  • Hi!

    You need to open up the ULS log on the server to find out more about the error. If no changes have been done in SharePoint, the ULS logs are located in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\LOGS on your SharePoint server.

    There is 1 file created for every 30 minutes so make sure you open the right file and then just do a search for the correlation ID and let us know the error there and we can help you from there. There are probably a couple of lines with this correlationID, but they all belong to your error, and hopefully there is one line saying what file is not found.

    Thats a snippet of what was in the log after an entry trying to access the site settings.  Im not sure what to do with that though.  It cant find the file...

  • Hi,

    with the correlation ID you'll be able to link all the related events, maybe the error message you got is not the only one (can be others information / warning ones).

    you can also try to look at the Windows Event Log on your server to see if the file not found exception is related to an event external to your SharePoint.

    I recommend to use ULS Viewer (available on codeplex) to filter the log files, or Excel in the worst case.

  • Hard to say from that error message. You didn't see anything else in there explaining what file was not found?

    But seems like alot of people had the same problem and error message when they had there Alternate Access Mappings set up wrong.


    Could that be the problem?
