Azman not opening the authorization store, throws error “The parameter is incorrect” RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a web server which is a windows Server 2008 R2 and is added to a domain. The problem is that when I open azman.msc and try to open the authorization store of type "Microsoft SQL" with a valid connection string which is in the format

    mssql://Driver={SQL Server};Server=MySQLInstanceName;Integrated Security=SSPI;/MyDataBaseName/MyAzManStore

    it gives an error

    Cannot open the authorization store. The following problem occurred: The parameter is incorrect.

    I am also getting the same error when I try to create a new authorization store. But when I do the same in app server(with the same connection string) which is in the same domain and configuration as webserver, it is able to open with out any error.

    Any possible way how to resolve this, my .net application uses azman to authorize users, which is not working because of this issue.

    PS: This was working fine before updating the machine with latest .NET Framework 4 and windows patches. Here are the list of .Net Framework and windows patches that are updated.
