Cannot publish pages in SharePoint 2010

Posted by Christian Dam on January 15, 2010

If you have created your SharePoint 2010 farm manually without running the farm Configuration Wizard, you might encounter this error when you try to publish a page or stating a workflow:

“The form cannot be rendered. This may be due to a misconfiguration of the Microsoft SharePoint Server State Service. For more information, contact your server administrator.”

The problem is stat the State service is not configured since the Farm Configuration Wizard has not been run. Configure it with PowerShell using these instructions from Technet:

  1. On the Taskbar, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Windows PowerShell Modules.
  2. In Windows PowerShell, create a service application by typing $serviceApp = New-SPStateServiceApplication -Name “State Service”
  3. Create a State Service database and associate it with a service application, by typing New-SPStateServiceDatabase -Name “StateServiceDatabase” -ServiceApplication $serviceApp.
  4. Create a State Service Application Proxy and associate it with the service application by typing New-SPStateServiceApplicationProxy -Name “State Service” -ServiceApplication $serviceApp -DefaultProxyGroup.

Once these instructions are run, you have a shiny new State Service Service Application and you should be able to publish pages again. Remember to verify that your web Application is associated with the State Service Service Application.
