Domain Problem

  Asked By: David    Date: Jan 23    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 12749

I'm facing an annoying problem on my SPS installation.
On my company, the web servers and database servers are located on separated
domains. These two domains don't have trust relationships between each other.

So I've created a user account named usr_spsadmin on both domains with the same
password. This user is a member of the Power Users group on the web servers and
is assigned Security Administrators and Database Creators on SQL Server.

This user account is set to be used for administrative operations that create,
modify, or grant access to the configuration or portal site databases. It is
also used as the Default Content Access Account and the Portal Site Application
Pool Identity.

The problem is when I try to create the configuration database I get the
following message:
Error accessing database. Verify that the database server name and the instance
name (if present) are correct. Also, ensure the configuration database
administration account has sufficient permissions on the server or instance and
the service corresponding to your SQL Server instance is running.

It seems it cannot authenticate the user. If I click OK again it manages to
create the configuration database (miracle?). But when I try to join other
servers to the server farm, using the Connect to Existing Configuration Database
option, I get "Unexpected error ocurred" and no connectivity.

Do you have any ideas on how I can acomplish that?
