  • Sounds like the web.config got messed up somehow. Is there one you can recover?
    hope that helps,

  • Are you using Server 2008 ?  If so check to make sure the firewall isn't blocking port 9810, if so see the following link http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc287748(office.12).aspx#sectionfirewall

  • Good Call SharePoint Ninja, I copied the web.config from my production env for CA to my dev CA and iisreset.  All seems normal now.

    Thanks

  • Yes Chris, however, could you take a look at

    http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/sharepoint2010programming/thread/0f9a3bb4-c01a-4ed4-8ece-59a5f192e88c

    and let me know if you have any thoughts on how to accomplish this task.  I am ready to go back to SPD because using an external list in a VS Workflow seems to be next to impossible.

    Thanks
