Running SharePoint Server 2010 RTM. Fresh install in production not via the wizard but a vanilla install and bringing services up one by one. Just brought up the Business Data Connectivity Service. Other services currently up are Managed Metadata
Service and User Profile Service. Two web applications with services deployed to both web applications. The scenario below holds true when connecting to a site on either web application.
1) Open a site, i.e., root portal site, in SharePoint Designer 2010
2) Click External Content Types. Error returned: "The Business Data Connectivity Metadata Store is currently unavailable" is returned.
3) Click Ok then click New | External Content Type. Error returned "THe server was unable to process the request due to an internal error. For more information about the error, either turn on IncludeExceptionDetailInFaults...".
The Business Data Connectivity Service status in Central Administration is Started. Any ideas?
