Sharepoint project portal and central administration are down

    Question

  • We got a seriose problem- Sharepoint applications  just refuses to run.All Sharepoint-related features are not accessible : neither project portal nor central administration. Althrough services are running and websites too, everytime we try to access  some project portal we got 404 and admininstration (even from TFS server itself) - 503 server error.
    It is a single-server TFS2005 installation on Win2003. On every administrative site access try ASP.Net writes the following warning entry:

    Event code: 3008

    For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

    We already tried to ajust CAS of all possible code groups to Full_Trust, verify that pool identity (tfsservice) has "Allow login locally" permission and even set him as local administrator!
    The most annoying thing is that the whole issue begun after planned sever reboot (previose uptime was veeeeery long), so it is imposible to tell what change caused this problem. Is it possible that CAS of Sharepoint assemblies spontaniosely changed so it need to be fixed?

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Best regards,

  • Hi Michael,

    If both of common and central administration have this issue, you can try to edit them.
    There is a section like   <trust level="WSS_Minimal" originUrl="" /> in web.config

    You can Explore the physical path of  site from IIS.

  • Hi Michael,

    WSS will set the defailt trust level of the site to WSS_Minimal, some thime it will cause security exception. You can try to change the trust level to
    Wss_Medium in web.config.
