Change domain AD + upgrade Sharepoint 2007->2010 = window with a request login/password


New installation of Sharepoint 2010 in Domain_A domain. I added a content database WSS_content2007 from Sharepoint 2007 (from domain Domain_B). I didn't run the command stsadm -migrateuser. New accounts from domain Domain_A were manually added to SharePoint 2010. In table Userinfo on WSS_Content2007 on Sharepoint 2010 are accounts from both domains. Old domain Domain_B was deleted.
Users get a window with a request re-enter your username and password from time to time.
What should I do? Can I delete the account from the domain Domain_B with stsadm command? Should the column tp_title contain unique records for the same user and the same site?

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. I was running installation of Sharepoint 2010 Server with administrative account ImTheAdmin, who is a Domain Admin in the domain 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, for the account for Farm was the default one (I think it was network service). 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

SharePoint 2010 new install falls over when using automatic password renewal.

Guys, I've installed SharePoint Server 2010 today, and it has fallen over heavily once this afternoon and I rebuilt the farm, it has now just happened again. I believe it is falling over when I set the managed credentials up to change the password automatically. To test this feature I scheduled the password change so it would happen in the next 15-30 mins to monitor the behavior. Initially I manually did a 'change password for this account now' with a randomly generated password that SP generates. I did this for the Farm account, I then restarted the Timer Service (which obviously uses this account). The restart of the service was successful. I was then using the 'Manage Service Accounts' console to change ther service for the 'Windows Token Claims Service' to a least priv service account, I then did the same for some other services. I then got the following exception: SharePoint.Administration.SPWindowsServiceCredentialDeploymentJobDefinition... Unfortunately I don't have the entire exception as I no longer can access the farm, but it seemed to suggest there was already an object in the timer service named the same as the job I had potentially created in trying to change the credentials, and said to rename the object first?!?! Others have had a similar exception trying to change the profile import service credentials (I LEFT THIS SERVICE ALONE!!). I then restarted the

How to change the System Account into Domain Administrator account in Sharepoint?

I'm attaching the captured image from the Central Admin of our Sharepoint Server. (http://www.experts-exchange.com/images/346242/Central-Admin.jpg) As you can see from the Central Admin image, the user account shown is "System Account", in whereas I logged in as our Domain Administrator. Then when you check it's info from My Settings, the details from the captured image System Account Info was shown.

So we have sharepoint 2010 in a subnet that has a RODC this subnet is locked down so that all traffic to the "writable DC's" is blocked.   It was my understanding that theRODC would pass on to the "writable DC's" requests that require a write to AD.

SharePoint 2010 Foundation- Cannot Change Server Name?


I changed my server name yesterday and cannot access SP any more (Cannot connect to configuration database error).  This article:  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc288510.aspx says you can rename using Powershell but when I open the mgmt shell I get the error "“The local farm is not accessible. Cmdlets with FeatureDependencyId are not registered” . I ran the mgmt shell "as administrator"

I enabled TCP/IP and Named Pipes in SQL Manager and connected from a remote machine. Tried to add DBO to SharePoint_Shell_Access but get an error ""Cannot use the special Principal "dbo" (Microsoft SQL Server Error 15405)".

I have re-created this on a lab machine with a pretty plain vanilla install (Single Server). I tried to run the SharePoint Config but it says "not connected to a farm". Saw an article where you can disconnect from farm (that is the next prompt) and then reconnect. Tried and cannot reconnect...

I am really trying to avoid naming my server back to the original name, for it is a production server now (SharePoint not yet, thankfully). Any help would be greatly appreciated

ADDS groups renaming does not change lookups in Sharepoint 2010

After renaming the ADDS group names, I try to add those AD security groups to other Sharepoint Custom Groups and the OLD name shows up in sharepoint not the new renamed security group name. Even the lookups dont reflect the new group names or even find them correctly upon searching the AD.

Suggestions? Thx

We've just got the sharepoint2010 installed to test it, like it so far, but many options that we were ablet o find quickly are now at different places, so I might be asking something very simple here that I just didn't see, could anyone point out for me where do I go to change master page in sharepoint 2010? it used to be under site settings -> looks and feels, but there is not this option under looks and feels in 2010, all i see about master pages is a gallery of what master pages there are. Thanks in advance.
