problem creating new site collection RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am trying to create a new site collection in one web application,  But when I create a site collection it is creating with out any error, but when I click on the URL it says "service not available". Do we have any limit for creating a new site collection in one web application. We have already 305 sites collections in the same web application.

    Thanks in advance

  • Gonna need more information here.  Per your number of site collections, you're nowhere near the limit.  "Service Unavailable" could mean a number of things behind the scenes.  Are the application pools up and running for that web application?  Do other site collections in the same web app appear?  Is the newly created site collection in a different content database than the others?  Check into those things behind and see if they're up.

  • At that point I'd wander through the logs in the 12 hive and see if you can identify if the issue is exposed in that manner.  Specifically look for the URL that you're trying to access in the logs itself.

  • Hi,

    carry out these steps:

    1. restart IIS by the command IISRESET.

    2. Look at the event viewer + ULS logs.

    3. Are you able to access other sites?

    If you have not added any content then you can try deleting the site and recreating again.

    I hope this will help you out.


    Thanks, Rahul Rashu

  • Hi Rithu,

    Verify that the application pool account is a member of both the IIS_WPG group and the STS_WPG group on the server.
    Check the link below for further details on administrative and service accounts

  • Since we're talking IDs too, in addition to the above, validate that the identity of the application pool account also has the relevant level of access to the Content DB that houses the site collection in question.

    Let us know how it goes.
