I have installed a new instance of Sharepoint 2007 and am in the process of configuring all the farm services. At the moment the farm consists of a sharepoint box and a separate sql server. Here is the catch. There are already some non-sharepoint
databases on the sharepoint server. The account under which Central Administration runs has dbcreator and securityadmin privileges in the database. The Sharepoint_Config and SharePoint_AdminContent databases were created without any issues.
When I try to start the Windows Services Search, I get an "Unknown Error." Looking in the event viewer gives the following error "The server principal "MyServerPrincipal" is not able to access the database "MyDatabase" under the current security context."
This is true, MyServerPrincipal does not have privileges to access MyDatabase, but why should it. MyDatabase has nothing to do with sharepoint.
In an attempt to get past this issue, I gave MyServerPrincipal public access to MyDatabase, but that resulted in an additional error saying that it lacked INSERT privileges. This is really worriesome. Does anyone know why Sharepoint Search configuration
would try to access the non-Sharepoint database?
Thanks a lot.
Hi to all,
I've an environment that includes 3 machines: the sp2010 frontend (W2K8 R2), the sp2010 backend (SQL2008 R2), the analysis services backend (SQL2008 R2).
I've successfully setup my environment with Kerberos constrained delegation and the entire thing works fine with both performancepoint and excel services (the requirement was to pass the user's domain identity to the analysis backend): thanks to the
excellent SP2010 Kerberos Guide.
Now I've extended this portal to the Extranet zone, assigned it a new host header and upgraded my SPNs to include the new fqdn and also added it to the necessary accounts in Active Directory.
In the intranet environment everything is fine. I've published the Sharepoint site to the external network onto the ISA 2006 and setup the Kerberos constrained delegation from the isa computer account to the Sharepoint SPN.
So here is the point: I can correctly access the Sharepoint site from external with Kerberos authentication, performancepoint is fine but I cannot open excel workbooks from this zone, I already trusted both the file and the data connection locations with
the external fqdn but still no luck. Even the sample workbook does not open. The error is "error while trying to execute the requested action. Retry".
Anyone has any hint on the possible causes?
I had a nice working sharepoint services 3.0 environment, which I added some webparts to. these webparts worked fine, although it said I had no permission to view the data it was trying to get to (which is hosted on another server).
I changed the authntication to windows integrated in the Central Administration part, created a new account which is a domain admin and added to the WSS and IIS groups, which would have the permissions to view the other servers data, and did a
setspn to register the HTTP and to put is against that user.
Now I cannot access Central Administration or the site at all and although I have changed it all back, I get Cannot complete this action please try again. I have already spoken to microsoft concierge and followed a barrage of pages, and they say to
Any helpers out there today?

Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010 include a new set of components called Application Services. These put a rich set of tools in a developer's bag for Office automation. We'll show you how to use Office OpenXML, Word Automation Services and SharePoint to build a simple application that merges separate status reports into a single document.
