Orchestrator 2012: Value does not fall within the expected range

I was recently troubleshooting a problem with the Orchestrator 2012 Beta web service, and got the error message “Value does not fall within the expected range” when trying to start the web service IIS website from the IIS console.

It turns out that the TCP port binding did not get created, because I installed the Web Features directly from the MSI file (microsoft.systemcenter.orchestrator.webfeatures.msi), and not through Orchestrator setup. We see the missing port under the “Browse Web Site” section of the action pane.

To fix this issue, go into the “Bindings” and add a port definition. Once you’ve defined the port, you can start the website.
