I know this is an older thread but I'm posting my solution in case it helps someone. I was getting a correlation ID with my error when accessing BDC Service Application in Central Admin. So, I ran the correlation ID against my ULS logs and found a lot of InfoPath runtime errors in my PRD logs. I compared by InfoPath settings against a staging farm where BDC Services was working. I found that in General Settings --> InfoPath Form Services --> Configure InfoPath Forms Services Web Service Proxy, there are two check boxes (Enable IPFS Web Service Proxy & Enabled IPFS Web Service Proxy user forms). In my working farm, I had neither box selected. In my farm with the error, both boxes were checked. After unchecking them my BDC service application error went away. I tested a lot of my forms and all of them appear to still be working with no complaints from users... yet. :)

  • In my case there was no InfoPath configuration.
