MOSS SSP problem - failed database logons

  Asked By: Juana    Date: Jul 29    Category: MOSS    Views: 1098

We've been having some issues with a SharePoint instance in a test
environment. Thankfully this is not production. The problems started
when the disk with the SQL Server databases and search index ran out
of space. Following this, the search service would not run and search
settings in the SSP were not accessible. Reclaiming the disk space did
not correct the issue. So rather than restoring the VM, we decided to
try to fix the issue.

We created a new SSP and changed the association of all services to
the new SSP. The old SSP and it's databases were deleted. Search
results for PDF files are no longer appearing, but the search works
fine otherwise. MySite also works OK.

Following the implementation of this change, these problems started to

* An audit failure message started appearing in the application event
log, for 'DOMAIN\SPMOSSSvc' which is the MOSS farm account.

Event Type: Failure Audit
Event Category: (4)
Event ID: 18456
Date: 8/5/2008
Time: 3:55:19 PM
Computer: dastest01
Login failed for user 'DOMAIN\SPMOSSSvc'. [CLIENT: <local machine>]

* SQL Server profiler is showing queries that reference the old
(deleted) SSP database.

Our questions

* Where would these references to DOMAIN\SPMOSSSvc and the old SSP
database exist?
* Is there a way to 'completely' remove the SSP from the server, and
re-create? The option to delete was not available (greyed out) when a
single SSP is in place.
