EBS Console and SCE Management Console Crash Due to Application Pool Settings

EBS Console and SCE Management Console Crash Due to Application Pool Settings

  • Comments 7

[Today’s post comes to us courtesy of Mark Stanfill]

The EBS Administration Console may crash if the IIS application pool default is configured to allow 32-bit applications.  The SCE console will also crash with a distinct error:

System.InvalidOperationException: Client found response content type of 'text/html; charset=utf-8', but expected 'text/xml'.

[followed by HTML output]

(Click on the screenshots above to view full-size image)

This is usually caused by modifying the application pool setting in order to install an application or install a hotfix.  To resolve this issue, run the following commands from an elevated command prompt:

%windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd set config -section:system.applicationHost/ApplicationPools  /applicationPoolDefaults.enable32bitapponWin64:"false" /commit:apphost

%windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd set apppool  /apppool.name:defaultapppool /enable32bitapponWin64:false

%windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd set apppool  /apppool.name:WsusPool /enable32bitapponWin64:false

iisreset

(The commands may wrap.  Copy and paste each to a single line)

  • PingBack from http://www.ditii.com/2009/05/16/troubleshooting-ebs-console-and-sce-management-console-crash-due-to-application-pool-settings/

  • This command doent work .

    C:\>%windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd set config -section:system.applicationHost/

    ApplicationPools/applicationPoolDefaults.enable32bitapponWin64:"false" /commit:a

    pphost

    ERROR ( message:Unknown config section "system.applicationHost/ApplicationPools/

    applicationPoolDefaults.enable32bitapponWin64:false".  Replace with ? for help.

  • Chris,

    There's actually a space before /applicationPoolDefaults.enable32bitapponWin64:"false".  I've edited the post with extra white space to make this more clear.

    %windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd set config -section:system.applicationHost/ApplicationPools   /applicationPoolDefaults.enable32bitapponWin64:"false" /commit:apphost

    Thanks,

    Mark

  • Hi Mark,

    Thanks for your reply,

    i did run the commands but the admin console still crashes.

    any othe ideas the i can try?

  • Chris,

    There are a few other things that can cause the console to crash.  Can you zip up your adminconsole.log and send it to me offline?

    Thanks,

    Mark

  • Hi Mark

    Did mail you the log file.

    seems to give this error in the log file

    "AdminConsole","Error","!!!!FATAL: Console shutting down due to unhandled exception: Value was either too large or too small for a UInt32."

    "AdminConsole","Error","System.OverflowException: Value was either too large or too small for a UInt32.

  • Did you get a fix for this? I also have identical errors as above:

    [23032],"2009/07/23 15:33:32.570","AdminConsole","Error","!!!!FATAL: Console shutting down due to unhandled exception: Value was either too large or too small for a UInt32."

    [23032],"2009/07/23 15:33:32.572","AdminConsole","Error","System.OverflowException: Value was either too large or too small for a UInt32.
