I have been chasing up an error and am struggling to resolve.
I can browse my SharePoint site fine the only issue is Excel web app features do no display correct that's apparent to users
However in Central Admin I have noticed a few things. Application management -> Manage Service Applications
if i click on the User profile service application is returns an error saying - Something went wrong - ULS shows
Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.UserProfileApplicationNotAvailableException: UserProfileApplicationNotAvailableException_Logging :: UserProfileApplicationProxy.ApplicationProperties ProfilePropertyCache does not have 3b7bec6d-5d0d-4d36-8deb-1f575a4d4248
the UPS proxy wont start either i have tried - removing it and also re-provisioning it via powershell. But still no luck.
When I click on the "managed metadata Service" which is linked to the UPS (is it not?) it displays
The managed metadata service or connection is currently not available, The application pool or managed metadata web service may not have been started please contact your administrator
When I check the ULS logs there's error
Failed to get term store for Proxy 'Managed Metadata Service'"............ "The URL Format was invalid
Finally I get in windows event viewer 8306 claim authentication errors -
An exception occurred when trying to issue security token, The URL format was invalid
What can I try to resolve these issues? I am assuming there all caused by a common problem "the URL format", however my knowledge is limited.
