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.
