    6. Known Issues

    Error 1:

    While adding Office 365 tenant: Operation failed.The binding at system.serviceModel/bindings/basicHttpBinding does not have a configured binding named 'bHttpBinding'. This is an invalid value for bindingConfiguration. (C:\Program Files\Control Server\web.config line 462)

    Solution: You have to add following line:

    <binding name="bHttpBinding" closeTimeout="00:10:00" openTimeout="00:20:00"
              receiveTimeout="00:20:00" sendTimeout="00:20:00" bypassProxyOnLocal="true"
              maxReceivedMessageSize="104857600" />

    before following in web.config:

    <binding name="bHttpBinding_CyberSource" 

    Error 2:

    Operation Failed. Details: 50808-Cannot open backup device 'C:\inetpub\\backups\newsql16_2_9_2016_11_05_55_PM.bak'.Operating system error 5(Access is denied.). BACKUP DATABASE is terminating abnormally.


    If database backup is failed due to permission on directory, then open “Services” and check user Log on name of “SQL Server” service. This user must have permissions on backup directory.

    Give full access right of this user on backup directory will fix the issue.
