I have a .NET project to which i want to add a reference to my WCF service hosted on a different server. When I open my service in IE, it works fine:

https://alias.domain.com/ProjectName/MyService.svc?wsdl

Open in new window


But when I try to create a service reference using the above url, I cannot - getting "The document was understood, but it could not be processed"

Can anyone help?

Share your WSDL.

See if all XSD references in WSDL are valid from your client end.

Getting close.

The wsdl XML contains

schemaLocation="https://servername.subdomain.domain.com/ProjectName/MyService.svc?xsd=xsd0"

instead of being

https://aliasname.sys.domain.com/ProjectName/MyService.svc?xsd=xsd0


since the wsdl url is

https://aliasname.sys.domain.com/ProjectName/MyService.svc?wsdl

the actual schema shows up if I go to https://aliasname.sys.domain.com/ProjectName/MyService.svc?xsd=xsd0

while https://servername.subdomain.domain.com/ProjectName/MyService.svc?xsd=xsd0 gives an error "page cannot be displayed".

Why would it put an actual server name and subdomain instead of alias?
