluence/display/SHIB2/IdPInstall and tested with testshib. While testing Identity Provider through https://sp.testshib.org/ we given the entityID as https://shibboleth.citrus.local/idp/shibboleth but we are getting an error message in browser as follows:

We are able to test both servers shibboleth idp and shibboleth sp in two different servers seperately with testshib. So let me know whether we can avoid testshib and we can use our shibboleth idp and sp for SSO authentication. Please update me.

Thanks

There is no requirement to use TestShib, it's there as a convenience so you have a known working installation to test yours against.

Looking at your log, it appears the ERROR messages are referring to your login handlers not being set up properly. Out of the box, Shib itself does not know how to authenticate a user, you must configure a login handler for that. Several are included in the distribution that you can choose from and/or you can write your own.

I would suggest looking at your login handler set up first. Make sure what you've set up is correct and has access to validate credentials. Also make sure there are no ERROR level logs on a start up prior to attempting a login.

There are guides there for installation and configuration of both the IdP and SP software.
