The following table lists additional SOAP Toolkit errors that can be returned by the WSDL procedures.
Sending HTTP and SOAP requests using S-HTTP requires additional setup.
Several Microsoft® Windows® registry values allow customization of the HTTP and SOAP Provider. These values are located in \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Provisioning\Providers\MPFSoapProv.
|CleanupSleepTime||Number of milliseconds the cleanup thread sleeps before
browsing the list of connections to clean up. Cleaning up
connections locks out all threads from connections, which is why
this should not be done too frequently.
Default Value: 120,000
|CompletionThreads||Number of completion threads to specify when initializing the
provider's HTTP engine.
Default Value: 0 (auto-adjusts four threads per processor)
If either CompletionThreads or ConnectionThreads is zero, set
both as follows:
|ConnectionExclusionInterval||Number of milliseconds to wait before re-attempting a failed
connection with a server.
Default Value: 0 (no waiting)
Whenever the provider cannot successfully send requests to a server, it immediately places the server on a bad server list and returns an error to indicate that the remote service is currently unavailable. At periodic intervals (for example, every 50,000 milliseconds), the provider re-attempts the connection.
This setting minimizes unnecessary resource consumption of network bandwidth, CPU cycles, and other system resources during a failure. It also enables the provider to generate a more immediate error to alert the caller that the server is not available.
Connection unavailable time can be specified either in the registry or in individual requests (in the connectionExclusionInterval node). Requests use the default registry value whenever they do not have a value for connectionExclusionInterval.
Note: The provider adds a server to the bad server list only for the provisioning engine that executes the provider. Other engines include the server on their bad server lists only if they also experience a failure.
|ConnectionThreads||Number of connection threads to specify when initializing the
provider's HTTP engine.
Default Value: 0 (auto-adjusts one thread for every two
If either ConnectionThreads or CompletionThreads is zero, set
both as follows:
|ConnectionTimeout||Number of milliseconds to waith for a server connection to
complete before terminating and returning an error. The server
connection can be shared and left open for multiple requests.
Default Value: 30,000
|FailureTriggerForExclusionList||Number of consecutive failures that must occur before a URL is
included on a bad server list.
Default Value: 5
|LogEvents||Identifies whether the provider logs transaction failures to
the event log.
Default Value: 1 (logs events)
|MaxConnections||Number of connections a connection pool can contain. An attempt
to generate additional connections will result in an error.
Default Value: 150
|MinConnections||Number of connections a connection pool starts out with.
Default Value: 3
|RetrySleepTime||Number of milliseconds to wait before retrying after receiving
an erroneous response.
Default Value: 1,000
|ServerTTL||Number of milliseconds to allow a server to remain inactive. If
the cleanup thread is cleaning up and the server is inactive longer
than this value, its pool of connections will be disconnected and
Default Value: 60,000
|UseConnectionPool||Boolean that specifies whether the provider uses connection
0: Connection pooling is disabled. Every request creates and destroys its own connection.
1 (default): A connection pool is created for each unique connection string, and connection objects are created and added to the pool as needed to satisfy the pool's minimum size requirement (as specified by the MinConnections setting).
|UseProxy||Boolean that specifies whether to use a proxy server.
0 (default): Do not use proxy server.
1: Use proxy server.
If you have difficulties getting the HTTP and SOAP Provider to connect to a remote server (for example, you keep getting DNS errors) and you have a proxy server on the network, change UseProxy to 1. Afterwards, shut down and restart the MPF provisioning engine in Administrative Tools, Component Services.
By default, the HTTP and SOAP Provider derives its proxy handling from the Internet Explorer proxy server settings defined for the MPFServiceAcct logon account. (In Internet Explorer, on the Tools menu, click Internet Options, click Connections, click LAN Settings, and then click Proxy server.) However, for security reasons, an Active Directory security policy might prohibit MPFServiceAcct from local logons. There are two ways to work around this situation.
First, you can disable the existing proxy setting and set the new proxy information directly into the Windows registry.
Alternatively, you can temporarily deactivate the security policy for MPFServiceAcct, then log on to update the proxy setting in Internet Explorer. Afterward, you would log off and re-establish the security policy for MPFServiceAcct.
Note The provider currently only supports a ProxyOverride value of "<local>". Other semicolon-delimited server names in the list are ignored.
The following table lists common problems and solutions.
|Proxy or DNS errors||Consider setting the UseProxy registry key.|
|Server timeouts||If a server application runs too slowly, you can review NetMon and PerfMon (for MPF performance counters such as Latency) or attach a debugger to the server process. If the timeout only occurs under stress, try increasing the NumThreads value for the registry key \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MSSOAP\SOAPISAP on the server until there are enough threads to support the required load.|
|Invalid SSL certificate for WSDL procedures||Use Internet Explorer to verify that the URL for the wsdlFile element works, then verify the service port address returned in the WSDL file. All three must use S-HTTP, and all three must have exactly the same target server name. The typical error codes are 0x80090322 and 0x80090325.|
|15-second delay in the first request to a server||This problem can be caused by a DNS lookup timeout before a successful NetBIOS name lookup. Fix the DNS problem, use the IP address, or try the full DNS name.|
|Error 0x800401F3||This error occurs when a wsmlFile node is specified, but the object specified by the WSML file's ProgId is not installed on the same machine as the provider. To prevent this problem, either omit wsmlFile or install the object.|
|HttpRequest||Generates and sends Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) GET and POST requests to a remote Web server. This procedure supports requests that perform updates subject to rollback.|
|HttpRequestWithNoRollback||Generates and sends HTTP GET and POST requests to a remote Web server. This procedure supports requests such as queries that do not require rollback in the event of a failure.|
|PassportEncrypt||Wrapper for Passport.Crypt object. Encrypts request information before passing it to a Microsoft® .NET Passport site.|
|SoapRequest||Generates and sends Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) requests to a remote server. This procedure supports requests that perform updates subject to rollback.|
|SoapRequestWithNoRollback||Generates and sends SOAP requests to a remote server. This procedure supports requests such as queries that do not require rollback in the event of a failure.|
|WSDLRequest||Sends SOAP requests in Web Services Descriptor Language (WSDL) to COM objects on remote servers. This procedure supports requests that perform updates subject to rollback.|
|WSDLRequestWithNoRollback||Sends SOAP requests in WSDL to COM objects on remote servers. This procedure supports requests such as queries that do not require rollback in the event of a failure.|
