SharePoint 2010 Servicve Accounts and Windows Server 2008 R2

clock July 23, 2010 18:16 by author Robi

Yesterday, I was was installing SharePoint Server 2010 at one of our clients and after the install I was getting this errors:

User Profile Service Event ID 1511. It says that account could not log on to the computer and create a profile.

After a little bit of research, I found out that all you have to do is edit a local group policy and than run a cmd and all of these errors are gone.

So run a "gpedit.msc" on your WFE where you are getting these errors and go to Computer Configuration/Windows Settings/Security Settings/Local Policies/User Rights Assigneements and Search for Allow log on Locally

Add the account for which you are getting errors. Then, start command prompt and run a command:

 runas /user:kompas-xnet\sp_apppool cmd

 Type the password and if you go to your users folder you should see a folder with your service account name.

You can now remove Allow log on locally permission for the account.

Stop or start all SharePoint 2010 Services

clock July 3, 2010 00:37 by author Robi

During a maintainance of my computer I needed to stop all SharePoint 2010 services. So I was wondering what is the easiest way to do it. In Central Admin, you could do it an click on every service and stop it, but it takes a lot of time. So I was considering some other options and certainly decided that you could do it with a PowerShell script. So here it is:


foreach ($service in $services) {stop-SPServiceInstance -Identity $service -confirm:$false}


foreach ($service in $services) {start-SPServiceInstance -Identity $service}
