Troubleshooting FIM 2010: WebServices MA - Failed to Update Discovery

Troubleshooting FIM 2010: WebServices MA - Failed to Update Discovery


OVERVIEW / PURPOSE / GOAL

My goal of this wiki is to provide knowledge and informaiton on the WebServices Connector for FIM 2010.  This particular wiki is going to cover information on the Web Services Configuration Tool, and an error that was encountered, and what was done to troubleshoot it, and what the resolution was here.

PROBLEM STATEMENT

In this case we were attempting to create a new configuration file to connect to the PeopleSoft 9.1 web service.  We enter the address information into the Web Service window, as well as the user information on the second screen and then click next to initiate the discovery of the web service.  During the discovery, we receive an error stating "Failed to Update Discovery". 

TROUBLESHOOTING

To troubleshoot the issue we enabled verbose logging on the WebServices Connector for FIM 2010

CAUSE

Discovered that the default port 80 was not being used.

RESOLUTION

Added the correct port to the address information, and everything worked successfully.

Here is an illustration ( sample ) of what it should look like with the port number.
