Error : BCS service is not associated with web application


I was trying to create external content type using SharePoint Designer and got error message after installation of beta 2 and can not create external content type using SPD.



1)   Start BCS service on server farm if it is stopped. [SharePoint Central Administration -> Services on Server]

2)   Now you will need to create BCS service for your web application.

[SharePoint Central Administration -> Application Management -> Manage Service Application -> Create New BCS Service.]

3)       Now check it through SharePoint Designer, It should work.

Hope this will help.

  1. Considerably, the article is in reality the sweetest topic on the best registry cleaner in 2009. I agree with your conclusions and will thirstily look forward to your incoming updates. Just saying thanks will not just be adequate, for the wonderful clarity in your writing. I will immediately grab your rss feed to stay abreast of any updates.

  2. Greetings – thanks for this intrigiuing posting. Please forgive this, my English is not so good. Spanish is my native tongue but I am trying to learn getting down English. Regards!

  3. Nice Post, but it doesn’t work for me, i have configured mixed mode in my sharepoint site (classic and fba), when i create a new site whit classic mode it works (from SPD – External Content Type) some help will be appreciated.
