After installing the recent Service Pack 1 (for K2) update to my SharePoint + K2 Virtual Machine, I was having troubles loading the “SharePoint” site.
I’ll admit now that’s it’s a dumb mistake (as described ahead) – but got me stuck for 1/2 hour or more – and wanted to let folk know.
When trying to view the MOSS site, all that was displayed is “Service Unavailable”.
I made sure to do an IISRESET – and then re-booted the server. And checked within the Event Viewer for anything wrong – and couldn’t see anything interesting.
Within IIS Admin, there are security settings which are changed for the new SP1 K2 server, but supposedly just for a distributed environment. So – checked that, and App.Pool Identity.
It was only then that I noticed something TINY …>
Here’s a zoomed-in view :
*DOH* The App.Pool isn’t running !! Jeez – is it just me, or is that hard to notice ?? (red icon)
Right-click, and Start – and all OK – SharePoint working ! *yay*
Having said that – I should have noticed this when viewing “Properties” of the App.Pool !!
So – lesson learned – if seeing “Service Unavailable” – check the App.Pool !
And, too many bourbons on a Sat.night make you unable to differentiate colour (red/green).
