Product: MapPoint Location Server
Event ID: 4
Source: Microsoft MapPoint Location Server
Version: 1.0.0.0
Message: The ServiceCulture setting in the Web.config file is either missing or not valid.
   
Explanation
The ServiceCulture setting is used as the default culture if user requests do not supply a culture. This setting affects calls to MapPoint Web Service in addition to units of measure (kilometers or miles). The service culture is set during installation. The default language is U.S. English (en-us).
   
User Action
Add the appropriate value for ServiceCulture in the AppSettings section of the Web.config file. The default location for the Web.config file is C:\Program Files\Microsoft MapPoint Location Server\MMLS\Web Service\Web.config. Values for ServiceCulture can represent a language only, such as “en” for World English, or a language and region, such as “en-us” for U.S. English. The language code is a two-letter code derived from International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 639-1, and the region code is a two-letter code derived from ISO 3166. For more information about ISO 639-1 language codes, see http://www.geo-guide.de/info/tools/languagecode.html, and http://www.iso.org/iso/en/prods-services/iso3166ma/02iso-3166-code-lists/list-en1.html.

The Web service cannot make an SSL connection to the MapPoint Location Server database.

Details
Product: MapPoint Location Server
Event ID: 16
Source: Microsoft MapPoint Location Server
Version: 1.0.0.0
Message: The Web service cannot make an SSL connection to the MapPoint Location Server database.
   
Explanation
Certain communications between MapPoint Location Server Web Service and the MapPoint Location Server database take place over SSL. MapPoint Location Server requires that a valid 128-bit SSL certificate be installed on both the computer running MapPoint Location Server Web Service and the computer running the MapPoint Location Server database.
   
User Action

Verify that the correct SSL certificates are installed. For information about generating a 128-bit SSL certificate, see the Microsoft Knowledge Base article, “Generating a Certificate Request File Using the Certificate Wizard in IIS 5.0” (http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;228821). For more information about enabling SSL encryption on SQL Server, see, the Microsoft Knowledge Base article, “Enable SSL Encryption for SQL Server 2000 with Microsoft Management Console” (http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;316898).

Important This article contains incorrect instructions for specifying the friendly name of the SQL Server’s SSL certificate (Step 2d under “Steps to Use to Install a Certificate on a Server with Microsoft Management Console”). The friendly name must be set to the name of the computer running SQL Server; you cannot provide an arbitrary name or leave the name blank.

In addition, do not select Force protocol encryption on either the computer running MapPoint Location Server Web Service or the computer running SQL Server. This option forces the use of SSL for all connections between the two computers. MapPoint Location Server Web Service uses SSL selectively for sensitive queries and updates. Therefore, the MapPoint Location Server Web Service cannot run properly if Force protocol encryption is selected.

Event ID: 12
Source: Microsoft MapPoint Location Server
Version: 1.0.0.0
Message: A call to the notification provider failed.
   
Explanation
A call to a notification provider can fail for the following reasons:

  • The notification service provider threw an exception during the notification attempt.
  • The notification endpoint is not valid.
  • If a user requests to be notified when another user locates him or her, the location request is not fulfilled if the call to the notification provider fails.

   
User Action
Check the description that is appended to the message to determine the cause. If necessary, verify that the notification endpoint for the user is correct. In the MapPoint Location Server management console, expand the Users node, and in the details pane, double-click the user whose notification endpoint you want to check. The notification endpoint is listed on the Providers tab under Notification Settings.
