configuration database connection is missing from registry RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello team,

    Our CA 2013 is not working anymore , we are getting lots of error:

    when we open SharePoint configuration wizard and try to open configuration database we are getting below error:

    "Failed to connect to the existing Server farm located at the specified database server and database name. The database name is not a valid configuration database"

    we checked logs and we found again below error :

    "The timer service could not initialize its configuration, please check the configuration database."

    when we did the google for above error (error from log) it said to go to the : HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Web Server Extensions\12.0\Secure\ConfigDB

    Create a folder with that guid as the name in the \Config\ directory, then restart the Timer service.

    (Reference article : https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/lync/en-US/995e27ef-4584-4d0a-b5da-712f5656b00a/the-timer-service-could-not-initialize-its-configuration-please-check-the-configuration-database?forum=sharepointadminlegacy )

    when we went to the mentioned path there is no ConfigDB under mentioned path.

    Kindly help us on this .

    Nothing is working in our server.

    Your help would be appreciated!

  • Make Sure your SPAdmin Account DbCreator & SecurityAdmin from SQL end if not atleast that account should have DbOwner access for all databases. and Make sure your Config Database has Shell Access.

  • Hmmm, Seems like that Server where you are trying those commands are not connected to your SharePoint Farm i guess. Make Sure Server is connected to SharePoint farm and then Go to Control Panel and repair SharePoint and then open Product Config Wizard as an Administrator and run it with your SPAdmin Account.

    Thanks & Regards,

  • Hi Abhi14,

    To repair SharePoint server, you can right click the Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013 via Control Panel->Programs and Features->Change->Repair.

    Besides, if the issue exists, check the following:

    1. Make sure that SQL server service is running and the remote connections are enabled.

    2. Make sure that firewall is disabled in SQL server.

    3. Make sure you can connect the DB server through SP server.

    Here is a similar post for your reference:
