Batch Web Services not working
I have a site using Batch Manager on 800xA Version 5.1 FP4. We would like to start using the Simple Batch and Parameter management functions which rely on the Batch Web Services. However, there seems to be a problem with the Batch Web Services.
- The Simple Batch Management Aspects cannot connect to the Batch Web Services
- Browsing to "http//localhost/BatchWebServices/BatchWebServices.asmx" on the Batch Server fails.
- Browsing to http//<batch_server>/BatchWebServices/BatchWebServices.asmx on any other machine also fails.
- Every time we try to open the batch web services, There is an error in the Windows Event Log from ASP.NET 2.0.50727.0 indicating that a fault occured "could not load system.security.authentication.ExtendedProtection.channelbinding"
Browsing around on the web indicates that this is an error typically caused by Microsoft hotfixes that can disturb the DotNet 3.5 SP1 framework. Most of the suggestions are to install a bunch of other hotfixes and repair DotNet. However, we dont have the 2 KB hotfixes installed that usually cause this problem. Obviously, I am reluctant to install patches or repair DotNet on a running batch server where we have no redundancy.
Has anyone else seen this (or similar) problem ? Any suggestions ?
