Tag Archives: A Correlation Set Can Be initialized Only Once

Error : There was an error when trying to connect. Do you want to retype your credentials and try again?

You may bump into this error while configuration UDDI service post installing and configuring BizTalk 2013 R2. Also this error will pop up during adapter pack installation. This error will also result in loosing your IIS settings .
Failed to connect
There was an error when trying to connect. Do you want to retype your credentials and try again?
Filename: C:\Windows\system32\inetsrv\config\schema\Microsoft.Adapters.SAP_schema.xml
Line number: 1
Error: Configuration file is not well-formed XML
Yes No
IIS error

Most likely is a installation glitch. The error is self explanatory in this case. Please go ahead and check the path “C:\Windows\system32\inetsrv\config\schema\” and notices the xml file sixe was 0 KB.


Next open the BizTalk installation ISO file and look for the xml in the following location:
F:\BizTalk Server\AdapterPack_x64\Program Files\Microsoft BizTalk Adapter Pack(x64)\IIS Schemas
Copy over this file to the missing one.

Next type IISRESET in the search box of Windows server 2013 R2 and complete your IIS reset. Go ahead and retry configuring UDDI and installing BizTalk adapter pack and it should be successful.



BizTalk Error “A Correlation Set Can Be initialized Only Once” : An alternative solution

So you bumped into this error while compiling your BizTalk project. The most obvious reason could be : You have a correlation set set initialized on more than one places by mistake.

Now here is the tricky part: What if you have initialized it only once but still you are getting this error. What could be wrong.

Here are the possible reason:
You are using a long running transaction loop (For example in the resume pattern : and have initialized this correlation set in there ONCE :-). You see, even thou it is initialized once at run time it may be called more than one time, thus explaining the error.

You need to define your correlation set in a non long running scope contained within your long running scope and that will fix the problem for you.

Let me know if you have questions.
