This is mostly Exchange binaries  issues. Please upgrade Exchange 2013 to Latest CU7.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I sometimes get this when launching Powershell on my Exchange 2010 where it cannot connect to local server, I found that quickets fix was to reset iis

just open command prompt and run iisreset

The impact will be an minor outage for OWA and Outlook Anywhere users as the service stops and starts again.
