Registration Wizard stuck at SharePoint Service Broker step

The Registration Wizard seems to be stuck at the SharePoint Service Broker step.



While this is typical of a web application with a lot of sites, this may also indicate errors from SharePoint.

Troubleshooting Steps

Please use one of the options below to resolve this issue:

  1. Resolve SharePoint-related Errors

    Review the host server logs for any errors related to SharePoint while the Registration Wizard is running. Below is a common example of an error you may encounter:  

    "SharePointRoleProvider.GetContainers: System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException: An unexpected failure was encountered when contacting SharePoint to get information from the group provider [Group Provider]: The SharePoint server has indicated that the web service could not be found. Consider updating the group provider configuration. ---> System.Net.WebException: The remote server returned an error: (404) Not Found."

    As a workaround for this error, you may temporarily remove the [Group Provider] from the K2 Management Site. If you are on a version earlier than K2 blackpearl 4.7,  you may refer to the following article for instructions on how to delete a SharePoint Group Provider.

  2. Increase the executionTimeout value in the Smartforms Runtime web.config

    The default value is 320 seconds. You may increase this value to complete the Registration Wizard.

    <httpRuntime maxRequestLength="16384" requestValidationMode="2.0" enableVersionHeader="false" sendCacheControlHeader="false" executionTimeout="320" />
