Error 404 when saving IdP Entity ID in NetApp

Hey Everyone,

Thanks for all the help. I just wanted to provide an update. All of the
errors are cleared in the logs and it's only info messages at this point. I
unfortunately am still getting a 404 error when trying to navigate to the
EntityID within a browser. Also, when I try to add the EntityID within
NetApp I get an error saying it can't receive the IdP metadata.

Is it possible this could be a port issue within the firewall given your
experience? I'd have to submit a request to that specific team to make sure
the correct ports are open. Before I do that, is there anything else you
might know that could cause this issue?

Thanks again!
