Getting "A domain group is missing for one or more services" error when adding new node to existing


Hey all,

Current configuration:

2-node sql 2005 cluster

windows 2003 enterprise R2 w/ sp2 x64

sql 2005 enterprise x64 SP3


In the process of adding a third node into the existing 2-node cluster, we received the

"A domain group is missing for one or more services.  To install SQL 2005 as a failover cluster, domain groups must be specified for all the clustered services bing installed. To proceed, enter the missiong domain group information." 

The existing cluster functions properly and has been running w/o problems for a long while now.  An AD Global Group was created to support the cluster back when the cluster was initially created.


I found different suggestions from people online about this issue, any where from adding registry keys to take trailing blank space from sql resource group name, but none works. 


Any ideas?


Thank you in advance for any assistance.



Adding a footer to a pre-existing row group

Hi, I want to add a group footer to my report which includes the individual provider name for each page. I have already added a parent row group for details relating to each provider without specifying to include a footer to the row group. When I now add a footer using the insert footer path this places the footer below my row grouping, when I then add the provider field to the footer every page returns the first provider in the list. How do I include the footer to the grouping so ever footer relates to the individual provider type in the main body of the report? Thanks James

Adding Current Windows User to Database Encounters Existing User with Same Login


In VS2008 in debug mode, I am using SMO to programatically change the users and permissions on a database. Windows authentication alone is being used. I need to limit access to a administrators group and the current user for whom the database has been dynamically created during the first run of the application within their current Windows environment on the machine. I have no problems creating and assigning the administrators group, but when I try to create the user using the environment's UserDomainName and UserName variables (which would be my creditals) I encounter an inner exception "The login already has an account under a different user name". Before doing running the app, I manually have checked the local server for user and logins with my credentials and programatically looked at each login but have not found any matching credentials. 

Insights and suggestions appreciated.


LDAP Problem with .NET - Unknown error (0x80005000)


I am trying to create a proof of concept to show how to connect to an LDAP
server and how to search for values but I do not get anywhere. Here is what I
have so far:

Dim objEntry As DirectoryEntry
Dim objSearcher As DirectorySearcher


objEntry = New DirectoryEntry("ldap://www.openldap.com/dc=OpenLDAP,dc=org",
Nothing, Nothing, AuthenticationTypes.Anonymous)

objSearcher = New DirectorySearcher(objEntry, "(ou=People)")
objSearchResult = objSearcher.FindOne()

If Not objSearchResult Is Nothing Then
'Do something
End If

Catch ex As Exception

result.Text = ex.Message & vbNewLine & ex.Source

End Try

My code fails at the line:
objSearchResult = objSearcher.FindOne()

with the unhelpfu error of Unknown error (0x80005000)

As you can see I use the www.openldap.com directory and I can connect
anonymously using the Softeerra LDAP Browser 2.5

Any help would be greatly appreciated 

PS: I know there is already a similar thread (http://forums.asp.net/thread/1028020.aspx) but none of the suggeste

web.config - adding css friendly adapters to existing website

Hi Forum,  Please help me with the major headache I've wasted hours trying to figure out!  I have done everything explained in the tuturial to add css friendly adaters to an existing site and still no luck.  I am thinking that it has to do with modifying my current web.config file to use the css adapters.  Problem is, I can't find any specific instructions as to what I have to do to the current web.config file to make the site compatible with the css adapters!  I tried to modify the config file based on what on the example, but nothing seems to work.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks, D

"Unknown error" when adding link to My Links

When I click "Add to my Links" I get an unknown error, but only with some users. "Manage Links" works, mind you. But I still can't figure out what differs between those users... any suggestions?(People in this thread have a somewhat similar error, but with "Manage Links" instead of "Add to my Links".)

Associate Existing User to Login

Hello, I am creating a login and then associating an existing user to that login and also to a role: -- Define login create login [$(DatabaseName)] with password = '@Password', check_policy = off, check_expiration = off, default_database = [$(DatabaseName)], default_language = english; -- Associate user exec sp_change_users_login 'Update_One', N'FOP', '$(DatabaseName)'; -- Define role grant select, insert, update, delete, execute on schema::dbo to Application; exec sp_addrolemember @membername = N'FOP', @rolename = N'Application' What ever I do I get the following error: Procedure sp_change_users_login, Line 114 Terminating this procedure. The User name 'FOP' is absent or invalid. On this code line: exec sp_change_users_login 'Update_One', N'FOP', '$(DatabaseName)'; How can the user be invalid if even after this code line I am able to associate it with the role with no problem. Could someone please tell me what is going on? Thank you, Miguel

Issue Adding a new Lookup Field to an existing List Instance

I have a code base that houses all of the column, content types, template, and list instance definitions. Am using the Update functionlaity a lot from version to version. Has been working well to this point. I just added two new columns (fields), one a Lookup and the other a Multi-Lookup. The fields are added fine on the update, columns look correct and the content type to which these were added also look fine. I can create a new List instance from the content type, and the new lookup columns are fine. The problem is this. Any existing list instances that were created from this same content type, now blow up when I try and access list items via the SP GUI. Something about a valid GUID, I dont't have the exect error anymore, but will repost it when I recreate the issue for the tenth time. I tried deleting the new lookup fields from this new list instance, thinking that I might be able to re-add them to fix the problem, but I get a new stack trace when I try and re-add them. Any hints on where I can start digging would be appreciated. I think I'll start with comparing the list instance schemas between an existing list and a newly created one.  

