I have a lookup column that is not working and I only get "This Service is Not Available Right Now" when picking the dropdown. I do have correct permissions to both lists. How can i troubleshoot this?

    @MLEONKC ,

    To troubleshoot your issue, try as following:

    1. Do all users occur the same issue when they select the look up column? Please ask other users to check it.
    2. Clear the browser cache, refresh the list, then test again.
    3. Create a new column to look up the source list column to compare the result.
