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

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 16, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 
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?

SharePoint Designer 2010: Business data connectivity metadata store is unavailable

  
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?

The Business Data Connectivity Metadata Store is currently unavailable in sharepoint designer 2010

  
I am getting the following error when runnind SP designer and trying to create new  external content types.

"The Business Data Connectivity Metadata Store is currently unavailable."

checked in ULS Logger, the actual error is "SharePoint Foundation Claims Authentication 8305 Critical An exception occurred when trying to establish endpoint for context: The 'CustomBinding'.'http://tempuri.org/' binding for the 'IWSTrustChannelContract'.'http://tempuri.org/' contract is configured with an authentication mode that requires transport level integrity and confidentiality. However the transport cannot provide integrity and confidentiality.. 5d0b275a-dfa8-4834-ba5a-d8ed7d58abd1"

googled it, found some fix:

1. install the hotfix

2. simply checking the services are running

3. checking for necessary security permissions on the BDC Service Application

4. using the 'disableloop

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.

Business Data Connectivity Services Problem

  
I'm having problems getting Business Data Services to work. When I go into: Central Administration -> Service Applications -> Business Data Connectivity Services I get the error 'keyset does not exist' I've been doing some reading and come to the conclusion it's something to do with authentication? We use NTLM authentication and I'm wondering if we need to set up sharepoint to use kerberos. Does anybody know about this problem? Thanks

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.  


Remote Debugging error while creating business data connectivity model

  

Hi Everyone,

                  I have a scenario where I have to get the data from two of the stored proc's in the SQL Server and create an assocation between those models.I cannot use Sharepoint designer as there is no relationship existing between those two entities.So,I have used visual studio business data connectivity model to fulfill this requirement.I created the model with filter descriptors,input parameters and all and related those as suggested by MSDN and used LINQ to SQL to pull the actual stored procedure into the readlist and readitem methods.My issue here is,when I debug this project,I am receiving an error message tht says "remote procedure cannot be debugged.this usually indicates debugging hasn't been enabled".Then I changed the debug entry in the web.config to true to solve this issue.But,still I received the same error...what do you think might be stopping me from going ahead..ur suggestions and tips helps me a lot..

 

Thanks all..

External List Error - Access denied by Business Data Connectivity

  

Hello Community,

Background: In SPS 2010 I created an External Content Type that is displaying the Customers table from a Customers database in SQL Server 2008. (I also added myself as the DBO for that database.) I configured the ECT to authenticate with the User's Identity and to also use the Secondary Secure Store Application ID "contoso\administrators". I then added both these accounts to the Business Data Connectivity Service and granted them all four permission sets. I configured the ECT Operations to perform all operations, and I filtered the return by limiting it to a 100 items.  Using the Create List and Form wizard I then created an External List from the ECT. 

Problem: When I display the External List in the browser I get this error - Access denied by Business Data Connectivity.

I have read several blogs about this issue (which seems to be common) but I still can't resolve it.  Can anyone help?

Thanks!

Tom

How to store more than 4k bytes of data in SQL CE 4?

  

I need to store more than 4k of bytes in my SQLCE 4 database. How can I do that with the ASP.NET Web Pages 1.0?

1: The Microsoft.Data provider fails when I try to populate a parameter with more than 4k bytes.
2: Referencing SqlServerCe assembly and using SqlCeConnection/SqlCeCommand/SqlCeParameter throws exception:  SQL Server Compact is not intended for ASP.NET development.

How can I somehow map the generic DbType, which does not have NText as an option, to the ntext column in my database? (SqlCeParameter supports DbSqlType, which has ntext, but see problem #2)
