Lost access to Central Administration Page

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 13, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 
After trying to troubleshoot why all the e-mail alerts stopped working, I ran the best practices analayzer and ran the commands it suggested the paragraph below. "The same account that you use to run SharePoint 3.0 Central Administration must be configured as the SharePoint Timer Service. If they are not the same, the system may not be able to send Alert Notifications and you will not be able to add a content database to a web application using the Manage Content Databases page. Although there are built in mechanisms to keep these accounts synchronized, it is possible to manually change the SharePoint Timer Service account. If the account that you are using to run SharePoint 3.0 Central Administration is the correct account, you can log on to the Web server where the SharePoint Timer Service running as the wrong account. From a command prompt change to the directory where the SharePoint Timer Service is running, this is typically C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\BIN, and run the command: stsadm -o updatefarmcredentials -identitytype configurableid -userlogin domain\account -password password. Although you could directly update the SharePoint Time Server account by opening Administrative Tools, Component Services, you should use this approach only as a last resort.

SharePoint 2010 organization installation without access to Central Administration?

  
Our organization of 5000+ internal users and 1000 external vendors wants to integrate SharePoint 2010. We are are being mandated to use an offering of SharePoint 2010 in the cloud. All peer organizations are also being told to use this service, and we are all going to be on a single SP farm. We want to have several internal site collections, customization of MySites, an extranet, and a public facing site. We will not have the ability to access central administration ourselves, we have to go through a centralized state IT department and have them make changes for us. We will only have admin abilities for our own site collections. Installing 3rd party web parts will be a nightmare process as well as making small changes to central admin resources as we are dependent on their time-line to test and integrate these for us. What issues are we likely to see because of this, and is this even a feasible option for us? BTW, they do not uphold SLA agreements and currently they sometimes take days or weeks to fix issues, where our people would take care of it in hours if possible.

SharePoint 3.0 Central Administration access issue

  

When I click on the icon to open SharePoint 3.0 Central Administration I get the following error:

Cannot connect to the configuration database.

The SharePoint site itself is up with no issues. The problem began after someone else restarted the server.

I stopped and started the App Pool for SharePoint 3.0 Central Administration but the problem still exists.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance,

Can't access Central Administration anymore

  
When I try to start the Central Administration, this appears:

System.ArgumentNullException: No message was deserialized prior to calling the DispatchChannelSink. Parameter name: requestMsg at System.Runtime.Remoting.Channels.DispatchChannelSink.ProcessMessage(IServerChannelSinkStack sinkStack, IMessage requestMsg, ITransportHeaders requestHeaders, Stream requestStream, IMessage& responseMsg, ITransportHeaders& responseHeaders, Stream& responseStream) at System.Runtime.Remoting.Channels.SoapServerFormatterSink.ProcessMessage(IServerChannelSinkStack sinkStack, IMessage requestMsg, ITransportHeaders requestHeaders, Stream requestStream, IMessage& responseMsg, ITransportHeaders& responseHeaders, Stream& responseStream) at System.Runtime.Remoting.Channels.Http.HttpServerTransportSink.ServiceRequest(Object state) at System.Runtime.Remoting.Channels.SocketHandler.ProcessRequestNow()

There is no Skype on the Server, or another Application that is using Port 80..
So what to do to solve this?

Central Administration returns blank page after installation on Windows 7

  
Hi, I have successfully installed SharePoint 2010 on Windows 7.  However when I browse to Central Administration, I just get a blank page.  I have been able to create a new web application and teamwork site using PowerShell, and that site also returns a blank page.  In the IIS log, I can see that the requests produce a 500 error.  Rerunning the Configuration Wizard has not helped.  Other ASP.NET sites run ok.

Any suggestions?

There are 2 places that "Search Visibility" can be set on WSS3 servers:

Adding table to a page, but the format lost when I use clear border

  

Hi,

I added a table to a page, by default, the table layout is the light border. So, I add my content and the vertical align seems to set to the top. But when I changed it to clear border, the content of the table will set vertical align to center. Is there a way to change this back to top align but with the clear border. I don't think I can do this by what is available in the ribbon. Please advice.

"Only their own" allows users to edit, then shows access denied page

  
I am managing a WSS 3.0 portal.  I have created custom lists where a group has contribute permissions.  Under List Settings|Advanced Settings, when I set Edit Access to "Only their own" or "None", my test users can see the Edit Icon and the Edit Item menu option, and bring up the Edit Form.  When they click "OK", they get the Access Denied page.  My experience in that past is that they should not even been shown the option to edit, and they should get Access Denied if they somehow navigate to the EditForm.aspx page.  I even tested this on a brand new site, with three Links lists, each with different Edit Access Levels (All, None, Only their own).  I added one user with contribute permissions.  He had the same result: He could get all the way to EditForm.aspx, but got "Access Denied" when he submitted his changes.  What can I do to fix this?Christopher W.

Can Web Services be blocked by Central administration ?

  
I am a Site Collection administrator. I am thinking of using Web Services (_vti_bin/Lists.asmx etc.,) and display some data regarding Lists, Permissions, SubSites on some pages. My question is whether accessing these web services at site level can be blocked by central administration or not. If they cannot be blocked, then I would like to go forward on what I have mentioned above. Can anyone please clarify. Thanks.

Central Administration no longer accessible by any account after changing Farm Account in SharePoint

  
I have a problem, that I no longer can access Central Administration Website, only the Sharepoint itself. I was running installation of Sharepoint 2010 Server with administrative account ImTheAdmin, who is a Domain Admin in the MYDOMAIN domain. Using ImTheAdmin I installed Sharepoint 2010 on one of the Windows 2008 R2 member servers. Besides that, I made ImTheAdmin the primary administrator of the Sharepoint. ImTheAdmin became the only user of this Sharepoint 2010 server after installation.  I installed everything on one box with default installation settings. I used builtin SQL server, not Standard or Enterprise. What then happened is: Using ImTheAdmin account, I opened Central Administration Website, and it said, that I need to change the Farm Account, as the account for Farm was the default one (I think it was network service). So I created a regular domain user in AD Users and Computers called MYDOMAIN\SPFarmAccount. Then using IE, I went to the Central Administration Website page, which is meant for changing farm account usernames. I put in MYDOMAIN\SPFarmAccount down in to the form of Central Administration Website, added the check mark, that it would react to password changes, and pressed Change. Browser worked for a while, and after that nothing seemed to work. Neither my Sharepoint, nor Central Administration website. When going to Central Administra

Failed to change Farm Account in Sharepoint 2010 server, now Central Administration is not accessibl

  
Hello, I have a problem, that I no longer can access Central Administration Website, only the Sharepoint itself.

So I created a regular domain user MYDOMAIN\SharepointFarmAccount. The account name was too long to be as a Windows 2000 name, so it showed there without last 't', e.g. MYDOMAIN\SharepointFarmAccoun. I thought, Windows 2000 is long gone, so I didn't pay much attention, I think everywhere the account SID is important. I don't know if that is the real problem with my failure later, but it might be one of the reasons. I put MYDOMAIN\SharepointFarmAccount down in to the form of Central Administration Website, added the check mark, that it would react to password changes, and pre
