SharePoint 2013: A State Service Application Has No Database Defined


After configuring the State Service Application, Central Administration, Monitoring, Health Analyzer, Review Problems and Solutions shows an error; "A State Service Application has no database defined" even though a database does exist.


I've seen this problem occur when the the State Service Application was configured while logged into the server with an account different from the Farm Account.

1.  Log into the SharePoint Server using the Farm Account.
2.  In Central Administration, Application Management, Service Applications, Manage Service Applications, delete the State Service Application Proxy.
3.  Delete the State Service Application.
4.  Use PowerShell to find the Identity of the State Service Database you would like to remove; Get-SPStateServiceDatabase (Microsoft TechNet, 2012).
5.  Using PowerShell, remove the State Service Application Database; Remove-SPStateServiceDatabase -Identity 00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000, replace the zeros with the ID of the State Service Database retrieved from the prior cmdlet.
6.  Using PowerShell, create a new State Service Application.
