    Steps done but did not help :

         pool account

     2.Updated farm credentials by
         using stsadm

     3.Changed the app pool of

  • Have you performed all the steps on ALL the SharePoint Servers.

    Make sure the account is a part of following groups on all the SharePoint servers and has a db_owner/creator and db_securityadmin roles in SQL.


    Before you follow the steps on all the servers please try to clear the config cache from all the servers by

    > stopping the SharePoint Administration and the Timer services from services.msc

    > take a back up of the xml files and deleting them

    > set the cache.ini to 1

    > run stsadm -o execadmsvcjobs

    > make sure xml files are getting generated and then start the SharePoint Administration and the Timer services from services.msc

    > Follow all the steps as per

    > Manually update the app pool identity for CA site

    > Once CA site is up > Update the App pool identity for each Application pool by going to CA > Operations > Service Accounts
