MDS Configuration Manager says "The required .svc handler mappings are not installed in IIS.", but they're actually installed on IIS.

In the Microsoft.MasterDataServices.Configuration.Commands.GetMasterDataServicesIISPrerequisites.HandlerMappingsExist() method, it only checks for the .svc handler mappings for the first website in IIS:

ConfigurationElementCollection collection = manager.GetWebConfiguration(sites[0].Name).GetSection("system.webServer/handlers").GetCollection();

But in our web server, the first site in IIS is not MDS website, and it has all the unused handlers removed, so the MDS configuration manager thinks my IIS does not have .svc handler mappings.

I'm using IIS7.5. The MDS is from Denali RC0 build.

Matthew, the documentation you added looks good to me.

Hi Jason,

I’m doing some cleanup on outstanding Connect items, and wanted to close the loop with you on this one.

We’ve provided additional documentation related to this problem here:

This issues has been confirmed for SQL Server 2012 and fixed in RTM. The issue was identified on:

1. Workgroup machines.
2. Domain joined machine but the user who run the Config Manager is a local user (and not domain user).

The workaround will be do use domain joined machine and domain user when running the Config Manager.
