listeningUrl error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Every time I try to start the OCS Web Conferencing service on an OCS2007 computer I get the following error:

     

    Event Type: Error
    Event Source: OCS MCU Infrastructure
    Event Category: (1022)
    Event ID: 61031
    Date:  9/18/2008
    Time:  16:57:02
    User:  N/A
    Computer: ***********

    Description:
    Failed to start service for the following reasons Value cannot be null.
    Parameter name: listeningUrl

    For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

     

     

    I have not been able to find anything about the listeningUrl parameter that is supposedly set to null.  I get no other errors in any of the event logs.

     

    any information or lead as to what this parameter is or what this error really means would be appreciated.

  • That's because you install ocs in same computer before and not removed clearly, therefore the system may be getting confused and giving a Null value.

     

    Please check by adsiedit.msc:

     

    cn=LS AV MCU,cn=Microsoft,cn=servername,cn=computers,dc=..,dc=..

     

    attribute: msRTCSIP-MCUData

     

    You may see two value:

     

    MCUURL=https://oldserverfqdn:444/Liveserver/AVMCU

    MCUURL=https://serverfqdn:444/Liveserver/AVMCU

     

    Remove the old one.

    I would suggest you deactivate the role and activate it again. Or, run the create pool step and deploy using the exact same settings to overwrite your configuration.

  • That was it!  I inherited this system and did not realize OCS had been uninstalled and reinstalled before.  Once I removed the old setting I was able to start all the conferencing services without problem.

     

    Thanks!
