stsadm -o enumssp error "Value cannot be null. Parameter name: uriString" RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everybody,

    as topic title says, I have this problem when I launch the command

    stsadm -o enumssp -title SSP1

    It returns me:

    Value cannot be null.
    Parameter name: uriString

    I know and I'm sure the SSP name has no spaces and a consequence to this problem is that I cannot do a backup with BackupExec (it throw me the same error).

    Some help would be veeery precious! THANKS!

  • The exception is self explaining: the issue in the the url of your "My Sites".
    Check the typed url in "My Sites" configuration page (central administration).
    It could be empty or invalid.
