Event ID 12 in Microsoft-Windows-IIS-Configuration/Administrative once the Log has been enabled RRS feed

    Hi Everyone, my first post on these forums, please be gentle with me :-)

    Whilst trying to diagnose a Sharepoint / Forefront ID Manager 2010 installation situation, I enabled the IIS Configuration / Admin event log. Immediately I was getting a number of warning Events (ID number 12) relating to sections in configuration files that do not match to a particular schema.

    An example is as follows

    - System

    - Provider

    [ Name] Microsoft-Windows-IIS-Configuration

    [ Guid] {DC0B8E51-4863-407A-BC3C-1B479B2978AC}

    EventID 12

    Version 0

    Level 3

    Task 0

    Opcode 0

    Keywords 0x8000000000000000

    - TimeCreated

    [ SystemTime] 2011-06-13T00:56:38.453248000Z

    EventRecordID 2486


    - Execution

    [ ProcessID] 1756

    [ ThreadID] 1828

    Channel Microsoft-IIS-Configuration/Administrative

    Computer FIM.alex.test

    - Security

    [ UserID] S-1-5-18
    - EventData

    PhysicalPath \\?\C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727\CONFIG\web.config

    FileConfigPath MACHINE/WEBROOT


    SectionPath system.serviceModel/serviceHostingEnvironment

    Unable to find schema for config section 'system.serviceModel/serviceHostingEnvironment'. This section will be ignored

    Now this seems to happen even on a default installation of Win2K8R2 and the only thing I can think of is that there is an updated schema that my machine does not have access to (not connected to Web) or contained in an update I have not yet applied.

    Does anyone have any ideas if this is just me or something more widespread. .NET has not been configured especially by me, although FIM or SPS may have. The date/time for the config file looks default.

    Thanks in advance

    As the config section "system.serviceModel" is Windows Communication Foundation related configuration, please make sure the "Windows Communication Foundation HTTP Activation" and "Windows Communication Foundation Non-HTTP Activation" role service are installed via server manager.
