If you see error after installing Sitecore 9 –

baseAddress should not be null. Parameter name: baseAddress error

This error comes when xDB is enabled and if connectionstring for database aren’t set. Either install xDB or disable xDB.


To disable xDB change following in Sitecore.Xdb.config  file, can be found in Marketing.xDB  folder

<setting name=”Xdb.Enabled” value=”false” />
