Error calling WCF service that is returning list.".Debugging resource strings are unavailable ......

Ok.this is just making me frustrated... Here is step by step of what I am trying to do (& not able to) 1. I am calling WCF service hosted in a SharePoint 2010 site from a silverlight app in same domain (So no cross doman I guess). 2. I use Linq to Sharepoint for querying the DB. 3. I am having a list "machines" in Sharepoint 2010 that is having a lookup column from Other list called "part" 4. My WCF method GetAllMachines() works perfectly well when it skips the lookup column "partname" & returns List of type machineitem. 5. But problem occurs when I add machineitemobject.parts.partsname in my Linq to Sharepoint query . My service gives the error not found Async_ExceptionOccurred] Arguments: Debugging resource strings are unavailable." 6. Note that return type of my Method is List<machinesitem> 7. The point to note here is that I use SPMETAL tool to generate the LINQ class that maps the lists . So When I try to query the lookup column it tries to add List item of the type class & that is what causing the error. Is it because I am not using datacontract in my service (but it returns the strings & all private members of machines list e.g. name,title etc) Is it making the attribute Serialisable will solve the error ??? I am kind of lost in it ...Plss help!!   Thanks

Web Front End does not work - service unavailable

Greetings I had problem with installing reporting services integrated with moss 2007, i somehow installed moss 2007 (web front end for the pc which will have RS instaled) without IIS, then IIS wouldnt install at all, and i decided to start over: So, i have two PC's (a PC and a virtual, to be percise). CONDORPC Has the Office Sharepoint 2007 installed and running (main server). Has SQL for the sharepoint and everything. MOSS2K7 Is the new clean install of 2008 server.   What i have installed and done to 2008 server: - Installed IIS. At first it didnt install because it had numerous problems (error log was infested with something like "could not change state of package XXX to installed state"). It asked to reboot to rollback. After reboot at second install attempt it installed correctly. - Turned off default IIS website - Installed SQL database engine as in this tutorial (http://mosshowto.blogspot.com/2009/03/reporting-services-sharepoint-multiple.html#Step-4:-Installation-of-SharePoint-2007-on-SSRS2008SPIM) This SQL will house my reporting services databases. The service is ran by network service local account. - Installed SQL RS as in the tutorial. Didnt configure it yet. It is running as domain account. - Installed .NET framework required by moss (funny how it tried to access the internet to download something athough it was a complete full download for standal

"Service Unavailable" after installing MOSS 2007


I have just installed MOSS 2007 on a machine with 64-bit Win 2K3. It installs fine but after installation navigating to the Central Administration site yields a "Service Unavailable" message.

I tried searching for reasons for this, but the event viewer has no significant logs, and the relevant services (World Wide Wed Publishing Service, Windows SharePoint Services Administration, and Windows SharePoint Services Timer are all started.

I had previously installed and run MOSS 2007 successfully on this machine, but had to uninstall and reinstall for an unconnected reason. After reinstalling, I am now getting the "Service Unavailable" error.

Can someone give me an idea what to look into to debug this issue? Thanks in advance.

Protocol error (503 Service unavailable) when calling webservice from Win2003


I'm receiving a 503 Service unavailable -error from a webservice when calling client is on WinServer 2003.

Scenario: Windows Forms (.NET 4) application calls remote webservice on windows server 2003 to fetch information.
In some cases it takes a long time for the WebService to get the informationa (long running database procedure) so the client waits for the response.
WebService timeouts are set at +30min.

The setup has worked fine for some time now but recently we discored that a particular long running request began to fail.
The Windows Forms client fails with a 503: Service Unavailable -error and ProtocolError after just a couple of minutes into waiting for the response.

We did some testing and this error occurs if the client application is installed on a Windows Server 2003 box.
If we do the same test with the client application installed on a Windows 7 box it works without errors.

It seems that it has something to do with Windows 2003 but how to debug this?
Anyone have any ideas what could be the problem?

The site starts, but when I when I close the Internet Manager the service Stops again.

When accessing SharePoint or Central Administration 3.0 a "503 Service Unavailable" error is returne

I am running a MOSS 2007 server in a test environment. I have been off building other aspects of the environment, but I come back today and notice that SharePoint is no longer working. Whenver I try to access it or the Central Administration area I recieve a "503: Service Unavailable" error.

I have also notice that after an IISRESET that the applications pools that are associated with the SharePoint sites (Extranet, Intranet, Sharepoint - 21075, and Central Administration fail to start on their own. I can start the manually. They are all running under the DOMAIN\Administrator account (as are ALL of the SharePoint related features. I know, I know, but that is what the requestor of this test environment requested).

Additionally the following error codes are logged (NOTE: These are translated from German):

Event ID: 6641
Source: Office Sharepoint Server
The SSP timer Mandate for import distribution lists did not execute.

Reason: Registration failed: The user does not have the required logon on this computer.

Event ID: 2424

Windows Service Applications Tutorials

You can easily create services by creating an application that is installed as a service. For example, suppose you want to monitor performance counter data and react to threshold values. You could write a Windows Service application that listens to the performance counter data, deploy the application, and begin collecting and analyzing data.

WCF Tip: Using Properties in Service Contracts

you'll notice all of the Service Contracts are implemented with interfaces containing only methods. For the longest time I thought that's all that was supported, until I thought about it a little more. In C# land, properties are simply wrappers around a get method and set method, so why wouldn't we be able to use properties in a service contract? Well the answer is we can.

Realizing a Service-Oriented Architecture with .NET

This article is meant to be a practical discussion guide to building a .NET application in a service-oriented architecture. We will consider real-world goals, real-world obstacles, and experience-based solutions. I quickly concede the approaches discussed here are not exhaustive or infallible. This paper is focused on application development, not application integration. We will specifically consider architectural issues and component design issues.

The Potential of Web Services

Web Service for uploading documents into SharePoint

WS UploadService is a web service written for Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 and is meant for uploading documents into SharePoint. I have just uploaded the zip file to GotDotNet.com so it will take some time before the zip file appears in the list of downloads. For the time being, you can download the zip file from the following location

Creating and Using an ASP.NET Web Service in Visual Web Developer

In addition to letting you create Web pages, Microsoft Visual Studio also lets you create Web services that use ASP.NET XML. Creating a Web service in Visual Studio is similar to creating a Web page. You can also use the Microsoft Visual Web Developer Web development tool to reference and use Web services that are in a Visual Web Developer solution, on your local computer or in a local or external UDDI directory. In this walkthrough, you will create the Web service in one solution and use it in another.

Tasks illustrated in this walkthrough include:

Creating a simple XML Web service in Visual Web Developer.

Creating a separate Web site that uses the Web service.

AutoGenerateSelectButton="False" ignored when using Domain Service


Crosspost from RIA Services forum: http://forums.silverlight.net/forums/t/196466.aspx

I'm creating a Dynamic Data application in VS2010 and have recently switched to using a Domain Service to give greater control over the data presented to the client. I've noticed that the AutoGenerate<Action>Button attributes on my GridView are being ignored. The presence of the Edit and Delete buttons appear to be contingent on the existence of Update and Delete methods on the partial classes autogenerated in the Domain Service, but i'm not seeing how to control the generation of the Select button. Is there a way to control this from within the Domain Service class?

Any framework for creating a job scheduler service?


Just curious to know if there was any official Microsoft code blocks, classes, or such for writing a service that runs other assemblies or WCF services?  That can be configured easily from a web page, pre-coded, for running tasks at certain times on certain recurring intervals?  I've already built one but am open to anything done better- which I'm sure there is.  Thanks!!!
