Recently I was facing the below issue from last 2 week and finally got to solve. A very big thank to my Tech Lead K Kathiravan and MSDN forums.

To see the details about the error please follow the below forum URL  where I have posted in the Microsoft SharePoint forum.

We have tried all the solutions for the problem, searched 2 weeks for the error, but did not got the solution.

Finally got a clue from a reply from Stuart Starrs in the below forum topic.

Solution:
The error was coming because of the multisever farm. Please check carefully the above forum topic.

Open the Central Administration -> System Settings ->Servers -> Manage Servers in this farm ->then remove the unused server (Please be careful since we have forget to remove the unused server we remove that now/ but if you have only one server then most probably there is some other issues.)

or Go to the URL: http://[Servername]/_admin/FarmServers.aspx  and do the needful delete server stuffs as i discussed above.

The above solution works for me, hope it will helpful to you.
