unknown soap exception?


We're trying to use the soap adapter to send messaged from XI 2.0 into an external web service.

We receive an error message ADAPTER.UNKNOWN_SOAP_EXCEPTION, with the text "soap exception from an adapter".

Has anybody encountered this before? Any idea what we might be missing?

The test service itself works fine, and incoming soap messages also come through. Outgoing soap messages do not seem to reach the webservice itself at all.

The configuration file:

  1. Part 2 (ToWS): XMB clients to WS server ######

  1. The target URL for the web service, to which the adapter sends web service messages.


  1. The port and path where the adapter waits for XMB messages from clients.



  1. The default SOAPAction HTTP request header to the web Service server


Corresponding lines from log:

12:48:44 (3835): Request transport message received at 8240/myservice/xmb

12:48:44 (3836): Request message parsed

12:48:44 (3837): Response message serialized

12:48:44 (3838): Response transport message sent

    Hi Avihai,

    When you put the URL p://localhost/test/test.asmx

    in the internetbrowser, do you see the webservice navigator or any other page coming up? If you get an error, you should change the URL

    Kind regards,
