Solution: Recycle IIS Application pool: The local SharePoint server is not available

When I investigate further on this issue, I realized that the web application is not running in IIS. As part windows server OS regular updates IT team rebooted the server but some of the web applications were not started.

Follow the below steps to fix this issue:

  1. Open the IIS (Internet Information Services) (Click on Windows + R -> inetmgr)
  2. Identify the particular SharePoint web application
  3. Right-click on the SharePoint web application and start it

This resolved my issue and I was able to deploy the solution seamlessly. The error Recycle IIS Application pool: The local SharePoint server is not available will not come.
