BizTalk Runtime configuration error - "Creation of Adapter FILE Configuration Store entries failed"

    Question

  • Hi,

    I am trying to install Biztalk Server 2006 R2 on a Vista Ultimate
    edition machine. I completed the installation successfully, and have
    configured "Enterprise SSO" and "Group" features. I am getting the
    following error while configuring the BizTalk Runtime feature.

    "Creation of Adapter FILE Configuration Store entries failed.
    The SSO system is currently disabled."

    I have already done/tried the following:

    1. I tried different settings - Inprocess only, Inprocess and
    isolated, each trusted, each with a regular user account and each with
    an administrator user account. In all cases I get the same error.

    2. I have made the changes suggested here (related to rpc
    authentication changes after Windows XP SP2) but it still doesnt
    change anything: http://blogs.msdn.com/scottwoo/archive/2004/05/19/135453.aspx

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance,
    Anand

  • I'm having a similar installation error on an XP SP2 box and was getting the same error message (Creation of Adapter FILE Configuration Store entries failed. The SSO system is currently disabled.).  I checked and the Enterprise SSO application is not appearing in the list of services, and doing a command line "net start ENTSSO" returns an invalid service error.

     

    So going on the theory that SSO did not install correctly and get registered as a server, I went ahead and uninstalled BizTalk/SSO, blew away BTS/SSO databases, and tried to reinstall (selected all options for install).

     

    After BizTalk installed, I entered a local admin account and chose "Custom" installation.  Because the error message pointed at an SSO problem, I tried to apply the SSO configuration ONLY, using the default SSO Administrator/Affiliate Administrator accounts with the default admin account, but it keeps failiing at the same point in the install log when it tries to start SSO (see log below).

     

    [10:30:51 AM Info ConfigHelper]  Creating service: ENTSSO, start type: 2, exe: "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Enterprise Single Sign-On\ENTSSO.exe", dependencies: RPCSS,COMSysApp,MSSQLSERVER, account: .\bizservice
    [10:30:51 AM Info ConfigHelper] bizservice is a local entity.
    [10:30:52 AM Info ConfigHelper]  Created service: ENTSSO
    [10:30:52 AM Info SSOServerCfg] (ssoconfigobj2.cpp:7370) CSSOServerCfg::ConfigureSCP
    [10:30:52 AM Info SSOServerCfg] (ssoconfigobj2.cpp:7445) NetScheduleJobAdd: nRc = 00000000, dwJobId = 1
    [10:30:52 AM Info SSOServerCfg] (ssoconfigobj2.cpp:5697) CSSOServerCfg:Tongue TiedtartService
    [10:30:52 AM Info SSOServerCfg] (ssoconfigobj2.cpp:5721) The SSO service is starting.
    [10:30:52 AM Info SSOServerCfg] (ssoconfigobj2.cpp:5852) ENTER: CSSOServerCfg::WaitServiceState
    [10:30:52 AM Info SSOServerCfg] (ssoconfigobj2.cpp:5892) The SSO service state is: The service is starting (SERVICE_START_PENDING)
    [10:30:53 AM Info SSOServerCfg] (ssoconfigobj2.cpp:5892) The SSO service state is: The service is not running (SERVICE_STOPPED)

     

    The SSO database does get created, but the SSO Administrators and SSO Affiliate Administrators local groups do not.

     

    So my theory here is that for some reason SSO cannot start, the exception is caught and the app rolls back.

     

    Any ideas?

  • This really sounds like a permissions issue - are you running with Administrator while installing BizTalk?

     

    Also, try using the SSO Config tool at http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/BTS2006Scripts/Release/ProjectReleases.aspx?ReleaseId=244. This tool should help you identify what is there and give you some clues about what needs to be done next. If you use this tool, post its output log on this message thread to give us a better idea of what you are seeing.

     

    Thanks,

  • For me, yes the account was in the local admins group.  I'll give the tool a shot.

  • Hi,
    I'm having a similar installation error on an XP SP2 box and was getting error message (Creation of Adapter FILE Configuration Store entries failed. No context object MTS.). The SSO service run correctly but in COM+ Component Administration Console there isn't the ENT SSO Application, so I conclude that the ENT SSO was bad installed. It's hard to fix this error because in the log installation file there isn't anything about and also the service SSorun correctly. 
    After more and more time I fix this error uninstalling BizTalk Server and the Ent SSO and reinstalling all by BizTalk installation.

  • Hi,
    We are having the same problem with BizTalk 2009 and SQL 2008 on diffrent serveres. Both using Windows 2008. Configuring SSO and Group was succes, but when we try to configure Runtime we get the error:

    TITLE: Microsoft BizTalk Server 2009 Configuration Wizard
    ------------------------------

    Creation of Adapter FILE Configuration Store entries failed.
    Could not import a DTC transaction. Please check that MSDTC is configured correctly for remote operation. See the event log (on computer 'SDS-BIZTLKDB-11') for more details.

    We have been going through the MSDTC settings on both servers and we think that they are correct.

    Does anyone have a solution to this issue?

  • Hi,

    Did you try DTCPing and DTCTester tools? Also is firewall open between machines?

  • Hi,
    Thanks.

    We tried DTCTester with success, but we still get the message above when we try to configure runtime.

  • Hi,

    How about DTCPing did you try that also. And the firewal sure it is open for DTC traffic?

    The settings for DTC should be something like:

    enable network Access 
    enable allow remote administration
    enable allow remote clients 
    enable allow outbound
    enable allow inbound

    For authentication try No Authentication first. If it works you can try a more strict authentication scheme.

    Is the DTC service started on both machines?

  • Hi again,
    It worked after a restart of both BizTalk and SQL server. Maybe some of my settings needed the restart.

    Thanks for your tips.

  • FYI

    If you are facing this for 2009,2010 environments, you might be facing it cause of the different binaries for SSO.

    Basically , you might have installed this hotfix in one of your environment.

    (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2688226)

    In case, it is installed lets say in BizTalk node, Please install this in your SQL node and restart the server.

    Hopefully your issue will be resolved.

    Cheers
