I was upgrading a server recently from Windows Server 2003 to Windows Server 2008. The Windows Server 2003 installation did not include UDDI service. UDDI services are installed by default in Windows Server 2008. Everything looks correct as long as you don’t attempt to use the UDDI services on the upgraded machine. The services look to be running correctly and no errors are sent to the Event Log, however UDDI will not function.
To resolve this issue it is necessary to reinstall UDDI services on the Windows Server 2008 installation. This only occurs when doing an upgrade from Windows Server 2003 and below that does not have UDDI services installed prior to the upgrade.
