net.pipe binding and Pipe is being closed error.

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 30, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WCF
Hi, I am using net named pipe binding for the communication. I have came across many blogs regarding the 'pipe is being closed' error. When pipe is inactive then it is getting closed. I have set is and every time out to max. But still I get this error. Even I set the IdleTimeout as below. Then also my connection get closed. namedPipeBinding.CreateBindingElements().Find<NamedPipeTransportBindingElement>().ConnectionPoolSettings.IdleTimeout = new TimeSpan(23,0,0,0); And at server side I have (as I see in many blogs suggestion to avoid the closing of pipe) namedPipeBinding.ReceiveTimeout = timeOut; Is there any specific reason for this? ThanksRegards, Nakul

Login error - No process is on the other end of the pipe on initial logon attempt

I am having a logon problem with asp.net apps that were created using Visual Web Developer 2008.  Data is on SQL Server Express 2008 running on Windows 2003 server with IIS6.  Connection is on a LAN.  The first time I try to log in to the site, I get the following error:Server Error in '/' Application.A connection was successfully established with the server, but then an error occurred during the login process.

Send/open timeouts on WAS-hosted WCF service with named pipe orTCP binding, per-call instancing

We have a client that sends requests to a per-call WCF service (WAS hosted, NP binding, same machine) in a loop. The WCF service calls an external EXE to process requests. The operations on the service can take a few seconds, or a few hours. To combat this, we have sendTimeout=00:05:00, receiveTimeout=00:05:00 and a built-in circuit-breaker on the service that kills the external process after 00:05:00. Any service-side errors are returned to the client as FaultExceptions.  On the client, FaultExceptions are logged and the client proxy is aborted (proxy.Abort()). The client has configurable multithreading. In this example, it is running 3 threads, each of which creates a proxy, makes a call, and closes the proxy (or aborts it if an exception was received). Since the service is instanced as per-call, and it never receives more than 3 simultaneous calls (each of which being followed by a .Close() or .Abort() on the proxy), I would not expect the client to be getting timeouts during the send, but I am. In fact, the send timeouts I am receiving would seem to imply that the WCF service is hitting the default session limit, even though the class is explicitly marked with [ServiceBehavior(InstanceContextMode = InstanceContextMode.PerCall)]. I put some trace logging on the client and I can see that the timeout is occurring when the proxy is being created. sendTimeout seems to

conflicting binding with net.pipe and weak wildcard

Greetings. This is the error in the event log:

An error occurred in the Activation Service 'NetPipeActivator' of the protocol 'net.pipe' while trying to listen for the site '123456789', thus the protocol is disabled for the site temporarily. See the exception message for more details.
 URL: WeakWildcard:net.pipe://machine1.domain.com/
 Status: ConflictingRegistration
 Process Name: SMSvcHost
 Process ID: 1964

My product is programmatically adding to 2 sites the net.pipe binding:

 site.Bindings.Add("*", "net.pipe");

Documentation on the Add method does not contemplate net.pipe, only HTTP and HTTPS. When adding bindings manually in  IIS there's a field called "Binding Information". I'm looking for the solution to the problem above. But will someone also please explain what this "Binding Informatino" is and how it is interpreted by IIS? 

thank you,

Linq2Sql error: "Invalid attempt to call Read when reader is closed."


I've read up on this error from other posts and on other sites, but haven't found a solid resolution to the issue yet. My setup is as follows:

I have a RepositoryBase class that fields certain db calls that all repositories need to perform. In one such call, "GetSecurityGroup", it works most of the time, but will seemingly at random throw an exception with the error "Invalid attempt to call Read when reader is closed." All other Repository classes inherit from this one, and they all use the same DataContext object, which I understand isn't thread safe. Since there could be multiple calls to the DataContext object on the same page, perhaps one is using the DataContext when the next tries to do so. I'm not sure. What can I do to ensure this doesn't happen?

Error Consuming Web Service - Unable to import binding xxx from namespace ...


