Fixing: Usage and Health Data Collection Service Proxy Stopped

After provisioning all of my SharePoint 2010 Service Applications using PowerShell and checking to make sure all Service Applications had been provisioned correctly I noticed that even though the Usage and Health Data Collection Service was started the Proxy was stopped.  Apparently this is a known bug on clean installs of SharePoint 2010.  To fix this, and start this service proxy follow the steps below.

1.  Log into the Central Administration Server
2.  Bring up the SharePoint 2010 Management Shell (PowerShell) with Admin rights.
3.  Type: Get-SPServiceApplicationProxy

This will list all the IDs for each Service Application Proxy on the farm

4.  Find the ID for Usage and Health Data Collection Service Proxy
5.  Rigt click, select “Mark” and highlight the ID and right click again.  This will paste the ID in the clipboard.
6.  Next type: 

$UP = Get-SPServiceApplicationProxy | Where {$_.ID -eq “Paste ID Here”}
$UP.Provision()

This will provision the Usage and Health Collection Service Proxy.

Browse to Central Administration -> Application Management -> Manage Service Applications.  You might have to refresh the page if this page is already up.  You should now see that the proxy service has now started.

You can follow these same steps for any other Service Proxy that may be stopped.

*Bonus

If you don’t want to get the Proxy ID’s you can provision the proxy services by simply calling its name i.e.  This will eliminate one less powershell script.

$UP = Get-SPServiceApplicationProxy | Where {$_.TypeName -eq “Usage and Health Data Collection Proxy”}
$UP.Provision()
