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

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 30, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WCF
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

Why do I get a 401 error when calling a WCF service from a web part?

I have a SharePoint 2010 web part and WCF service deployed to a web application using Kerberos authentication. The service was developed based on the walkthrough from MSDN with the only difference that ClientCredentialType = HttpClientCredentialType.Windows so that Kerberos is used. The web application is being reverse-published through ISA. However we've never had an issue with this before. We've also disabled the loopback check on the server. When the web part calls the service, a 401 error occurs with the following exception message: The HTTP request is unauthorized with client authentication scheme 'Negotiate'. The authentication header received from the server was 'NTLM'. I configured Fiddler on the web application running the web part and found that both Kerberos and NTLM authentication headers are being returned: HTTP/1.1 401 Unauthorized Server: Microsoft-IIS/7.5 SPRequestGuid: 541e724c-85a7-47a0-b045-827e1c50793c WWW-Authenticate: Negotiate oXsweaADCgEBoQsGCSqGSIL3EgECAqJlBGNgYQYJKoZIhvcSAQICAwB+UjBQoAMCAQWhAwIBHqQRGA8yMDEwMDkxNDA1MjY1NlqlBQIDDgespgMCASmpDBsKREVDUy5MT0NBTKoXMBWgAwIBAaEOMAwbCnNwX3dlYmFwcDE= WWW-Authenticate: NTLM X-Powered-By: ASP.NET MicrosoftSharePointTeamServices: Date: Tue, 14 Sep 2010 05:26:56 GMT Content-Length: 0 Proxy-Support: Session-Based-Authentication Why then is the Kerberos authentication not a

wcf returning a list from wcf service - I have lots of locations and I want to return the locations


How is it possible to return some kind of list from a wcf serivce, this the method in my wcf service 
my interface:

    [WebInvoke(Method = "GET",
        ResponseFormat = WebMessageFormat.Json,

WCF service hosted in IIS 7 returning error "Security settings for this service require 'Anonymous'

Using the CalculatorService provided as a WCF sample from MSDN, I tried to host it as an application in IIS 7. The virtual folder in IIS is configured as Basic Authentication enabled and Anonymous Authentication disabled. I don't have any certificates setup. This is all hosted in a single machine setting. Each time I access the service through a browser, I'm getting the error "Security settings for this service require 'Anonymous' Authentication but it is not enabled for the IIS application that hosts this service".

Below is my web.config --

Can someone please provide some answer, I don't want to enable Anonymous authentication in IIS. I even set the

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?

Getting Error When Calling Wrokflow Service - The operation could not be performed because WorkflowI


The scenario .  ..

I have developed a Custom Activity(CA) which has a designer like SEQUENCE.

I created a Workflow Service (XAMLX) and placed my Custom Activity(CA) as the first activity. Then I placed a RECEIVE activity within this CA and provided all the necessary details.

Now if I run the workflow service and call the service operation it is throwing execption.

Failed to invoke the service. Possible causes: The service is offline or inaccessible; the client-side configuration does not match the proxy; the existing proxy is invalid. Refer to the stack trace for more detail. You can try to recover by starting a new proxy, restoring to default configuration, or refreshing the service.

The operation could not be performed because WorkflowInstance 'a74eb5e2-72b4-4cb1-8a4d-daed6f431936' has completed.

Instead if I put the original SEQUENCE activity as first activity and then placed a RECEIVE activity it is working good. But I don't want to use SEQUENCE activity here . .. . I need my custom SEQUENCE like activity to be the first activity and make this as a place holder for other activities.

Please help to get out of these errors.

A little background because I feel I have an out of the ordinary architecture in place and don't know if this is contributing to the problem. 

We have an existing ASP.net application that is undergoing expansion.  The new functionality is all written in Silverlight 4.  As part of that expansion I gutted all the old Linq to SQL and put Entity Framework 4 into place.  To do this I created a standard .net Class Library and added my edmx files there.  Naturally, the business entities created by this cannot be used in Silverlight.  So I created a Silverlight Class Library and added all the business entities to that Silverlight Class Library as linked files.  I changed the name space to be the same.

So I have the following assembly / namespaces

Company.Project.Dal.csproj / Company.Project.Entities (.net 4 class library)

Company.Project.Entities.csproj / Company.Project.Entities (SL4 class library)

With this architecture I was able to share my business entities with my SL enabled web services, my asp.net projects, my silverlight projects.  Really it's a beautiful thing.

Once this was done I added "message" classes to Company.Project.Dal and again shared them with the other entites using linked files.  These messages are things like MyObjectRequest; they are class

"Your search cannot be completed because of a service error. Try ..."


i have a problem with search function where everytime i search any file/doc the error message "Your search cannot be completed because of a service error. Try your search again or contact your administrator for more information." occurred. I realized that there are items in central admin but it is "not available" in my site. I already follow several guides that had been provided in this forum but still the same. Even, i already create new SSP and configure the search scope, content source and also crawling. 

FYI, i used Microsoft Sharepoint 2007. 

Hope anyone could help me to solve this problem. Thanks.

RDL Rendering (500 Internal Server) Error at Sharepoint Integrated Reporting Service


I have a serious problem that cannot be solved by googling around the keywords below:
sharepoint, moss 2007, reporting service, ssrs 2008, rendering, internal server error, ....

The error is;

"An error occurred during client rendering. The remote server returned an error: (500) Internal Server Error. "

Everything is O.K.;

* When I render the report from the REPORTSERVER (http://localhost/ReportServer)
* When the reports are scheduled to be sent by the reporting service (planned via MOSS 2007) 

But if I open (render) the RDL file from the sharepoint REPORTS LIBRARY interface, all of the reports fail with that internal error message above. 

It is weird also that parametrized reports are displayed without errors although the parameters are queried from a sql dataset. But I got the error when rendering the report after I've chosen a parameter  and order "apply/report"...

Possible causes how I met that error may be;

After I have installed (then uninstalled) AJAX extensions
After I have re-configured IIS Web Service Extensions list items

Possible solution alternatives I've found;

I've found a solution on MSDN replying a similar issue with an ideal cause of the error but an evreka answer but no sol

  • VS2005 calling VS2010 asmx service returns empty string


    Anyone have any experience with this?

    We are using VS 2005 for the front end, and vs 2010 for the web services part (asmx), not wcf yet.


    Web service works just like the vs2005 when run locally, no problems.


    Connecting to it from a test app returns an empty string. Connecting to a 2005 app doesn't!

    Anyone run into this before or have a suggestion? Surely vs 2005 can connect to web services from a later version?
