The topology service is not available in the farm


  • Hi Everyone. As mentioned in the title, I'm having some trouble with the topology service. When I attempt to create a new SQL Server Reporting Services service application I get the "The topology service is not available in the farm" error message.

    Both the Application Discovery and Load Balancer Service Application service and its proxy are started, and the Topology web service is available within IIS. 

    Any ideas? Many thanks.

  • Hi Scarekrow76,

    Please check the ULS logs for finding more message about this issue.

    If you get a Correlation Id in the error message, search the log message in the ULS log based on the Correlation Id.

    For SharePoint 2013, the default path of ULS log files is: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\15\LOGS.

    Best Regards,

    Linda Zhang
