Cannot find Manage services under Service Application of Central admin

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 01, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
We have Intranet solution based on SharePoint 2010 small farm. Somehow we don't see Manage services on server under the Service Applications in the central admin. Portal seem to work otherwise fine. When we opened the page to browser http://servername:14082/_admin/Server.aspx we received error: Access denied. We have tried to login with Admin, SP_Farm and SP_Admin user, but access denied every time. I checked who have Full user rights in the Central admin. It is SP_Admin Admins of the Sitecollection is SP_admin and Administrator. Why this happens?Kenny_I

Web Application list in Central Admin in 2007

Can somebody tell me where Central Admin pulls the data for: Central Administration > Application Management > Web Application List   Somehow, the name for one of my applications has changed, but the URL has remained the same.  The website content itself, the website in IIS, and the content database name all still appear to be intact and nothing has changed there.  Everything seems to be fine, I just happened to notice that the NAME of this one web application has changed and it's really bothering me that it could possibly be pointing to the wrong data.  HELP please!

problem rename sharepoint 2010 search service application admin database

Hi all, i have a problem that hopefully someone has an answer to.  i am not too familiar with sharepoint so please excuse my ignorance. we have sharepoint 2010 on a windows 2008r2 server.  everything seems to work fine.  but as you know, the default database names are horrendous.  i have managed to rename all of them, except for the "search service application" admin database. the default is: Search_Service_Application_DB_<guid> the other 2 databases (crawl and property) were renamed without a problem. we are following the article from technet on how to rename the search service admin db (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-nz/library/ff851878%28en-us%29.aspx).  it says to enter the following command: $searchapp | Set-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication -DatabaseName "new database name" -DatabaseServer "dbserver" however, i get an error about identity being null.  no big deal, i add the -Identity switch and the name of my search service application.  but the real problem comes the error it throws:   Set-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication : The requested database move was aborted as the associated search application is not paused. At line:1 char:54 + $searchapp | Set-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication <<<<  -Identity "Search Service Application" -DatabaseName "ShareP

Search Server Express 2010 - Access Denied when attempting to manage Search Service Application or P

I first noticed this error with the Search Service Application when I was no longer able to use the search portal, but have since noticed the issue with the PowerPoint Service Application.  When I navigate in Central Administration to either the "Farm Search Administration" or the "Manage service applications" pages and attempt to manage the "Search Service Application", I get this error: Error: Access Denied  Current User You are currently signed in as:  WHEELERS\MyUserName   Sign in as a different user    I have tried removing the service application and re-adding it, changing the application pool to running under an existing application pool as the farm administrator, as another application pool with the same identity as the primary web application, and as another application pool running under the SP-SearchService identity. The big recent change with SharePoint, aside from fixing the previous issue where I was incorrectly using CNAMEs with Kerberos, was to switch the main web application to claims authentication. That site correctly works with claims based authentication and Kerberos.

Client Application Services - Role service cache time out bug

Hi All, For people using Client Application Services with WPF, be aware of this bug. You can configure the "cache time out" for roles to be fetched again from the service. (In the visual studio dialog, Properties -> Services -> Advanced) This means the roles are cached on the client (in a file). If the application asks for roles again, they are not fetched again for "cache time out" time. When you set this value, it goes into your App.config, transformed into seconds. So if you choose 1 minute, the App.config has: cacheTimeout="60".   However, when using the ClientRoleProvider (for instance to do something like clientRoleProvider.GetRolesForUser("SomeUser")), this cacheTimeOut is interpreted in Minutes, not seconds! To prove my point, check ClientRoleProvider.Initialize method:   string temp = config["cacheTimeout"]; if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(temp)) _CacheTimeout = int.Parse(temp, CultureInfo.InvariantCulture);   Later on, in ClientRoleProvider.GetRolesFromDBUser (what's in a name?), you see: _CacheExpiryDate = cd.RolesCachedDateUtc.AddMinutes(_CacheTimeout);   Testing also shows this behavior. So be aware, and always put the value in minutes in your App.Config!   Regards, Koen

I just installed MOSS SP2 and ran the config wizard on the server.
I am facing issue with our farm. Found that "Windows SharePoint Services Web Application" is in a problem.

I tried below commands:-
stsadm -o provisionservice -action stop -servicetype spwebservice -servicename ""
stsadm -o provisionservice -action start -servicetype spwebservice -servicename ""
But getting error:- Provision of service failed. Additional information: 1387.

Checked eventvwr and found below error log:-

Central Administration, "User Profile Service Application" could not be provisioned


SP 2010 beta2 installed in Server Farm mode, using local account. OS = Windows 2008 R2, SQL Server 2008.

After SP Config Wizard is complete, the SP 2010 Central Administration is opened. I filled in the Service Account, clicked Next and a processing screen is spinning for abiut 3 minutes. After that IE8 displays an error message.

The service application proxy "User Profile Service Application" could not be provisioned because of the following error: The request channel timed out while waiting for a reply after 00:00:19.5439453. Increase the timeout value passed to the call to Request or increase the SendTimeout value on the Binding. The time allotted to this operation may have been a portion of a longer timeout.

Corelation Id: fe1bc44d-88ff-4297-85f8-4b5dcce248c1

Is it a critical error and can you please suggest where I can increase the timeout value?

Thanks very much in advance.
