Sharepoint Central Administration prompting for credentials

Discussion in 'Windows Small Business Server' started by Omar Formacio, May 8, 2009.

  1. Hi, I installed WSS 3.0 on a SBS 2003. Everything was working fine until SP
    started showing the following two recurring errors on the log: "Could not
    load all ISAPI filters for site/service. Therefore startup aborted" ID 2268
    and "The description for Event ID (1000) in Source (WSS 2.0) cannot be found.
    The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or
    message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. Yopu may be
    able to use the /AUXSOURCE = flag to retrieve this description, see Help and
    Support for details. The following information is part of the event #50070.
    Unable to connect to database STS_Config on DCSERVER\MICROSOFT##SSEE Check
    the database connection information and make sure that the database server is
    running." ID 1000.

    Also, Sharepoint Central Administration 3.0 and any our web application
    stopped working. Anytime we tried to access them it said that there was a
    problem when connecting to database. Also found a problem with the IIS
    stopping not being able to run iis commands.

    After I couldn't fix the problem, I uninstalled WSS 2.0, reinstalled WSS 3.0
    and IIS. Just after reinstalling WSS 3.0 I tried to open the Sharepoint
    Central Administration and it said "Service Unavailable". Changed the
    Identity on the IIS web application from Network Service to configurable
    administrative account and it brought it up (Sharepoint Central
    Administration). The problem here is that everytime I open SCA or the
    default web application created it prompts for credentials. Even if I put
    the adinistrative account information or hit cancel it keeps on prompting 5-6
    times until it finally shows the page. If I click on any link or action it
    prompts again 5-6 times all over again.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated!
