InvalidateCache on NetSqlAzMan MMC

I am using WCF Cache service to authorize access against operations in my application. The config file of my application has the following client endpoint section --

client>endpoint address="net.tcp://localhost:8000/NetSqlAzMan.Cache.Service/CacheService/" binding="netTcpBinding" bindingConfiguration="NetTcpBinding_ICacheService"  contract="wcf.ICacheService" 


name="NetTcpBinding_ICacheService">identity>userPrincipalName value="" />identity>endpoint>client>

Similarly, the cache service configuration file has the following section -

 <client> <endpoint address="net.tcp://localhost:8000/NetSqlAzMan.Cache.Service/CacheService/"
          binding="netTcpBinding" bindingConfiguration="NetTcpBinding_ICacheService1"  contract="wcf.ICacheService"
          name="NetTcpBinding_ICacheService"> <identity>  <userPrincipalName value="" /> </identity>    </endpoint>    </client>

I am able to consume this cache service in my application and I am also able to call InvalidateCache from my application.

 But when I try to call InvalidateCache from the NetSqlAzMan MMC , it gives me an exception. The details of exception are copied below -

Untrapper Console Error.

Could not find default endpoint element that references contract 'wcf.ICacheService' in the ServiceModel client configuration section. This might be because no configuration file was found for your application, or because no endpoint element matching this contract could be found in the client element.

I copied the configuration files (available in NetSqlAzMan source code) in the Sql AzMan's directory under Program Files and this resolved the issue.

The actual directory did not contained the required config file.
