Identity Broker invalid endpoint error is not very clear

Matthew Clark 10 years ago updated by anonymous 5 years ago 2

If an invalid Identity Broker endpoint is entered into an Identity Broker agent, the following error is thrown when the connection is tested:

The test of Agent Test 3 IdB (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)

The error message could be made clearer so as to hint that it is likely the endpoint address which is wrong or uncontactable.

Discussed with Patrick - this should be moved to the EB300:Troubleshooting section of the documentation.
