SharePoint_Config Critical Error

Posted on 2013-01-03

I have a Windows SBS 2011 server, and a Windows 2008 R2 Standard server named VPSSRV01 and VPSSRV02, respectively. The SharePoint databases were initially running from the SBS server, but I migrated them over to the 2008 R2 server, as that is my dedicated SQL server. SharePoint seems to be working just fine, but I am receiving the following error every 30 minutes on the SBS server:

SQL database login for 'SharePoint_Config' on instance 'VPSSRV02' failed. Additional error information from SQL Server is included below.

Login failed for user 'DOMAIN\VPSSRV01$'.

I cannot find where I could change the user information to be 'DOMAIN\VPSSRV02' to prevent this error, nor could I figure out how to allow 'DOMAIN\VPSSRV01' to have access to the SharePoint_Config database.

Open SQL management studio and connect to your instance. Check under the security node to check this user is there (if not then add it) under user mapping check that sharepoint_config is ticked and the username has read/write permissions

When trying to add a user under the security node, I cannot add a computer. My only options for object types are built-in security principals, groups, and users. Should I create a user with the same name as the server (VPSSRV01)?

You are adding a user not a computer.
When adding the user (if not listed) click locations and ensure the domain is selected rather than the local server

That seems to have fixed the issue. I didn't receive the error at the 30 minute interval that I normally do. Thanks for your help!
