SharePoint and Nintex workflow - Error 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear all,

    1 Month ago, we started to get strange errors with sharepoint and nintex.
    After a workflow has been initiated and some days after if someone try to approve a task (not the case for all user) the workflow is stucking in status 15 with the error:

    System.Workflow.Runtime Error: 1 : Subscription handler of Activity review17bb1fc639b94ba7abcebcb914b1b119.replicatorActivity1 threw System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access is denied. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED))

    It's really look like the following KB (http://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2843542) but workaround doesn't work.
    Users and SharePoint are in the same domain but user can contains some groups from another domain (trusted), and we use Claims. 3 new domain controller has been create at the same day than errors appears...

    Any idea how to resolve this issue?

    Thank in advance.

  • After some discussion with an MS Engineer, it seem that the problem occurred due to our new domain controller version 2012 (in mode 2008).

    We applied the following fix https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2830145 and the problem seems to be solved. (This fix is also now part as windows updated)

    Hope can help someone.
