Https for SiteUrl

Sep 6, 2009 at 7:33 PM

My site uses HTTPS so I get an error System.ServiceModel.Security.MessageSecurityExceptio: The HTTP request is unauthorised with client authentication schems 'Ntlm'

I do not see a way to tell the domain\user and password or anything like that

So I can I use the SharePoint Source and destination?

The tool works with HTTPS.  If you get that error, there is another thread on this as well.  I've seen a workaround (not sure why it does this) where the Host Header on the IIS box throws it for a loop for some reason.  The workaround is to not use the Host name in the URL, but the server name + port.  Try that and see if it works.

It's already using your NTLM credentials of the executing user - so that is not the problem, it's sort of a bad error message from WCF where it gets confused or something.  I haven't been able to find out why.

The only SP sites I use in production are SSL sites, so I know it works with SSL.

Try adding a http:// in front of that.

Now it is asking to increase the timeout (after 59 seconds) where do you do that?

Hm, you shouldn't have to do that.  If you enter that exact URL into the Browser, I assume it brings up your site?  Try appending this to your site url: 


If you get a webservice page, then your root url (before the first slash above) is what needs to go in the config.

I have tried the workaround with the server name, but it is unfortunately refusing the connection.
