Test connection from Sharepoint Administration page failed with org.xml.sax.SAXException: Fatal Error: URI=null Line=-1: Premature end of file. in the admin console. The atlassian-confluence.log file contains the following stack trace:


<confluence install>/confluence/WEB-INF/classes/client-config.wsdd failed to be created. You may see that the file is empty – it should be approximately 446 bytes, not zero length. This file is a configuration file required for Confluence to connect to Sharepoint as it enables SOAP calls to SharePoint. The plugin tries to create this file but in some cases it fails possibly because the user Confluence is running under does not have write permissions on that directory.
