Orchestrator Web Console 2012 R2: HTTP Error 404.17 – Not Found

July 16, 2013 at 2:51 pm in Orchestrator by Christopher Keyaert

Hi everyone,

I just installed a brand new Orchestrator 2012 R2 preview on a dedicated console and when I tried to launch the Web Console or to connect to the Web Service, I had the following error message :

HTTP Error 404.17 – Not Found. “The requested content appears to be script and will not be served by the static file handler.”

In fact, it’s due to missing roles/features on the server which is hosting Orchestrator installation.

Go to Add Roles and Features, and select ASP.NET 4.5 in Server Roles.


In Features, under .Net Framework 4.5 Features > WCF Services, select HTTP Activation.

When done, I’m not able to lunch the Orchestrator Web Console

And also connect Service Manager 2012 R2 to Orchestrator 2012 R2 Web Service.


I hope this help 😉
