WCF channel fault handling & Abandon a faulted message RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a problem when trying to Abandon a message whenever fault happens. The code snippet and error message are as below:

    Code snippet

    if (!ReceiveContext.TryGet(OperationContext.Current.IncomingMessageProperties, out receiveContext))


    Console.WriteLine("ReceiveContext not installed/found on this machine.");



    receiveContext.Faulted += new EventHandler(ReceiveContextFaulted);

    void ReceiveContextFaulted(object sender, EventArgs e)




           Log.Error("Receive Context Faulted.");



           catch (Exception)





    ERROR Message   

    callback threw an exception. Check the exception stack and inner exception to determine the callback that failed., Inner exception The receive context, Microsoft.ServiceBus.Messaging.Channels.ServiceBusInputChannelBase`1+AfmsReceiveContext[System.ServiceModel.Channels.IInputChannel], cannot be used for sending delayed acks because it is in the Faulted state.


    1. Whenever fault happens,      how to Abandon a message?
    2. What is the best mechanism      to handle this scenario?

    Thank you!
