When we installed the certificate and left the SSL port number empty, we received these error messages. To resolve the problem we added the port number of SSL 443, and restarted IIS.
This problem can also be caused by misconfiguring IIS on the passive node of a cluster. Make sure the settings are the same for both nodes, especially SSL port and certificate settings.
By far, the most common cause of Event ID 1013 is metabase corruption. Metabase corruption itself can occur for a variety of reasons, including the following: antivirus software scanning the %systemroot%\system32\inetsrv\metabase.bin file, Iisadmin.exe process stopped or killed unexpectedly, unsupported editing of the metabase, and disk corruption or other hardware failures. See MSEX2K3DB
