I needed a new Sharepoint Foundation 2010 server (on server 2008 R2 X64), so I cloned it to save time. It screwed up my production server. The clone worked, and I renamed the server, but it added extra App Pools and screwed up the Central admin link on my production server, and appears to have added new SQL databases on our separate SQL server (also 2008 R2 x64.)
The production sharepoint server still works and is accessible by users. However, the problem is that the services don't exist on our Sharepoint server anymore. When I go into Central Admin -> Application Management -> Manage service Apps, I can see them all in there and "Started"... but the Status are all greyed out. When I go to "manage services on server" and select ALL services for the Sharepoint's IP, there are NO services at all! These used to be there before the clone, and I had to go in there before to restart the Timer service, as our email alerts stopped working. So our email alerts aren't working (and don't know what else), but this time there is no service managed by the server for me to restart! I shut down and am not using the clone as it was a miserable failure, but am thinking it may have taken over these services.
I don't know how to get those services back on the production server. I tried to redo the configuration wizard, but it acted as if I wasn't part of the farm anymore, and I don't have the original sharepoint setup admin password.
It's been like this for a while now, and the only recurring errors I see in event log are
"The SharePoint 2010 Timer service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 3564 time(s). The following corrective action will be taken in 30000 milliseconds: Restart the service."
"The SharePoint 2010 Timer service terminated with service-specific error %%-2147467259."
Any guidance on how to fix would be GREATLY appreciated!
