Quick Launch Navigation Issue

  Asked By: Urjita    Date: Jun 20    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 924

I have created a site on a seperate port and have given site collection
administrator id to a different account other than the farm administartor as the
Business group does not want anyone else to have access to that site.

The application pool is running under a network service account.

The issue is that when i go to navigation and try to target a link called custom
form to a specifi group created for the site called appadmin sharepoint throws
an eeror unable to find group.

If i change the app pool id to a domain account other than farm adminstrator the
app pool and site stops working.

Sounds like your new domain account  needs permission to get to some of your
resources. If you can provide more detailed information about the error,
maybe we can help you figure it out (assuming your network  admins can't do

You can't willy nilly change  the app pool  ID (APID). That's how IIS authNs to
the content databases :-) Is this a standalone or basic install? That's the only
supported way that network  service should be the APID.

So, you are targeting a SharePoint group  in the same site  as the quick  launch in
question? If yes, then I don't know. If no, then try targeting a group at the
top level site level. You could also try targeting to an AD universal group (if
multiple domains) or Global if only a single domain.

I have created  a seperate  web application  for this site  and removed it from the
earlier site collection. This site was defined as a managed path as a seperate
site collection in a different web app.

Now it is under a seperate web app  with a seperate application pool. This farm
has a front end web server and SQL server on a seperate box.

Yes i am targeting a group  in the same site.This the top level site now there is
no other site.

I understand from the mail below that i cannot use a network  service when i have
a different SQL server and a front end server but when i use a domain  id. The
site and the app pool  stops working.

what was the original app pool  ID?

To properly change  it, you must use Central Administration, security settings
(Operations, Service accounts?, application, select the application  pool, and
change the username and password)

Or the equivalent stsadm command.

You can use network  service when using a separate SQL server, but you need to
give the computer account  of the SharePoint server (that's what network service
actually runs under) access  to the SQL box. Although you can do it you
probably shouldn't because giving the computer account SQL privileges give all
code on the SharePoint server access to SQL.
