Secure Store proxy unexpected exception - Event 7557 (SharePoint Server 2010)
Applies to: SharePoint Server 2010
Alert Name: Secure Store proxy unexpected exception
Event ID: 7557
Summary: When a front-end Web server receives a request from a client computer, it routes the request to a Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 application server through a load balancer. The load balancer maintains a list of available servers for a given service application. If the Secure Store service application on one or more application servers does not respond, the load balancer will remove the application server from the list of available servers and will raise this event.
If the Secure Store service application is enabled on more than one Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 application server, the client computers will not be affected. If the service is not enabled on more than one application server, the client computers that rely on the secure store credential database to authenticate users will fail to authenticate.
