SHAREPOINT 2010 SERVICES CRASHES POST WINDOWS OS UPGRADE


SharePoint 2010 Services crashes post windows OS Upgrade

Attempted to upgrade one of my development machines from Windows 2008 Server Standard server into Windows 2008 Server Standards R2

And got a slew of errors (but thank God for VM snapshots )

Here are the errors and the fix.

OWSTimer.exe Timer service crashing.

 

System.IO.FileNotFoundException Occurred in SPUCHostService.exe


System.IO.FileNotFoundException Occurred in SPUCWorkerProcessProxy.exe

 


 

System.IO.FileNotFoundException Occurred in WebAnalyticsService.exe


System.IO.FileNotFoundException Occurred in OWSTimer.exe

 

 


 

 

The PROBLEM:

It is mainly a version incompatibility with the Windows Identity Foundation

The SOLUTION:

You need to install this version, of Windows Identity framework ( the one that matches the new OS level)

Windows6.1-KB974405-x64 downloads from TechNet.

http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=17331

 

You can force install this package using the SharePoint ISO or deployment media , (rerun the Prerequisite installer)

 

And of course (REBOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT)

(If you have multiple Servers in the farm .you will need to do the same on each member server no matter what the role is .)

 

[Run the SharePoint Products Configuration wizard]

 


Also make sure you run the windows updates and install all the needed updates.

Best of luck.
