SharePoint WebApplication not provisioned in SharePoint WFE's

I tried to provision a SharePoint Web-application in Application Server , but they were not provisioned in WFE's. I got "Page Cannot be Displayed" error and the web application was provisioned only in SharePoint Application Server.

I tried multiple things and finally found the reason for it. In the Application server, where the central admin is hosted, bring up the IIS. Locate the central admin application pool , right click ->Advanced Settings->under process model->Shut down Time Limit -> Set it to 600 mins-> Restart the IIS.

Delete the SharePoint Web-application that has been created in Application server and then try recreating the SharePoint Web-application. Wait for some time, you will be able to see the Web-application provisioned in WFE's

This error is might be due to CPU utilization and please check your CPU utilization and up the core's if needed.

Managed Metadata column did not display values

In a SharePoint 2010 farm, my business users are not able to see the values of a Managed Metadata column. Users with contribute access were able to see the values in "AddNewForm.aspx" and "EditForm.aspx". But the List view is not showing the values.

I did some research and did the following.
  • Browse to 'http://<URLforSiteCollection>/Lists/TaxonomyHiddenList' 
  • Give 'Read' permission to 'NT AUTHORITY\authenticated users'
Thanks to this Microsoft KB article.

The "BrowserFormWebPart" Web Part appears to be causing a problem.

We had this error when end users trying to open InfoPath Form attached to a SharePoint List. The problem seems to be some missing fields but we could not solve it.  Finally we found that one field has been removed recently, but the InfoPath form is not published.

Added that field back and published it. Problem got resolved !!!
