Connection Pooling VS Steady Connection in Windows Service Application


Hi All,

We are developing a windows service application which queries the sql db every second. For now, we have enabled connection pooling and every time we open and close connection at every access. Since it is a windows service can I open connection at service startup and close the connection shutdown

Please let me know the right approach in this scenario.





Service Application Connection: Managed Metadata Service is inaccessible


 Hello all,

I have published the MMSA in one farm so it can be connected to and consumed by another farm. The publishing farm URL is https (SSL) and the consuming farm is http (Non-SSL). The connection to the MMSA shows in Central Admin as succesful, however when I try to open the Managed Metadata in the term store in the consuming farm I get the following error:

"The Managed Metadata Service is inaccessible because the current web application has not been granted permissions to access it."

I followed all the steps in technet, including the certificate exchanges and the publishing farm MMSA has granted the consuming farm full control.


Any clues? Can a farm with SSL publish service applications to non-SSL farms?
