  • Hi,

    It seems to be, latest password not updated in Sharepoint and IIS. You can update latest password in SP using below PS command.

    Set-SPManagedAccount -Identity Domain\Account -ExistingPassword (ConvertTo-SecureString “xxxxxxxxx" -AsPlainText -force)

    You can use STSADM too

    stsadm -o updatefarmcredentials -userlogin Domain\Username -password new password

    Finally check windows services, if any of them using that account. If so, you can mannually set new password.

    Regards

  • Are you able to log-on to the server with builtin administrator account?

    If so, try to open "Central Administration" (by default the builtin administrator are members of "farm administrator" group) and verify the "site collection administrators" of your site collection.

  • Hi Satish,

    Ensure your SQL Server Agent for SharePoint DB instance are running.Its happen when you SQL access account bind with Windows LogOn.The state of this credentials changed when you change your windows account.After enable the TCP/IP from your configuration Manager of SQL Server.
