The Unattended Service Account Application ID is not specified or has an invalid value + VISIO + SharePoint 2010

 Today’s article is based on an alert which has been triggered by Health Analyzer and it’s based on VISIO SERVICE APPLICATION.

What’s the problem? How that alert has been triggered?

Let me explain this scenario step by step so that there will be no confusion-
My manager has asked me to create a Visio service application with respect to some upcoming project that we need to work on…So I simply go ahead and created the requested service application and replied back by saying please start the testing and reach out to me in case of any issues. I was pretty much relaxed as I have done my job and waiting for the inputs.

So far so good- but I have a habit of checking the health analyzer every now and then to check of any errors/exceptions/new alerts/triggers.

Here starts the problem- I checked and found the following problem:
The Unattended Service Account Application ID is not specified or has an invalid value.

If you follow the above mentioned remedy then 100% your issue will be resolved but it’s not very clear and up to the mark and that’s why I am writing this article to make it more clear and concrete one.

Step by Step Resolution:

1)   Central administration
2)   Application management
3)   Manage service application
4)   Select secure store service SA
5)   Now you need to generate a NEW KEY (you can ignore this steps if you have already done it before)
6)   Enter the pass phrase
7)   Click OK

1)   We have to be on the same page i.e. secure store service application
2)   Now we need to click on NEW
3)   Now you need to fill 4 important textboxes
a)   Application ID: Make sure you enter something unique and note it down somewhere as we cannot change it back.
b)   Display name
c)   Valid email address
d)   Target application type- it should be group here
e)   Click on Next (Don’t change anything, keep the displayed info as it is)
f)    Enter your farm credentials (Domain\username) in both administrators as well as members section.
4)   Click OK

By this way, we have done 70% job completed (Phase 1 and phase 2) with respect to secure store service application.

Now we need to complete 30% with respect to the actual application i.e. VISIO service application.

Phase#3: -last step-
1)   Central administration
2)   Application management
3)   Manage service applications
4)   VISIO Service application
5)   Global settings
6)   You will see a textbox of application id- you need to enter the same application id that we have used in the above steps
7)   Click OK

That’s it- we are done. What you need to do now- very simple!

1.   Central administration
2.   Click on health analyzer link
3.   Click on the alert which is showing for VISIO
4.   Reanalyze now
5.   Gone!
