SharePoint 3.0 Central Administration access issue

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 07, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
 

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,

Emjay

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.

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

Sharepoint 2010 Multi-Tenancy Access Denied on Tenant Administration Site

  
Hi, I am currently implementing a Sharepoint 2010 Multi-Tenancy solution. Multi-tenancy is the partitioning of service applications in 2010 to allow data to be separated between web applications or site collections. I am using multi-tenancy to separate data and user profiles between site collections hosted on a single web application. I have partitioned the User Profile Service Application and Proxy using Windows Powershell. The paritioned Proxy Application is then associated with the single web application. I am also using the Sharepoint Foundation Subscription Service Application to subscribe to different site collections within the web application. In this way data and user profiles can be separated. However, the tenant administration site, used to manage each collection, does not allow administrator access to manage the User Profile Service. I receive a standard Sharepoint 'Access Denied' error message. No other errors or details are provided. I have tried assigning different accounts to the tenant administration site but the error still appears. The issue arises when I issue the following SPSite Powershell cmdlet: NEW-SPSite -Owneralias DOMAIN\Username -Secondaryowneralias DOMAIN\Username. The attributes provided in the Cmdlet above are used to assign tenant site administrators however, the accounts cannot access the User Profile Service. Any ideas or recommendati

Reinstalled the add-in and tried to configure again - links not displayed. Reinstalled the add-in from the account used to install MOSS - links not displayed. Please help.

Lost access to Central Administration Page

  
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. To avoid inconsistencies between the

cannot login to Central administration sharepoint 2010 - please help URGENT

  

I am not able to login to sharepoint administration, with farm admin, local admin, accounts, all logins are rejected, i recieve a page not available message.

I have run Psconfig, did not work.

I have even repaired the sharepoint 2010, (renamed 14 folder before repairing), This server is development box.

I have the option of fresh sharepoint 2010 install, I have around 8 sites, How do i attach the old sites back to new install.

I have used alrenate access mappings, is that causing issues.

This problem started when i installed a vendor product, Sharepoint informed me that premiumsite feature is not installed, I went ahead and installed premiumsite for the collection, then CA went down.

I am not sure, if it is sharepoint issue or iis issue, In the mean time, i have uninstalled the vendor product which was causing the issue

Please help me to revive the central admin

Thank you neel

How to add a custom action (a link) to Central Administration quick launch in sharepoint 2010 ?

  

Hello everyone,
How can I add a link to Central administration quick launch? There are several links in Central administration quick launch by default under "Central administration" text ("System settings", "Monitoring", "Backup and Restore", "Security", "Upgrade and Migration", "General Application Settings", "Application Management", "Configuration Wizards"). How can I add new link under "Configuration Wizards". And I tried  but it doesn't work. A link appeared on the Central administration page but it isn't displayed at the quick launch (left panel) .
I did that as follows:

----elements.xml----

<Elements xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/">
  <CustomActionGroup
       Id="CA_TestQuickLink"
       Location="Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.Default"
       Title="Test Menu Quick Link"
       Sequence="250"
       RequiredAdmin="Delegated"
       ImageUrl="myImage.gif">
    <UrlAction
