Info about /licensing/Serverlocator.asmx RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all. I am trying to get some info about when the client contacts /licensing/servicelocator.asmx. I am troubleshooting a deployment and I have taken some traces with DebugView. I see the client contacting that service at the internal URL and the server responding with a 500 what makes the client to go to the ExternalURL. This happens when the client is inside the internal network. When trying to reproduce the situation in a test lab I am not able to make the client go to /licensing/servicelocator so I would like to know under which circunstances the client will query that service.

    Thanks in advance

  • Hi all. In case somebody finds the same situation. The error was due to servicelocator.asmx changed to anonymous authentication in IIS. Once we changed back to Windows Authentication the error disappeared. In cross forests topologies seems that only licensing.asmx has to be allowed for anonymous access.
