I have a list that is giving users the following error at the bottom of the page.  
"The server was unable to save this form at this time.  Please Try again."
my knowledge on sharepoint is basically zero and our sharepoint man is on vacation.

i read an article that reccommended resetting the token service by doing an iis reset.

My question is 2 parts.  
1)... should i proceed with the iis reset as a solution.

2) could i just reboot the whole environment to fix the error.

IIS Reset shouldn't hurt. When it completes check the site is up OK. Very occasionally an application pool fails to restart after an IIS Reset which looks worrying but is just a right click and start in IIS (on the web front end server). Take a screenshot of the app pools before proceeding so you can see any differences.

If you resort to a reboot, do the Web Front ends first. If that doesn't help you can also do the app servers, but unlikely you need to touch the database servers.

Just a few thoughts in addition to Jamie's great info -

Have you tried to submit the form later as the message recommends? Sometimes, depending upon the environment you may have to resubmit because the app server or service app is maxed out.

Also, be careful when you do an IIS reset or server reboot, users could lose their work and they will not be happy campers at all. Best to do that in off hours.

This is a message that usually doesn't require anything such as a reset or reboot however, so proceed with some caution before a mild situation becomes bad, IMHO.

Hope that helps...
