SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • You have a computer that is running Microsoft BizTalk Server 2009 or BizTalk Server 2010.
  • You add the following configuration data for support of Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) to the <serviceBehaviors> element of the Machine.config file:
    <behavior name="WindowsAuthenticationBehavior"> <serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled="true"/> <serviceDebug includeExceptionDetailInFaults="false"/> <serviceCredentials> <windowsAuthentication includeWindowsGroups="true" allowAnonymousLogons="false"/> </serviceCredentials> <serviceAuthorization principalPermissionMode="UseWindowsGroups"/> </behavior>
    Note The Machine.config file is stored in the following folder:
    %Systemdrive%\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\CONFIG\
  • You create a WCF-based receive location in a BizTalk application.
  • You try to export the bindings of the receive location in BizTalk Server 2009 or BizTalk Server 2010 Administration Console.
In this scenario, the export fails, and you receive an error message that resembles the following:
There are multiple root elements. Line 1, position 49. (System.Xml)
After you receive this error message if you remove the configuration data in the <serviceBehaviors> element, the export still fails in additional export operations.

CAUSE

This issue occurs because of an error in the WCF-based adapter.
