BizTalk: Failed to update binding information

Post from: http://felixmondelo.blogspot.com/2008/05/deploy-orchestrations-failed-to-update.html

Receive Location '' has no Transport type specified.

BizTalk stores info about the last deployments in:
C:\Documents and Settings\[user name]\Application Data\Microsoft\BizTalk Server\Deployment\BindingFiles
Windows 7
C:\Users\[user name]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\BizTalk Server\Deployment\BindingFiles

When you do a redeployment, BizTalk uses this information. If this information is with errors, we get this error "Failed to update binding information".

Solution is to remove the info binding file.

I added @Password parameter:

SharePoint disable loopback check

I was constantly prompted for the username and password. In SharePoint 2010, it can really annoy you by not accepting your username password credentials in the popup window.

Its a ‘feature’ on the server that you need to disable as a workaround.
Caution: Microsoft Best practices is out of scope in this article. Do your own research on this topic.

You would need to create a DWORD registry key in the registry called DisableLoopbackCheck and set it to 1.
Follow these steps:

Click Start, click Run
Type regedit, and then click OK
In Registry Editor, locate the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa
Right-click Lsa, point to New, and then click DWORD Value. (In Win 2008, its DWORD 32bit)
Type DisableLoopbackCheck, and then press ENTER.
Right-click DisableLoopbackCheck, and then click Modify.
In the Value data box, type 1 and then click OK.
Quit Registry Editor.
You may need to restart your server.

For more information about this, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 281308 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/281308/ ) Connecting to SMB share on a Windows 2000-based computer or a Windows Server 2003-based computer may not work with an alias name.

The type was not expected. Use the XmlInclude or SoapInclude attribute to specify types that are not known statically.

Post from: http://www.johnsoer.com/blog/?p=125&cpage=1#comment-5494

  1. public class Test
  2. {
  3. private string _Field = "";
  4. public string Field
  5. {
  6. get { return _Field; }
  7. set { _Field = value; }
  8. }
  9. }
  10. public class TestInherited : Test
  11. {
  12. }
  13. public class Container
  14. {
  15. private Test ivField;
  16. public Test Field
  17. {
  18. get { return _Field; }
  19. set { _Field = value; }
  20. }
  21. }
  22. Container _Test = new Container();
  23. _Test.Field = new TestInherited();
new XmlSerializer(typeof(Container), new Type[] { typeof(TestInherited) });

This solution was not working for me because:

There was a namspace on my XmlRoot element [XmlRoot("Container", Namespace = "http://namespace", IsNullable = false)]

When i removed namespase, the problem was gone.

Hope this helps someone.

SSRS 2008 R2 and UAC problem

Post from: http://calebs71.blogspot.com/2010/09/ssrs-2008-domain-user-issue.html

Scenario: I have a new SQL Server Reporting Services 2008 R2 x64 instance that works if you are the local administrator. Once I switch to another user who is an implied administrator via an AD group I get the following error when attempting to access SSRS in a browser:

"User 'TESTDOM\user' does not have required permissions. Verify that sufficient permissions have been granted and Windows User Account Control (UAC) restrictions have been addressed."

The user is a member of the domain admins group which is obviously a member of the local admins. Also if I right click on IE8 and say "Run As Administrator" it works. The quick fix is to disable the UAC. If you don't want to do that then just do the below:

1. Launch IE8 using "Run As Administrator" and in SSRS (http://servername/Reports) click on Site Settings. In Site Settings navigate to "Security" and add your user "TESTDOM\user" as a System Administrator.

2. Click on "Home" and then "Folder Settings". Now add your account again this time assigning yourself all the roles (Browser, Content Manager, My Reports, Publisher, Report Builder).

3. Close Administrative IE session and open a normal IE8 window and your SSRS should work.
