Today I found out that after some server restarts, important Exchange services do not get restarted. A tiny amount of research and I was able to find the correct solution: Manually start the “Microsoft Exchange Forms-Based Authentication” service. I looked in services MMC snap in and sure enough this service was stopped.

If you receive this error, the first thing you should do is make sure the MSExchangeFBA service is running!
