How do I change the managed accout passwords with sharepoint 2010 adna RODC

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

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.

When I try and change the managed account passwords in central admin after a few minutes I get:

Error  The specifed domain either does not exist or could not be contacted.

So I Try and change the PW with a PS script

PS C:\> C:\SHPupdates\changepass.ps1
Service Account: XXX\XXXXXXXX
Enter Password: *********************
Confirm Password: *********************

Are you sure you want to perform this action?
Performing operation "Set-SPManagedAccount" on Target "XXX\XXXXXXXX".
[Y] Yes  [A] Yes to All  [N] No  [L] No to All  [S] Suspend  [?] Help (default is "Y"): y

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

Setting up FBA in Sharepoint 2010 Foundation - Managed to lock myself out of all sites - Could reall


Sorry, I've just realised I posted this in the wrong area. If a mod/admin could move this, I would greatly appreciate it


Hello MSDN,

I have been working towards setting up FBA on my Sharepoint 2010 Foundation server, hosted by Rackspace. But while setting up .net user roles I get all manner of strange behaviour like messages about trust relationships, and have to edit the GAC. 

Now, I have managed to lock myself out of all of my sites (Including central admin), which, as you can imagine, is rather frustrating.

This isn't a mission critical server, but it would be nice to have it back online today. So if anyone knows a bit about setting up FBA, ask away and I can give any information that you require, and if necessary, I'm happy have a chat on Windows Live.


Cheers guys/

SharePoint 2010 Search Service - does not escape forbidden signs in Managed Metadata fields



I´m using SharePoint 2010s Search Service to get items from a list. In the list I have managed metadata field for Item. When I search on Item "Item 1 & 2" I get xml that is incorrect. SharePoint does not escape the &. (The mapping is correct so when I search on an item not containg & it returns correct xml.)

But if I in my description field writes "A description & some more text" then & is escaped.

Anyone seen this before? Is there some way to configure the search service to escape forbidden signs to return none broken xml?
