Sharepoint 2010 - can no longer login

Hi Everyone,

I've been fighting with SharePoint 2010 all day. It will no longer accept any logins. Whenever anyone tries to access a site, they get the error "The user does not exist or is not unique." Which is rediculous, as they work fin in Active Directory.

Can't think of anything significant that changed to cause all this.

The app log is full of Event ID 7632 (Publishing Cache), and as per that, I ran som stsadm commands to set new non-farm account users to run the services.  I've done that over the last while, and no problems.

DNS and Active Directory appear fine.

Any idea what's happening here, and what else I can try?

Thanks in advance,

Hi, I ended up getting Microsoft Support involved. They fixed it, was likely caused by corruption in the users database.
