Distributed Cache (AppFabric Cache) Event ID: 1000 & 1026 on SharePoint Server 2013

The reason I am writing this blog, because I spent a lot of time to fix the AppFabric Cache’s event ID 1000 & 1026. I almost spend a week and tried all the available solutions but no luck. here are the options which I tried in a sequence to fix my issue.

1)      I start the Distributed Cache on One server via Central Admin > manage Services on server, but it’s stuck on starting. Then I tried to re-start App fabric services from Services Console but its stuck atstopping.

Easy Fix:

Easy fix for this, add the services account which running AppFabric services into Local admin on the server. Once services started you can remove it from local admin.

2)      Now time to fix the error, once you make sure the Distributed Cache services started on the server and AppFabric services running via services console. Run the below mentioned powershell command to repair it.
$instanceName =”SPDistributedCacheService Name=AppFabricCachingService”
$serviceInstance = Get-SPServiceInstance | ? {($_.service.tostring()) -eq $instanceName -and ($ -eq $env:computername}


Now run this one


Hope this will fix your problem. Making sure DC is running please run the following commands in the sequence to get the report.


Get-CacheHost ( result should be like this if its up otherwise down or unknown)

HostName : CachePort    Service Name     Service Status  Version

ComputerName: Name of the server where DC running
