Unable to Import profiles from AD

Finally made time to look at the Tech Preview (renewed excitement after SPC) and have been having issues with the “People” service app.

I can connect to AD and enumerate the OU’s:




But cannot get the profiles imported, looking in the logging (using SMS Trace – a tool I’ve been using for years for log file viewing after being introduced to it by Jeff Tremaine at Microsoft) I find the following error:

I’m still not entirely comfortable with the move to WCF as being more IT Pro than Dev I would rather be able to look in IIS and see what’s going on, would certainly be easier to troubleshoot this particular issue ;)

Anyway, I’ve tried getting the WSDL by accessing the URL in IE, no joy. So I thought I’d check if there is something listening on 5725 (port referenced in error above).

These next steps took me back ;)


Ran: netstat -ano |find /i "listening" and netstat -ano |find /i "established"


Nothing is listening on 5725, no wonder I’m seeing error 10061.


I guess you’re hoping for the solution to appear next…


Sorry, not yet. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to make any progress beyond this point, but will update this post as soon as I have…


I have already:


  • Disabled Windows Firewall
  • Asked my good friend Google


Next I’m off to the Beta forums ;)
