Need Help regarding certificate load and IDP metadata configuration

I am using Shibboleth 2.5 (64 bit) on window server 2008. I have configured the shibboleth2.xml file for certificate and metadata provider. When I am running shibd -check command or on checking shibd.log file, I am getting below error

C:\opt\shibboleth-sp\sbin64>shibd -check
2016-04-29 00:42:40 WARN Shibboleth.Application : insecure cookieProps setting,

2016-04-29 00:42:40 WARN Shibboleth.Application : no MetadataProvider available,

overall configuration is loadable, check console for non-fatal problems

My shibboleth2.xml configurations are:

            <SSO entityID=" ">

<MetadataProvider type="XML" uri=""
              backingFilePath="federation-metadata.xml" reloadInterval="7200">
            <MetadataFilter type="RequireValidUntil" maxValidityInterval="2419200"/>
            <MetadataFilter type="Signature" certificate="sci-cert.pem"/>
            <DiscoveryFilter type="Blacklist" matcher="EntityAttributes" trimTags="true"
              attributeValue="" />

This certificate file (sci-cert.pem) is available at this location. I am not sure why it is not able to load the certificate.
IDP has registered the SP metadata at their side still it is saying that metadataprovider not available.

Please help me out in this whether I am missing something in configuration.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks and Regards,
