Event ID 8313: A failure was reported when trying to invoke a service application

November 1, 2014

Recently I came across this issue and in SharePoint 2013 farm and find too many entries for Event ID 8313. When used process explorer I find out too many permission issues for the SP Service accounts on files and registry keys as well.

Event Text

A failure was reported when trying to invoke a service application: EndpointFailure
Process Name: OWSTIMER
Process ID: 2604
AppDomain Name: DefaultDomain
AppDomain ID: 1
Service Application Uri: urn:schemas-microsoft-com:sharepoint:service:e83f1cd236394b70beb0998888addcbc#authority=urn:uuid:8bca10c5c19a429289a7eea7f5159e86&authority=https://ServerName:32844/Topology/topology.svc
Active Endpoints: 2
Failed Endpoints: 1
Affected Endpoint: http://Serevrname:32843/e83f1cd236fgfgfgfbeb0998888addcbc/Metadatawebservice.svc
Source SharePoint Foundation
Event ID 8313
Level Error
User : spfarm

Solution: When used process explorer I find out too many permission issues for the SP Service accounts on files and registry keys as well. Also notice that Managed Meta Data service was running on the server it’s not supposed to. I stopped the service as it is running on another app server and run the following command to resolve permissions issue.

PSCONFIG.exe –cmd Secureresources

 Another power shell command for the same purpose is

“Initialize-SPResourceSecurity “ to enforces security for all resources, including files, folders, and registry keys on Local Server.

Hope this will help some one out there !
