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?

  • @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

In reference to your question,

Delete the service from central administration and recreate it.

This will re provision what you require.


  • I have the same issue but this comes in SharePoint 2016. and re-creation of service is not working in my case. Aug 13, 2017 at 10:02
