    Hi, I am setting up system diagnostics for one of our AX environment.

    Steps for creating a certificate, upload it to LCS and installation of 'Microsoft Dynamics Lifecycle Services Diagnostic Service – Discovery' was all good. However, when I tried to open Discovery app to initiate collector, I am getting following error

    Failed to Invoke Diagnostic External Services: There was no endpoint listening at diagservice.lcs.dynamics.com/externalservices.svc that could accept the message. This is often caused by an incorrect address or SOAP action. See InnerException, if present, for more details.

    Dynamics AX 2012 R3

    Installing on AOS server + Providing credentials of AOS service account to make sure no permission issue.

    I have created a project in LCS and am trying to use Rapid Start.  When navigating to the Rapid Start Setup and selecting a data centre and selecting "Connect", I get a message as follows – "We're Sorry, something went wrong while your project was being provisioned.  Please try again later or contact support."  I am using Western Europe data centre.  Please could you let me know if I may have done something incorrectly or what the issue could be.
