I have deployed a new SharePoint 2010 Foundation environment, creating site collections locally works fine however when trying to create it through WebSitePanel (1.1) I keep getting this error:
An error occurred while creating SharePoint site collection.
System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapException: Server was unable to process request. ---> System.Exception: Error executing 'ADD_SITE_COLLECTION' task on 'https://devorg.somedomain.co.nz' HOSTEDSHAREPOINT ---> System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapException: Server was unable to process request. ---> Unknown error (0x80005000) at System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapHttpClientProtocol.ReadResponse(SoapClientMessage message, WebResponse response, Stream responseStream, Boolean asyncCall) at System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapHttpClientProtocol.Invoke(String methodName, Object parameters) at WebsitePanel.Providers.HostedSolution.HostedSharePointServer.CreateSiteCollection(SharePointSiteCollection siteCollection) at WebsitePanel.EnterpriseServer.Code.SharePoint.HostedSharePointServerController.AddSiteCollection(SharePointSiteCollection item) --- End of inner exception stack trace --- at WebsitePanel.EnterpriseServer.Code.SharePoint.HostedSharePointServerController.AddSiteCollection(SharePointSiteCollection item) --- End of inner exception stack trace --
Everything seems to be OK permission-wise etc, so not sure. Any ideas?

0x80005000 is access denied error. But all the permissions seems OK...

Thanks for your response Denis,
The permissions were setup correctly. I recreated the SharePoint Web Application (for a third time!) and and it seemed to fix it.
Just another quick query, we had out Virtual Server setup, with the WSS3 Hosted Sharepoint service added. I added the "Hosted SharePoint Foundation 2010" - which is on another server there, and removed WSS3.
So now in our main Virtual Server, Hosted SharePoint has just "Hosted SharePoint Foundation 2010". When creating site collections in new Hosted Organizations they are being created in SharePoint 2010. But we have hundreds of existing organizations/sharepoint sites on WSS3. When adding a new site collection to these orgs, they get created still on WSS3.
Does anyone know if there is there a way to configure WSP to force the sites in orgs with existing WSS3 sites to be created on SharePoint 2010?
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the response Dmitry.
It should be OK though, we have a workaround for these tenants.
We are just adding the site first via WebSitePanel, then creating the equivalent site on SharePoint 2010 via PowerShelll. And updating dbo.serviceItems on the EnterpriseServer database, setting ServiceID to 45 where itemtype=200 and itemname=oursharepointurl.
Then just update DNS, and delete the site from WSS3.
Bit of a hack, but can move on now :)
