Reporting Services Error

Getting SQL Server Reporting Services up and running and then integrated with SharePoint can be a bit of a challenge.  There are just different pieces and too many areas where something can go wrong.  When testing your Report Server, you may get this dreaded error message: “The report server has encountered a configuration error. (rsServerConfigurationError)”. …


Office 2003 AD RMS Hotfix Update KB978551

A little late posting this, but better late than never.  In December, an issue surfaced that prevented Office 2003 documents from being opened, if they were protected by Rights Management Server (RMS).  The issue was due to a time-bomb… oops. Users would get a prompt that stated: "Unexpected error occurred. Please try again later or…


SharePoint Farm Credentials – Error encrypting or decrypting credentials

I would give you the background on how this SharePoint environment ended up in such disarray, but considering that it took me 9 hours to get it back up and running, there were way too many things for me to take note of.  This little baby stuck out though. I was running stsadm to update…


Event ID: 14148 in ISA Server – Port 8080

I was configuring ISA Server for a client, and ran into an interesting issue.  It made sense once I realized what the error was.  I was creating two rules, 1 for IP:80 and one for IP:8080.  It was the same IP, but there was an app running on 80, and another app running on 8080….

SharePoint get_IISAllowsAnonymous get_VirtualRootPath

I found a serious issue with a SharePoint implementation recently.  It turned out, there were actually 2 separate places in SharePoint where an error was occurring.  After searching extensively for a resolution, I never found an actual answer / solution.  Most posts said that although they didn’t know what was wrong, they made them go…


SharePoint Error Messages

Not a new concept here, but I thought I would add this to my blog so I’m not always referencing other blogs for it. Plus I will be referring to this post very soon.  🙂 When you get an error in SharePoint, by default it’s not going to be very descriptive.  Actually, all it’s going…


Event ID: 2436 SharePoint Search Error

You may have this error in your environment resulting in your Search Service not being able to crawl your content.  If you’ve verified that your default content access account has the appropriate permissions and you are still getting this error, the loopback check may be causing it.  Disabling the loopback check resolved the error for…


SharePoint Event ID: 4965 System.NullReferenceException

Typically the 4965 error occurs doing Publishing Provisioning because of an access denied issue.  I had blogged about that previously here: Event ID: 4965 – Publishing Provisioning Error.   Today while enabling the Publishing Infrastructure for a site collection, I got a 4965 but was due to a System.NullReferenceException.  By looking at the error message (below),…