In VS2008 / C# / ASP.NET 3.5, I wrote a test web service app. Here is an extract from the code:

namespace emed.MathWebService
    /// <summary>
    /// Sample Math Services For Learning Web Services Deployment
    /// </summary>
    [WebService(Namespace = " http://localhost/MathService")]
    [WebServiceBinding(ConformsTo = WsiProfiles.BasicProfile1_1)]
    public class MathService
        public float Add(float a, float b)
            return a + b;


I have published this to an IIS virtual directory named MathService, and when I try to launch it with the URL http://localhost/mathservice/MathService.asmx is works fine and displays all the operations (Add, Subtract etc) in the service.

I then created a test web application in VS2008 (named WebSvcTe

Binding of complex entity turns into validation error

consider classic example: Product and Category editing Product in dropdown Id of Category is selected - Category mapped as object with all fields empty except Id when submitting Product edit form - validation gives an error: "Category name is required" (I have Required attribute on Category Name property) How deal with such errors if I want to use built-in validation (if (!ModelState.IsValid))? Writing custom data binder which would fill all such id-only-objects with values from database comes to mind.upd: I did small research of mvc code and found out that validation happens before binding - so this solution would't work. Do you have any other solutions for this problem?

System.Net.WebException: The underlying connection was closed: An unexpected error occurred on a rec

Hello Guys,         I am getting following exception while web service (ASMX) is returning the response. <!-- [if gte mso 10]> <mce:style> System.Net.WebException: The underlying connection was closed: An unexpected error occurred on a receive.     <!-- [if gte mso 10]> <mce:style>                                                     InnterException (System.IO.Exception): "Unable to read data from the transport connection: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host."       I think either the Asp.net web server is closing the connection or the response is too long.   Following is my simple code.    1)   namespace JFA.IndiePay.BusinessAccess { public class VerTexProcessor { public DataSet ProcessVerTexForBatch(DataSet dsInputRequest) { DataSet dsResponse = new DataSet(); //Call vertex web service here.

The underlying connection was closed: An unexpected error occurred on a receive

Hi All,   i have developed a web application to call WCF service (which is hosted in IIS) from client application using .Net 1.1 it works fine.   but i got an error "The underlying connection was closed: An unexpected error occurred on a receive." when the return object is getting complex.   i analysis the issue with different level of object complexity and i found it get failed for following structure.   eg:   ObjectA - outer object that has some primitive data types and the list of ObjectB ObjectB - this also contain some primitive data and list of ObjectC.   Hope you can understand the hierarchy (complexity) of the return object. This works up to 2nd level of object hierarchy.   Does anyone have idea about the solution for this exception?   Thanks in Advance Shazvi

Getting net.pipe protocol scheme working n IIS 7

Hello!We have several web services that all work together.  These have been tested in our DEV envrionment and are working quite well.  One of these is a caching manager that runs on each server and the client services talk to it via named Pipes which is quite fast!  Today, we started moving our services from DEV to our PROD environment running on Server2008 R2.  Our dev envrionment is Windows 7.  Where as our DEV envrionment is a single machine sandbox, our PROD environment is multiple servers and multiple web sites.  We have a single site set up on each server to run this namedPipe enabled service.  We set everything up (at least from IIS) to be identical to the Win7 IIS environment, but we just cannot get the SVC page to show us the service definition.When I get into the console of IIS , right click on the SVC file and select BROWSE, I get an error as folows:Could not find a base address that matches scheme net.pipe for the endpoint with binding NetNamedPipeBinding. Registered base address schemes are [http]. We did install the activiation component of .net on our IIS server.We are running .Net 3.5.1 on our IIS server (running IIS 7.0 on Server 2008 R2)However, when I go to the advanced settings for my site, and look at Enabled Protocols I see:http,net.pipe,net.tcp And when I go to my application under the site and look at advanced settings I see:http,net.pipe,net.tcp This is

Data binding - strange error message

Hi, I am getting an inexplicable error message on attempting to run a simple WPF data binding application based on an example with video downloaded from MSDN. VB / VS 2008 Pro / .NET 3.5 SP1 / XP SP3 The error (ex.Message) is "The specified registry key does not exist" in response to an attempt to define the data context to populate a listbox, but no explicit registry operation is involved at all. The code is: Private taTable1 As New D1DataSetTableAdapters.Table1TableAdapter Private D1Data As New D1DataSet . . . Try     Me.taTable1.Fill(Me.D1Data.Table1)     Me.DataContext = Me.D1Data.Table1        ' this statement generates the exception Catch ex As Exception The error message is giving no obvious clue.  What is going on? P.S. The MSDN sample application uses the following code to sort the listbox items: Me.DataContext = From p In Me.dsProduct.Product Order By p.Name This construct does not work when I try to use it - VS 2008 reports that "'Name' is not a member of 'System.Data.DataRow'".  How may this error be avoided?

