  • Interesting --

    I'm not certain they are related.  Are you using an external datasource (BDC) to pull in profile information?  (I'm trying to figure out where you could have that invalid XML, a typo on the closing tag maybe...)

    Can you also ensure the database account has appropriate permissions and no passwords have expired?

    You can try logging into this database via SQL Management Studio from the Web Front End using that username, or any other methods of verifying the login.

  • First Thanks for your reply.

    I found these longs on same time whenever I get error, so I think it is related. We are not using any BDC yet and pages do not have any custom web parts.

    Another Interesting thing, user that have only have read access can see old version of unpublished page but I get error when I try to open it with admin Account! (Same account that found in Database server event log). But My site is not working for both Admin or visitor accounts.

    Yes admin account has full permissions and password is not expired. And I can login with SQL Management Studio or through Connection string using ADO .NET.
