Sharepoint SQL Application Errors - Possibly related to Setup User Being Deleted. RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a customer who has been trying to run Sharepoint and is currently having problems.  We are getting the following error in the Application event logs.

    Source: Windows Sharepoint Service
    SQL Database 'SharePoint_Config' on SQL Server instance 'INCUBATORSVR1\SQLEXPRESS' not found. Additional error information from SQL Server is included below. Cannot open database "SharePoint_Config" requested by the login. The login failed. Login failed for user 'NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE'.

    We believe the User which was used to setup Sharepoint has been deleted although the a new user of the same name has been created, we are unclear if the sharepoint settings can be amended to use this account and its new password.

    Can anyone shed any light on the matter?

    Many Thanks
