completed with 87

“HttpSetServiceConfiguration completed with 87.”


Super helpful Microsoft.

Trying to set a url acl so somebody can bind a port. It’s on Server 2003, so I had to install the support tools to make httpcfg.exe available. I’ve been beating my head against the wall just long enough for the white paint to start to stain with my blood. The word completed might make one thing that the command was successful, but of course that is not the case.

It finally dawned on me that I had typed http://+:1234, and I didn’t follow up 1234 with a forward slash.

Perhaps, instead of “HttpSetServiceConfiguration completed with 87,” we could say something like “Hey, you dumb shit, your command DID NOT COMPLETE because you fucked something up.”

Or something.
