There are no addresses available for this application

I got the following error after creating and trying to manage a Business Data Connectivity Service on SharePoint 2010

There are no addresses available for this application.

All I needed to do was start the Business Data Connectivity Service in Manage services …. doh!!

Unable to authenticate Outlook to Office 365

I had a strange issue with Outlook continually prompting me to authenticate after setting up our federated domain to office 365.

The scenario would occur on all machines trying to connect to the Office 365 Exchange even after attempting a manual configuration via Outlook

I finally found out that my ADFS proxy server required a Trusted SSL and a Self-Signed Cert just won’t do.

I recommended using Trustico 30 day free SSL first to ensure that this in fact is the issue before shelling out to buy an expensive cert.
