I've been struggling for the past week and a half on trying to configure Forms Based Authentication in SharePoint Server 2010, installed on a WindowsServer2008 R2 64 bit virtual machine. Throughout my tinkering, the Health Report titled "The Security
Token Service is not available" has been there. I've tried several different things to try and fix this (ensured the service was running in IIS and Services on Server from CA; even reinstalled the SharePoint 2010 software!) to no avail.
When navigating to the
http://localhost:32843/SecurityTokenServiceApplication/securitytoken.svc location, I get a error w/correlation ID; the log of which had this to say:
Area : SharePoint Foundation
Category : Runtime
Level : Unexpected
EventID : tkau
Message : System.ServiceModel.EndpointNotFoundException: The service '/Securit
yTokenServiceApplication/securitytoken.svc' does not exist. at Sy
viceAvailable(String normalizedVirtualPath) at System.ServiceMod
