All of the sudden no one can get to their profiles in our SharePoint 2010 Enterprise environment. A lovely unexpected error message pops up. Comparing the correlation ID with the ULS logs, it appears that the web application pool account is trying to access the Search_Service_Application_DB_GUID db. It has never needed this before, and clearly doesn't have it now. Any ideas as to why it's trying to use this account? Does anybody have their web application pool account with any permissions on this db?

  • App Pool does not required the access to the Search DB Unless you have same account for search services and Web App Pool. Also could you please share the ULS logs trace for the correlation ID....Also try to dis associate the Search services from the web App and then try? What about the User Profile Services, up and running and having the proper permission with web app etc? – Waqas Sarwar MVP May 15 '14 at 15:07
  • Yeah, that is completely my understanding as well. Each service application/webapp/etc. has it's own service account. Here's the ULS trace for that correlation ID. textuploader.com/rev6 Some SS's of the services and accounts: imgur.com/x5n3QOY – user16542 May 15 '14 at 15:38

  • So, I tried disassociating the search service from the web app, and it worked just fine. As soon as I re-associated it, it failed again. Seems like something is jacked with that service. May be best to rebuild it... – user16542 May 15 '14 at 18:43
  • do you have any customization on the search services? also check from IIS under which account Search Services App pool running? do you have the search center in the same web app where you have the issue? – Waqas Sarwar MVP May 15 '14 at 20:00
