HELP! Missing SharePoint Web Services IIS site! RRS feed

  • Question

  • I accidentally deleted the SharePoint Web Services site in IIS today!  Ugh!!!

    It's been a very long week and now I have no idea what to do!!

    Immediately I started receiving errors - Access Web Databases no longer hosting, Security Token Service no longer available, etc.

    Am I in big trouble??  I would appreciate someone's expertise!

  • Next bet is to re enter your license key followed by psconfigui again.

  • Have you tried rerunning psconfigui.exe?

  • I just ran it and no change that I can see.

    I still have the SharePoint Web Services Application Pool in IIS, but not the site.

  • What about a repair on the install?  Or, if you can figure out the port(s) it was running on the path should be "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\WebServices\Root"

  • Looks like the ports on 2 of my servers have the same settings:

    http 32843 *

    https 32844 *

    net.tcp 32845:*

    net.pipe *

    good luck

  • In my WebServices folder I have the bdc, securestore, securitytoken, subscription settings and topology folders, as well as the Rootweb.config XML file.

    I don't know the ports, and I haven't tried a repair, because I'm not sure what exactly running the setup with the repair option will affect.  I'm just nervous that I will do more damage tonight!

    What should I do first?

    I'm quite a beginner - only 2 months with SharePoint, so I definitely need help  - step by step if possible!

  • Tried a repair and that only made it worse.  I think this issue is now independent of the first issue.

    Now I'm getting "The trial period for this product has expired." messages when I try and access a site collection.  This error shouldn't apply to me and yet I'm getting these messages.

    The web apps are still there, the content databases also, the accounts are all correct, and it even asks me to log on when I try and access a site collection through the web, but then gives me the error message.

    I'm sure it's probably something I need to reset!

     

    Help!!

  • run psconfigui again. The trial period error is quite common.

  • Ran it again - no change.

    I'm still getting expired messages for no reason.

    I'm able to log onto Central Admin without issue. I'm able to see all the same settings I had for my web app pools, iis sites and sharepoint service accounts.  Nothing has changed in terms of accounts, site collections, ports, web app pools, etc.

    My initial problem was that I tried to extend a site collection and then when it didn't work as I wanted, I deleted it, but instead of deleting the proper IIS site, I deleted the wrong site - the Web Services Site in IIS (through Central Admin Manage Web Apps).  I'm anticipating a huge problem with this, but aside from that - I should still be able to access my site collections.

    But I keep getting that error....

    Any suggestions??
