Check Your ADFS URLs
If you’re an IT admin and users start complaining about the max_reload_exceeded error, check the Microsoft Teams URLs. If the authentication process passes through ADFS (Active Directory Federation Services), ensure that users are indeed redirected to ADFS.
Pull the logs and check if you see the ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED error. If the error is present on the logs, it indicates that Microsoft Team is not redirecting users to the ADFS service to authenticate them.
As a quick reminder, ADFS is a component of Windows Server that admins use to authenticate users to apps and programs.
