In this article, I would like to discuss one of the SharePoint solution deployment issue using visual studio 2015. The error comes as Error occurred in deployment step ‘recycle iis application pool’: the local SharePoint server is not available. Check that the server is running and connected to the SharePoint farm.
As part of my daily development, I was trying to deploy my SharePoint FARM solution using the Visual Studio. While deploying the solution I got the error as “Error occurred in deployment step ‘recycle iis application pool’: the local SharePoint server is not available. Check that the server is running and connected to the SharePoint farm”
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:
- Open the IIS (Internet Information Services)
- Identify your web application
- Right-click on the web application and start it
This resolved my issue and I was able to deploy the solution seamlessly.
Hope this helps, happy development in SharePoint !!!
