KDFv2 feature is not enabled on AD FS farm

Brownmattc 6 Reputation points

I am receiving Event ID 185 on our ADFS farms:

KDFv2 feature is not enabled on AD FS farm. Please make sure that all the farm nodes are patched with latest Windows Updates and the KDFv2 feature is enabled to enhance the security of the farm. For more information on this, please see https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=2153807.

The link provided by the message does not work... Does anyone know how to enable this feature?
