Need help publishing MDS from VS to Bes

Greetings: I have worked though the demo apps and can published them fine to the local host.

My next step was to see them work on the production server but I am having some difficulties understanding how to modify the visual studios publishing setup.


Our Bes server is Lotus

Inside the explorer view I can see https://host:7443/mds-admin (I believe this is called MDS Integration services - Status normal) and underneath that I can see :

applications installed

application registry

monitory messages


Inside the explorer I can also see an Mds_cs(connnection service and it's status is running)


So I also read some posts and see you can configure the publishing side of the vs studio plugin under tools options bb -> Application Registry and File Repositories

I am confused at where on the bes do you setup the application registry host, port number, username, and password and the same for the file repository ? I have been all over the settings and I am stumped.


One other strange thing to note when I paste this url into my browser

https://hostexample.com:7443/mds-admin it does not work


This url does return some xml.



Any help is greatly appreciated. :smileyhappy:

Re: Need help publishing MDS from VS to Bes

I found the answer In another thread.

Visual Studio uses a different default port then the prodcution environment.


VS default uses port 17080 and the bes is listening on 7080.
