After server reboot: Operation can only be performed on a farm joined server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello.

    I have been struggeling a bit with a SharePoint server lately and not yet found a solution to the problem. How and when this started is also a bit vague, but problem occures if we reboot the server. After a reboot we get the error messsage described under, and we have to revert the virtual server back from a snapshot taken months ago. When snapshot is ready the server works normal again until we reboot it.

    Either Central Administration or any of the site collections will start and the error message is as follows:

    What I have tried so far to solve the problem:

    • Run the Configuration Wizard again on the server, but after I run that the same error occures.
    • Double checked that any of the accounts used in the SharePoint environment did not have any expired password limit. Every account is set to 'never expires'.
    • Set password manuel on managed account through central administration ref. this articles solution: https://sharepointumar.wordpress.com/tag/event-id-1309/
    • Gone through SQL permissions and everything seems to be in order. Compared with another installation that works.

  • I have now manged to resolve this issue by adding 2 registry values on the server:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\.NETFramework’, create a new ‘DWORD (32-bit) Value’ named "LoaderOptimization" with a value .

    ‘HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\.NETFramework‘, create a new ‘DWORD (32-bit) Value’ named "LoaderOptimization" with a value 1.

    Go to start -> run -> services.msc -> restart "SQL Server (MSSQLSERVER)" service and  "SQL Server Agent(MSSQLSERVER)" service.

  • Hello and thank you for your answer. That has been tried, even tried to restart the whole SQL server, does not help.

  • Hi M_Larsen,

    This error occurs when the SharePoint farm administrator cannot connect to your configuration database. Please verify the followings:

    1. Make sure that from the SharePoint front end and application servers that you can ping your SQL server.
    2. Make sure that your Farm account has permission to the configuration database.
    3. Lastly verify that your database didn't for some reasons go into recovery mode.


    Besides, Check the ULS log  to determine the exact cause of the error. ULS log is at:      

    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\15\LOGS

    Best Regards,
