EventID 1000 in SBS 2003 Application Log

Posted on 2006-05-27

I just completed a new installation of SBS 2003 with SP1.  I'm trying to clean up the event logs, but keep getting the following error after I restart.  My SQLAgent$SHAREPOINT service is running and I also made the SharePoint Timer Service dependent on the SQLAgent$SHAREPOINT service.

Event Type:      Error
Event Source:      Windows SharePoint Services 2.0
Event Category:      None
Event ID:      1000
Date:            5/27/2006
Time:            3:39:17 PM
User:            N/A
Computer:      THESERVER
#50070: Unable to connect to the database STS_Config on THESERVER\SharePoint.  Check the database connection information and make sure that the database server is running.

    Accepted Solution

    As I mentioned in your previous question, you must be very careful with any manual configuration or modification to an SBS server.  Since there are so many services running on the same machine, you must use the configuration wizards whenever possible to make modifications since they are really the only way to ensure that you make all changes that are necessary.

    Creating the dependency in the SharePoint timer service doesn't really accomplish much.  I've seen the suggestion tossed around for this, but it's not necessary.  I should also note that there are a number of Error messages that will alsways occur after a server restart, and as long as the service does start these initial errors can be safely ignored.

    But just to be safe here... can you please confirm if you used the Add User wizard and applied an appropriate user template to all users you have added to your SBS?  Further, are all of your users in the default OU (MyBusiness\Users\SBSUsers)?

    This is my exact error and I am unable to find any other resources to get a straight answer.  Does anyone have a solution to this error.  My users are in the MyBusiness\Users\SBSUsers but I have not had to add any other users as we are only a 10 man shop with no turnover.
