Had to post the BizTalk 2013 question in BizTalk 2010 forum as there is not forum yet for BizTalk 2013.


I'm trying to configure ESB ToolKit 2.2 using ESBConfigurationTool.exe and when I open the tool, I get the following error.

"Object reference not set to an instance of an object"


 ESBConfigurationTool.log shows following error:

EsbConfigurationTool.exe Error: 0 : An error has occurred:
Unknown error (0x80005000)
Stack Trace:
   at System.DirectoryServices.DirectoryEntry.Bind(Boolean throwIfFail)
   at System.DirectoryServices.DirectoryEntry.Bind()
   at System.DirectoryServices.DirectoryEntry.RefreshCache()
   at EsbConfigurationTool.Helper.GetWebSites()


If I ignore the error, the Web Site drop down box in the configuration tool is not populated and its not able to continue with the configuration.


My environment is:

ESB ToolKit 2.2

BizTalk 2013

SQL Server 2012

Windows Server 2012 (IIS 8.0)


Any help is appreciated.
