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.

Resolution:

You need to install the ‘State Service’. Open the PowerShell for SharePoint, Run the below cmd-lets:

1. Create Session State service application:

$serviceApp = New-SPStateServiceApplication -Name "State Service"

2. Create a State Service database and associate it with a service application

New-SPStateServiceDatabase -Name "SP2010_State_Service" -ServiceApplication $serviceApp

3. Create a State Service Application Proxy and associate it with the service application

New-SPStateServiceApplicationProxy -Name "State Service" -ServiceApplication $serviceApp -DefaultProxyGroup

Other settings to verify:

  • Verify that the State Service Service Application is enabled: Go to “Application Management” >> “Manage service applications”, Check whether the “State Service” is enabled.
  • Verify that your web application is associated with the State Service Service Application: In “Central Administration”, Go to “Application Management” and select the “Configure service application associations” in “Service Applications” section.
