SharePoint 2010 - Export Encryption Key

Posted on 2013-05-10

Hi,

I am currently trying to export my encryption key from SharePoint 2010. This environment was setup by someone who has now left the business and I am not sure which account was used that has access to the MIIS database.

The account I am trying to use has full access to all SQL databases within SharePoint but I am receiving the following error message when trying to export the database.

"The Credentials do not have access to the MIIS database"

My question is, is there anyway to find out what account was used for this, or is there a way of adding a new account into the MIIS Database rights area?

Thanks,

Inf

The MIIS database is essentially the "sync" database assocaited with your user profile service application.  Go into SQL and look at the properties of the database, and who the owner is.  

Most likely it's going to be your Farm account, the account used to run your "SharePoint Timer" service.

Hi,

I found the issue was with the SharePoint Farm account credentials not being set correctly.

Don't just delete this question.  I answered what you asked, and told you the Farm account will be the owner.  That is the account that runs your ForeFront services.