Adding New Column to XSD File Without Remapping existing Transformations

Hello, I am loading XML file using SQL 2005 SSIS and using XSD file for XML Schema defination. Now I have a requirement where I should add couple of new columns in XSD as the XML (MAY) have extra columns for few of its tables. Is it safe to add new columns to XSD and the Map only new columns in Data Flow and all will work? or after I add new columns I need to redesign all mappings as Column order will change. (I think SSIS refere a numeric value for each column, if Yes how can I add new column with less impact)? Thanks, Prabhat Nath

Error: Access Denied on default.aspx and other pages of existing and new sites

Hi, since today we can't access the project portals of all our projects (Visual Studio TFS 2008/sharepoint admin 3.0 running on esx 4.0). I already checked every possible security settings, they're all OK. I also tried creating a new site but I can't access the site. I can however access all the settings. For example when I try to access: http://server/Sites/Profel I get the "Error: Access Denied" message and the browser is redirected to http://server/Sites/Profel/_layouts/AccessDenied.aspx?Source=http%3A%2F%2Fserver%2FSites%2FProfel%2Fdefault%2Easpx I have no problem navigating to: http://server/sites/Profel/_layouts/settings.aspx and I can go to al lot of pages, but when I want to create something like a calendar I can specify the parameters but when I click the create button I get the same error. http://server/Sites/Profel/_layouts/AccessDenied.aspx?Source=http%3A%2F%2Fserver%2FSites%2FProfel%2FLists%2Ftest%2Fcalendar%2Easpx&Type=list&name=%7B46CB3B46%2DD0F6%2D47F5%2DBA1A%2D3C9654A24A8E%7D I already tried this: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/926642  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/896861/en-us but no success Any help is welcome, Greetz, Peter

SQL 2005: Error 15401 - Windows NT user or **group** not found


I have a fresh install of Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 Standard Edition and SQL Server 2005 x64 on top of that, with Service Pack 3. This server, SERV, is in DOMAINA which trusts (one-way) DOMAINB.

When I try to create a login for a group in my domain, I get the following error:
Msg 15401, Level 11, State 1, Procedure sp_grantlogin, Line 49
Windows NT user or group 'DOMAINA\groupname' not found. Check the name again.

I get the same error whether using "create login [domaina\groupname] from widnows", "sp_grantlogin [domaina\groupname]" or Manangement Studio.
This happens ONLY for groups , both in DOMAINA and DOMAINB domains. I can add individual users from both A and B and local computer. For local computer groups: I can add default Windows groups (like Users, Guests, Event Log Readers) by [BUILTIN\Event Log Readers], etc. but not by SERV\Event Log Readers; for custom created group MyLocal it's the other way around: I can via SERV\MyLocal but not via BUILTIN\MyLocal.

If I add a domain group from either DOMAINA or DOMAINB to a local group, whether my own or builtin, I can login to SQL Server remotely using creditentials of a user who belongs to that group (user DOMAINB\ux belongs to DOMAINB\group and DOMAINB\group to SERV\MyLocal). After sp_grantlogin [serv\mylocal] of cours

Framework 2.0 changes - TCP Provider, error: 0 - An existing connection was forcibly closed by the r

If you connect to a server and open a query in SQL Managment studio (2005) and looses connection and then regain the connection, when you try to run the query it gives me a "TCP Provider, error: 0 - An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host."
This happens against both 2005 and 2000 servers.
If I re-run the query it works.
However, this happens in our VB.NET app as well for clients with Wireless connections.
So, something has changed in Framework 2.0 regarding this, does anyone know how to tell the client to not throw this error and just try connecting the server instead which will work?

Hi all,

So I am having this issue with SharePoint Central Administration. I am not able to get into many of the services within CA due to the above error. I have narrowed it down (I'm almost positive) to a user who was an administrator on the managed metadata service and is no longer with us and was removed from the AD. I have asked to have the account added back in, of course, we don't have the SID history. It was added and I used the stsadm cmdlet migrateuser -ignoresidhistory and I get the same exact error. I've tried this logged on as several diffeerent administrators including the domain administrator account and have received the same error.

Anyone have any ideas?


Error 15404 - Could not obtain information about Windows NT group/user 'Dev\Administrator', error


SQL Server 2008 R2 with the latest CU floods event log with "An exception occurred while enqueueing a message in the target queue. Error: 15404, State: 19. Could not obtain information about Windows NT group/user 'Dev\Administrator', error code 0x54b".

Domain controller is located on the same server (Win 2008 R2), this is SharePoint virtual machine. There are no DNS or Directory Service errors.

How can I troubleshoot this?


Adding .aspx page to existing web site



I have a running ASP.NET web site. There is following problem with one of the forms:

One part of submitted data is added to database after "submit" is clicked. (to "table1")

Another part is lost (not added to "table2", and no files uploaded)

I have no source code of that project.

So, because I cant edit existing page, I came to a decision to add new .aspx page to a running application with same functions as existing one.

How can I do that? Or maybe you can recommend some other solution.

Thanks, Alex. 

Error 3154: The backup set holds a backup of a database other than the existing 'xx' database.



This is happening with a restore to SS 2005 from a SS2000 backup. This article says to use the 'WITH REPLACE' clause. The SS2005 management studio does not seem to allow this via the GUI.
