I've been trying for a whole day to configure managed metadata services on a windows server 2008 R2 environment but I keep getting this error:
The Managed Metadata Service or Connection is currently not available. The Application Pool or Managed Metadata Web Service may not have been started. Please Contact your Administrator.
I've tried searching for a resolution and here's what I got:
- Change the application pool account / Check that the pool is running.
- Download hot fixes KB981002 and KB976462.
- IISRESET / Restart the server.
- Ensure that Managed Metadata service is running.
The third solution worked for me in my development environment which is Windows 7, but I couldn't get it to work in Windows server 2008 R2 which is the production environment.
Any help would be appreciated :)
