I'm receiving this error on our SharePoint server in event viewer.
When I check the
Configure usage and health data collection I see
WSS_Logging_fd8d31dd9b964a649407b44127593673 as the database name. When I check the database the DB is listed as
WSS_Logging with no GUID attached to it.
If I try to
Enable usage data collection, or make any changes at all, I receive the error:
A Usage Application already exists in this farm
The service app does exist in the
Manage Service Applications page.
I'm thinking this may have become corrupt. Is there any downsides or repercussions to recreating this service?
