I manage a Sharepoint site that was created by a former employee/consultant. On 1/7/09 as new year I started to do some clean up of old accounts which were no longer in use, which included the consultant. I just noticed that I've been getting WSS 3 ID 6398 error in the application log every 5 minutes ever since I deleted that account. I thought I had moved every services to a service account, the site still works. I'm afraid to restart IIS or reboot the server. When I browse Sharepoint Admin Central site I can only access the Home tab, the other two come up with Error: "Some or all identity references could not be translated."
I saw another thread that recommend the following command for semilar issue
"stsadm.exe -o updatefarmcredentials -userlogin <domain\user> -password <password>"
i'm not sure of it. My search works by the way.
Event Type: Error
Event Source: Windows SharePoint Services 3
Event Category: Timer
Event ID: 6398
Time: 11:45:00 AM
The Execute method of job definition Microsoft.SharePoint.Searc
finition (ID 1342df47-b535-4d82-9a46-b4
) threw an exception. More information is included below.
No mapping between account names and security IDs was done.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
