CRM 2011 DBPopulator issues with LoadBalancer RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to use the DBPopulator to performance test my CRM 2011 installation and am facing issues while using a load balancer.   My environment has 4 front-end servers.  When trying to run DBPopulator with 5 threads I am getting the following error.


    Secure channel cannot be opened because security negotiation with the remote endpoint has failed. This may be due to absent or incorrectly specified EndpointIdentity in the EndpointAddress used to create the channel. Please verify the EndpointIdentity specified or implied by the EndpointAddress correctly identifies the remote endpoint.  ---> System.ServiceModel.FaultException: The request for security token has invalid or malformed elements.

    This error is coming from the discovery service calls.

    If I shutdown IIS on 3 of the front-end servers I do not get this error.
    If I bypass the loadbalancer (http://CRMSTAGE.COM) and run directly against the server (http://Server1) I do not get this error.

    Currently the load balancer is not configured for session affinity (Clinet IP or Cookie)

    Has anyone see this issue? Seems like a bindings issue but I am not sure how to proceed.
