Known Issues

When directly updating the portal from the September 2010 version to the December 2010 version, you get an error message.

  • Issue: When directly updating the portal from the September 2010 version to the December 2010 version, you get the error message “Microsoft Office Live Meeting Service Portal setup ended prematurely because of an error. Your system has not been modified. You need to restart the installer and try again.” Also, the portal may exist in Add/Remove Programs but the registry entry, the shortcut in the start menu, and the Internet Explorer Favorite are removed.
  • Resolution: Click Close on the error message to stop the installation. Manually remove the existing version (September 2010) of the portal, and then install the December 2010 version again.

When trying to configure the portal from the Configure Portal shortcut the user receives the error message “Portal Administration Access Denied – You are not authorized to administer the Live Meeting Service Portal”

  • Issue: When a user logs in to the portal machine with a domain user account that is in the portal machine’s administrators group, and then tries to configure the portal from the “Configure Portal” shortcut in the start menu, this error message will occur and the user will not be able to configure the portal.
  • Resolution: Logon to the portal with a local administrator account, right-click “Internet Explorer”, and select “Run as administrator” from the popup menu. Browse to https://localhost/LMPortal/Settings.aspx to configure the portal (assuming the portal’s virtual directory name is “LMPortal”).

Changing a user's mail attribute in Active Directory causes the user account to become disassociated from the Live Meeting user account

  • Issue: Changing a user's mail attribute in Active Directory® Domain Services causes the user account to become disassociated from the existing Live Meeting user account. The user sees the error message, “Account does not exist.” When they go to the user creation page, they see the error message, “Account already exists.”
  • Resolution: The user's e-mail property must be changed in Live Meeting to match the new value.

Changes on the Settings page (settings.aspx) write all of the configuration fields on the page to the configuration

  • Issue: When you change any setting on the Settings page (settings.aspx), all of the configuration fields on the page are written to the configuration. If the password for the Conference Center Admin is left blank, the configuration changes so that the administrator password is null. This results in the following error:
  • Exception_1034: The 'HttpPostXML' call returned a fault (Fault Code=Client.Authentication, Fault String=login failed, URL=https://www123.livemeeting.com/cc/_XML/contoso/xml/4.0);
  • Resolution: When making any changes on the Settings page, always fill in the password fields.

User does not receive the e-mail Welcome Kit from the Live Meeting service

  • Issue: When a new Live Meeting user account is created using the Portal, the user does not receive the e-mail Welcome Kit from the Live Meeting service. The intent of the Welcome Kit is to provide the user name and password of the newly created Live Meeting account to the user for which they were created. The purpose of the portal is to provide authentication so that the user does not need to know their user name or password for the Live Meeting service. This behavior is by design.
  • Resolution: If you want users to receive information about their Live Meeting accounts, you should compose and send an e-mail message manually.