Pipe SQL Query function into Variable with no column headings

Hello, I don't know if I'm in the right forum but could not find one for Powershell. I need to return 1 piece of data from a sql database to a variable. I don't want the column headings. Here's what I have so far:         Function GetMenuGroup ([int]$StoreID) { $SqlConnection = New-Object System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection $SqlConnection.ConnectionString = "Server=Servername;Database=DatabaseName;Integrated Security=True" $SqlCmd = New-Object System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand $SqlCmd.CommandText = "exec storedProcedure $StoreID" $SqlCmd.Connection = $SqlConnection $SqlAdapter = New-Object System.Data.SqlClient.SqlDataAdapter $SqlAdapter.SelectCommand = $SqlCmd $DataSet = New-Object System.Data.DataSet $SqlAdapter.Fill($DataSet)|out-null $SqlConnection.Close() $DataSet.Tables[0] } $MG=Getdata 2 |out-string Here's the results I get now - How do I return just "DatathatIreallyWant" in a string variable? I don't want the column or underline. ColumnName ------------- DataThatIreallyWant   Thank you, MG2

What is the correct error handling in custom model binding?

Hello,I am working on a Custom Model Binder where a certain error can occur.When this happens it returns null and a error is added to the ModelState.The problem is that in some projects I am using Fluent Validation and the errors messages I am adding through FV are not taking effect.The message added by the Model Binder always prevails.Should the Model Binder add error messages or just bind the field and return null if some problem happened?What would be the correct implementation for this?Thanks,Miguel

Error from AS2005 - Binding for column 'xxxxx' is not a ColumnBinding type

I've seen this question come up a couple times on the public .olap newsgroup, but I've never seen an answer, so I'm going to give it another try:I'm getting an error when I try to incrementally process my SSAS 2005 cube:    Errors in the high-level relational engine. The binding for the 'column-name' column is not a ColumnBinding type.In this case, the column name that's given is a name that occurs in only 1 table in the underlying schema, so I know unambiguously which column it's talking about.  The relevant part of the schema is roughly this:create table Date(    DateID int not null primary key,     /* ... */);create table File(    FileID int not null primary key,    FileDateID int not null foreign key references Date(DateID),    /* ... */);create table Fact(    /* ... */    DateID int not null foreign key references Date(DateID),    FileID int not null foreign key references File(FileID));The column that's named in the error message is File.FileDateID.  Note that this is not a pure snowflake schema - there's a "loop" that associates files with dates in addition to other date relationships within the main fact table.  I'm just guessing that the root of the problem has something to do with non-snowflake-ness of the schema.  Full processing of the database/cube works fine - it's only when I try to process incrementally or create aggregations that I get thi

JDBC connection to SQLserver failing with ERROR [JDBCExceptionReporter] The connection is closed.

SQL server version: MS 2005 9.00.3050.00 Std edition Development version is on a stand alone server. Production is on an active/active cluster. Full error message below. There is an explanation and solution as noted below. However we do not see this issue in all our environments. Can anyone tell me why we see this issue in our production environment but not on our development environment, especially as the issue seems to arise following low usage times. Explanation / Solution If you are using the v1.2 driver, and you can positively rule out transient network connectivity issues and multithreaded usage, the next most common cause I am aware of is where a connection pool is being used and the pooling manager (e.g. DBCP or C3PO) does not test pooled connections for validity before handing them out to the app. What happens in this case is connections that sit idle in the pool for a very long time get closed by the TCP/IP stack, routing hardware, etc. Then they're already dead when the pooling manager hands them out. The solution is to configure the pooling manager to validate connections before handing them out, typically using a validation query like "SELECT 1".
