When I click on 'Business Data Connectivity Services' link on 'Manage Service Application' page of Central Administration, I get the following error : "The load balancer is not provisioned. Verify the load balancer was provisioned successfully before retrieving endpoint addresses. " I got a solution from this link, but as per instruction I am unable to install the hotfix for SharePoint 2013. Is there any solution available for this problem? Thanks in advance

Have you tried deleting the service from central admin, and re-adding it? – Hugh Wood Oct 29 '12 at 8:15

@HughWood Can you please post your above comment as answer, I ran into the same issue today with SP2010, and "deleting the service from central admin, and re-adding it worked" for SP2010 – Diptarag Jan 31 '13 at 7:14

In reference to your question,

Delete the service from central administration and recreate it.

This will re provision what you require.
