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

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 31, 2010    Points: 0   Category :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. 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.

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 site collections accessible only by system account

  
I I have setup a VM to start palying with SP development, everything running under administrator (sql, sharepoint services....). After succefully creating the root on port 80 and a couple of site collections, whenever I shoot IE http://mymoss or any othe site collection, I go right away to the web site without the usual authentification dialog box. On the right jand side, I see I am logged in as "System account". When I try to "sign in as a different user", enter domain\administrator, who is owner, the dialog box just keeps coming back and I can not log. . Thanks in advance

Same server farm administrator domain account for both Intranet and Internet Sharepoint site?

  
Hello,   We are planning to setup 2 streams of architecture for both Intranet and Internet web sites. Just wondering whether there is any best practices/security concerns if we are using the same domain account as the Server Farm Administrator for both Intranet and Internet platform?   Thanks,

Problems with Farm Account magically losing permissions to certain things

  
I don't know what's going on, but this has now happened two times in a row during my rebuild from TP to Beta (completely new build from the OS up).  I'm using the same service account (domain account) as my setup and farm account.  While logged in with my farm account, I install the SP2010 pre-reqs, then the bits, then give it dbcreator and securityadmin roles in SQL, then run the SPT wizard.  Within the wizard, I specify the same account as my farm account, and all works fine and dandy.  After it's done, I'm able to get into Central Admin with this same account and see/do everything.After working with things a while and following the MS instructions for getting the User Profile SA working, if I reboot or logout/login, then I suddenly don't have access to some very important things, such as:- System Settings > Manage Services on Server.  It just disappears completely- Security > Configure Service Accounts.  This does not disappear, but clicking on it causes a prompt saying "Error:Access Denied."  Previously, I was able to go in here and set my service accounts for things like search, user code service, etc (I set them to the proper service accounts)- Configuration Wizards > Launch Configuration Wizard.  I used this multiple times when getting my farm setup, but now it's gone.I've gone so far as to make my farm account all of these things:- Member of B

Can't view the SharePoint Site. Explorer won't take domain account

  
Hi, I'm having issues viewing the SharePoint 2010 Site that I have deployed from any workstation. It seems that my permissions settings have broken - even though I haven't touched them. Whenever http://start/ is visited (the Intranet top site) it asks for credentials. They should have been taken from the User that was logged onto the machine. E.g. NATWIDE\UserA. After entering the credentials, it doesn't accept them, and asks for them again. And again. And then blank page. I'm not receiving the SharePoint "restricted access" page... HOWEVER, when I log into the website via Mozilla Firefox - it appears that the credentials are fine, and it works according to the permissions set for the site from within SharePoint. Does anyone have any idea why this would be happening. I'm completely stumped and I can't find a similar issue anywhere else. I have installed a Stand-alone installation of SharePoint 2010 Server Enterprise on Server 2008. The account that installed the SharePoint server and is a FARM Administrator, can't even log in to view the page. Cheers, Stu.

Reporting Services Sharepoint Add-in not showing links in Sharepoint Central Administration

  
Hi. I've just installed RS Sharepoint Add-in on Sharepoint farm and have the issue, that links to configure RS in Sharepoint are not showed in Central Administration Site->Application Management, and RS features can't be activated for web app. My configuration is: A separate DBMS on Windows 2008 SP2 x64, SQL 2008 SP1 x64, with MOSS and RS dbs. Web frontend: Win 2008 SP2 x64, Sharepoint 2007 SP2, RS 2008 SP1. What I did: installed RS and RS Sharepoint Add-in on web frontend, configured RS to Sharepoint mode (http://frontend:portnumber/Reportserver displays reports catalogs, reports shows message about configuring RS to Sharepoint mode), tried to set Sharepoint from central admin - links were not displayed. 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.

Changing Windows Administrator account name

  
I am planning on changing the name of the administrator account in Windows for security purposes.  I plan to follow kb 816109 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/816109/en-us) to use Group Policy to do this (we are running W2003 on servers).  My question is, will this affect anything in regards to SQL.  I have SQL2005 on a member server and normally use Windows authentication for Sql SMS and SQL services.  I can see username is filled in as 'domain/administrator' and is greyed out so it cannot be changed...if the administrator account is renamed through group policy, will Windows authentication still work with the new login name or will it only work with account name 'Administrator'?

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. ( http://www.experts-exchange.com/images/346243/System-Account-Info.jpg) How can I change it as be DOMAIN\Administrator & not SHAREPOINT\system or System Account? Please advise...  

SharePoint 2007 - Survey list - Getting user's Windows account ID from a web service using display

  
Surveys...grrrr.   I am developing a .NET console application that accesses survey data from a single survey list using the MOSS web service "Lists".   I am able to enumerate the survey list and get to the items except for the author of the survey response.  When I get to the column ows_Author, it appears to be a lookup value formatted like this:  "1066;#JOHN DOE".   How can I, using web services alone, lookup the corresponding Windows login ID of that user?  If I go to the survey in SharePoint and click on the name in the view, it takes me to a site-based user profile page that does show the account ID I want.  The page that displays appears to be a virtualized page like this "_layouts/userdisp.aspx?ID=1066".   What I really need is JOHN DOE's account ID like "domain\id". Can I get to this with the data I have available? Thanks

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.

Creating local user account in Sharepoint 2010

  

Hi

I need to create a few account in Sharepoint 2010 that don't belong to the active directory import. I have logged on to the Sharepoint server and created the accounts and expected them to appear when I went to Site Settings and then people and groups and searched for the account names.

I did the same in 2007 and these still appear as the machinename/username.

Is there something I don't know about?

not able to create a new web application with farm account

  

Hi

I installed sharepoint 2010 on windows 2008 R2 machine. I used the farm account to configure the farm as per the documentation. When i logged in to the central admin application using farm account, "New" button (to create a new web application) is disabled under "Manage Web applications".  farm account is not added to the administrator group of sharepoint server.

The "New" buttons gets enabled if i run "Internet explorer" as administrator. Please advise what could be the solution to fix this.
