Claims Provider Service Application Error (500)

leave a comment »

Hi all,

I have just created Sharepoint Web Application with Claims Authorisation provader using.

It’s at clear cloned virtual server instance with Sharepoint Foundation and Office Web Apps.

I renamed it using stsadm and reboot. All supposedly ok!

When I try to open created site – I got an error – Internal Server Error 500. 😦

Go to logs:

w3wp.exe (0x11EC)                        0x15D0 SharePoint Foundation          Claims Authentication          8306 Critical An exception occurred when trying to issue security token: The HTTP service located at http://localhost:32843/SecurityTokenServiceApplication/securitytoken.svc is too busy. . 0b1f4fdc-fe59-4d14-9603-8cbdf7c89da9

As a summary the resolution was in a single point: From the all above findings we can see that most of the service applications are failing.

Resolution was re-provision the Security Token Service application. Below PS script will do it !

PS C:\Users\aanikin> $sts = Get-SPServiceApplication | ?{$_ -match “Security”}
PS C:\Users\aanikin> $sts.Status
PS C:\Users\aanikin> $sts.Provision()

For all services re-provision use this:

PS C:\Users\aanikin> foreach($sts in Get-SPServiceApplication){$sts.Provision();}

As I think, we must do this for renamed server instance as well!
