Error when trying to debug orchestration in HAT: This remoting proxy has no channel sink which means either the server has no registered server channels that are listening

Posted: December 19, 2011  |  Categories: Administration BizTalk

I sometimes have the pleasure to make the bridge between Portuguese/Brazilian BizTalk community and “international” community and this is one of this opportunities.

In this BizTalk Forum thread, someone found the solution to his problem in one of BizTalk Brasil post wrote by Ruth Resende and asked to help translate for English.

This is the original post in English:

Problem

When trying to debug an orchestration in HAT (Health and Activity Tracking) the following message appears:

This remoting proxy has no channel sink wich means either the server has no registered server channels that are listening, or this application has no suitable client channel to talk to the server.. The instance may have been completed or terminated already.

HAT error

Cause

This error may occur because you may have referenced COM+ component inside your project.

Solution

Place the following tag inside the BTSNTSvc.exe.config file:

<system.runtime.remoting>
   <channelSinkProviders>
      <serverProviders>
         <provider id="sspi" type="Microsoft.BizTalk.XLANGs.BTXEngine.SecurityServerChannelSinkProvider, Microsoft.XLANGs.BizTalk.Engine" securityPackage="ntlm" authenticationLevel="packetPrivacy" />
      </serverProviders>
   </channelSinkProviders>

   <application>
      <channels>
         <channel ref="tcp" port="0" name="">
            <serverProviders>
               <provider ref="sspi" />
               <formatter ref="binary" typeFilterLevel="Full"/>
            </serverProviders>
         </channel>
      </channels>
   </application>
</system.runtime.remoting>

Important Note: the changes in this file are picked up when the host instance restarts. So for this to take effect you need to restart BizTalk host instance
