    I tried the above solution but still had error reported. My problem turned out to be related to SQL Server database permission.

    I used dedicated application pool with user SVC-SPWebSvcAppPool and when I checked ULS I found out error reported was related to this user not being able to access managed metadata service database as well as the site collection database I setup for Content hub URL.

    I gave above user SQL Server database permission and all worked fine.

    The following one guided me in the right direction;…/the-managed-metadata-or-connection-is-currently-not-available.aspx

    Even though solution suggested didn’t solve my problem but it made me think problem could be permission-related.

    I restarted the web services website in iismanager on both servers and it's working on both servers now.  Not sure why these got messed up.

    I have this problem on one of my QA servers.

    I cannot get the services to re-initialize.

    iisreset 50+ times, rebooted server 100 times …

    disabled service

    re-enabled service

    checked permissions

    edited permissions and added more group accounts to test

    still did not fix the issue.

    forgot to mention it's SharePoint 2013

    I am facing same issue but in my case I get same error in CA as well as on sites.

  14. Before you grant or change any permissions, you could try and run "psconfig -cmd secureresouces" on each of the SharePoint servers. This is due to a bug in one cumulative update that does not perform this step properly.

    NOTE: During this process some services might be unavailable on the server.

    "psconfig.exe -cmd secureresources" worked for me in 2013 when I had this same issue. 11 minutes of nail-biting .
