Beau Harrison 2 years ago • updated by anonymous 2 years ago 1

Description

The Identity Broker Agent connection test, and/or attempts to use the agent via the Identity Broker Changes operation, fail due to a "The requested name is valid, but no data of the requested type was found" message.

Affected Software

  • FIM Event Broker.
  • Identity Broker

Symptom

Following configuration of a new Identity Broker Agent agent, or use of the Identity Broker Changes operation, the following error appears:

The test of IdB Agent (580d394e-98fe-4657-ba2f-eb4cd41bd348) failed with message:
System.Net.Sockets.SocketException (0x80004005): The requested name is valid, but no data of the requested type was found
at System.Net.Dns.InternalGetHostByName(String hostName, Boolean includeIPv6)
at System.Net.Dns.GetHostAddresses(String hostNameOrAddress)
at System.Net.Sockets.TcpClient.Connect(String hostname, Int32 port)
at Unify.Product.EventBroker.IdentityBrokerAgent.TestConnection()
at Unify.Product.EventBroker.AgentEngine.Notify(ITestAgentConnectionMessage message)

Solution

This error means that the specified endpoint address in the agent does not exist, or the Identity Broker service is unavailable. Verify the Identity Broker service is running and contactable, and ensure the Identity Broker Agent is correctly configured.
