'Unify.Framework.LDIFAdapterServiceHostDecorator' has zero application (non-infrastructure) endpoints

When trying to start the Identity Broker Service receive the following error when using the debug:

C:\Program Files\UNIFY Solutions\Services>Unify.Service.Connect.Debug.exe
Unify.Framework.UnifyServerStartException: Service 'Unify.Framework.LDIFAdapterS
erviceHostDecorator' has zero application (non-infrastructure) endpoints. This m
ight be because no configuration file was found for your application, or because
no service element matching the service name could be found in the configuratio
n file, or because no endpoints were defined in the service element. ---> System

Hi Patrick could you please have a look at this as a matter of urgency?

Hey Andre

Just saw this before and I've had a bit of experience with this. I'm assuming you're using the debugger because you're getting another error message telling you the service won't start. The debugger actually requires it's own .exe.config file, ie. "Unify.Service.Connect.Debug.exe.config". This will need to have the same contents as the "Unify.Service.Connect.exe.config" file you provided.

This point is described in https://unifysolutions.jira.com/wiki/display/IDB307/Debugger where it suggests copying the config file and renaming it with the name listed above.


Changed to type "Defect" as this isn't a Client Support issue, it is a technical issue raised during the course of a project.

Hi Matt, yes you are correct we did this as the service didn't want to start and Peter Wass has created a copy of the file attached and renamed it as required and we then received the error above.

I assume also that you are attempting to debug a reason for the Identity Broker service not starting. If you resolve this issue and need assistance with that, please raise another issue of type "Defect" and let me know through Lync.

Please supply a directory listing of files in the services directory.

The Identity Broker 3 directory is:

C:\Program Files\Unify Solutions\Service|

The files is as follow:

Unify.Service.Connect.Debug.exe.config doesn't exist. As per Matt's instructions, you need to copy the existing Unify.Service.Connect.exe.config file and rename it to Unify.Service.Connect.Debug.exe.config

The issue was that the Unify.Service.Connect.Debug.exe.config file was missing the exe part. Change the file name and the Debugger work.
