  1. Start IIS Manager
  2. Select Application Pools
  3. Look for SharePoint Web Services Root.
  4. If it is stopped, start the pool.
  5. Under Sites, look for SharePoint Web Services and then select it.
  6. If it is stopped, start the web service.
  • This issue occurred immediately after completing the Productions Configuration Wizard on the first WFE being added to the farm.  It's unclear why this didn't start this time: previous configs on this same machine started without issue.
