Microsoft Techdays’12 Webcasts

Recently i blogged here on the Microsoft Techdays’12 event that took place in Paris a few weeks ago.

If you missed it or could not attend all your sessions of interest, you can now watch them all on the event’s website.

That’s great material for us to learn a little bit more on the MS products and to gather real life feedbacks on them.

Finally, just a little bit of ad for the session I made back then 🙂 : it’s on MDS and  you can watch the video right here.

The session, that I will share with two colleagues of mine, will be a level 300 presentation about Master Data Services (MDS) and how MDS helps you to manage your master data :

[Master Data Services] “The http service located at xxx is too busy”

During the installation process of SQL Server 2012 RC0 / Master Data Services, you are asked to provide an administrator user account.

When connecting for the first time to the MDS web service via the new MDS Excel Add in for example, you may experience the following error : “The http service located at http://xxx is too busy”

The user account you entered earlier is used, among other things, to configure the default application pool that belongs to MDS. In particular, you may have noticed that you weren’t asked for the password. That’s exactly what’s missing.

Follow the following steps (from left to right) :

  1. Right click on you Computer icon on your desktop, choose “Manage”.
  2. Under “Services and Applications”, click on “Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager”.
  3. In the appearing pane, select “Application Pools”. Here you’ll find the “MDS Application Pool” application. Right click on it, and select “Advanced Settings”.
  4. Under “Process Model”, find the “Identity” property, click in the field and click on the “…” button. Choose “Set”. There you can enter the password.

Having spent 20 minutes to find out what was wrong, I thought it might help someone else to share my findings.

Microsoft Days 2011 : Data Quality for datawarehouse projects

Recently, a colleague of mine and I were asked to record a webcast for the Microsoft Days 2011 Event.

It’s a french Microsoft event that took place between the end of september and november in 7 cities across the country.

In order to offer more food for thoughts to their visitors, Microsoft is asking to some experts in their domain to participate to webcasts.

Our webcast was focusing on Data Quality and its importance for datawarehousing projects. During the webcast we demonstrated why/how Data Quality Services (DQS) and Master Data Services (MDS) can be used together to achieve better data quality in our projects.

For those of you who are speaking french, you can take a look at it here.

Some of our colleagues have registered another webcast on Sharepoint 2010 which you can watch here.
