SharePoint Designer 2010: Business data connectivity metadata store is unavailable

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 13, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 
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?

googled it, found some fix:

1. install the hotfix

Urgent: The business data connectivity metadata store is currently unavailable SP designer

  
Hi,   I am getting the following error when runnind SP designer and referencing external content types.   The BDC service is running on the server, however if I click the link to configure the service I get:   The server did not provide a meaningful reply; this might be caused by a contract mismatch, a premature session shutdown or an internal server error. and in the event log: The BDC Service application BDCTest is not accessible. The full exception text is: The server did not provide a meaningful reply; this might be caused by a contract mismatch, a premature session shutdown or an internal server error. An exception occurred when trying to issue security token: The server did not provide a meaningful reply; this might be caused by a contract mismatch, a premature session shutdown or an internal server error.   Can anyone please help?        

The Business Data Connectivity metadata store is unavailable. (WCF hotfix is installed)

  
Trying to create an External Content Type in SPD and received this message.  I did some research and installed WCF hotfix and still got this message.  After some more troubleshooting, determined that it is related to SSL because when I open the non-SSL site (same site just http instead of https), I CAN create the External Content Type.  Has anyone seen this and have a solution?  Thanks in addvance for you help.

SharePoint Designer 2010 External Content Types Data Source Already Exists in Business Data Connecti

  

I used the Secure Store to create connection in SharePoint 2010 Designer External Content Types Data Source Explorer.  Later I changed some column names in the table.  I deleted the connection from Data Source Explorer and recreated it. I right clicked on the table and selected Create All Operations. When I clicked the Finish button, I got "The system definition with the same name as this data source already exists in the Business Data Connectivity Metadata Store and it refers to a different data source.  Cannot complete operation generation.  Add a connection to this data source with a different name and try again." 

I re-created the Secure Store using a different name in SharePoint 2010 Central Administration.  I didn't find the option to choose the connection name in SharePoint 2010 Designer. After I clicked Add Connection, I entered the Database Server and the Database Name, selected Connect with Impersonated Window Identity, entered Secure Store name, and clicked OK. The connection created with the database name as before.

Fast Search 4 Sharepoint 2010 Business Data Connectivity (BDC) - IEntity Could not be found

  

Hi, I am using Fast for Sharepoint and I have created a simple Employee database in SQL server 2008 and I am trying to crawl this database.

Using Sharepoint designer, I have created an external repository and I have configured it to look at my test database. After trying to crawl this database - I get two successfyul documents crawled - which are just junk documents. And 5 errors.  The errors say:

Error while crawling LOB contents. ( IEntity could not be found using criteria 'Id=2502'. )

I also noticed that if I was to disable "Defaul Action" from the BDC configuration, then I get all successful crawled documents. However, if I click on any of those documents in the search page, then it brings me to "unkown page". 

This makes sense since Default Action (View Profiles) is disabled. Does anyone know how to avoid this error message above without having to disable Defaul Action check box? 

P.S. I can also see that the connection between SQL Server - BDC - SP is working since when I create a user profile page, I can see that data populate.
