The endpoint was not found

Hello guys

Running PAD 2.16.

Since version 2.15 we have had this error popping up from time to time - totally random "There's an issue starting your desktop flow. Check for errors and try running it again. Error returned: "The endpoint was not found. There are no listeners connected for the endpoint. Check that your machine is online."

The process runs (unattended) and fails after some time, sometimes it actually completes in a normal way, but is marked as failed with the above error. (It can be any script failing with this error and running it again, it runs just fine)

I have tracked the issue down (I think) to this...


Any ideas?

I have created a ticket @ Microsoft, but it's kind of a slow process 😒

Nope, But as stated earlier, I have  a ticket @ Microsoft, and they have been snooping around in my logfiles and I am waiting for a response from them.

Still no solution, and it's getting pretty anoying...
Am I the only one that get this error?
I have Microsoft looking at the problem, but seems like they have no idea of what the problem is - yet.

Nah I get this error aswell. I'm wondering if it's perhaps my network dropping in and out. Going to try standard modem reset ip flush etc...

Hey Guys,

Started seeing same issue on my env, I somehow corelate with upgrade to from older PAD to

Did you manage to fix this?

I have been working with MS the last four months about this problem, and the tell us, that it's our system that disconnects every hour...
It's not, we have system checks every 5 seconds, very long session timeouts on the firewall (as a test) , and still no solution.
They did however tell me that they will come up with at solution....

Additionally, I am happy to inform you that work has started to make the Desktop Flows Cloud Orchestration resilient to such disruptions in connectivity.

These changes are not expected to be released before early July, and they should mitigate this type of issue.”

Got this from Microsoft this morning, and it looks like has solved our problem.

"I would like to inform you that the European deployment for the Cloud Orchestrator has been completed.

Hence may I ask if you could monitor the situation and let me know if the issue has been resolved?"

Do you happen to know what that means exactly? e.g. new features added to the portal or some 'behind-the-scene' code changes?

They have made the Desktop Flows Cloud Orchestration more resilient to disruptions in connectivity.
So it's a cloud thing 😊

Our problem is gone, an we are happy 😁
